Times Around. History of the BMW 5

Sales of the BMW 5 Series already to more than 5.5 million in five model generations – and now a new is starting in the highly successful of the BMW 5 Series Sedan.

While the generation naturally follows the heritage of its predecessors, its roots go much further. As early as in the BMW developed a strong and distinctive as a manufacturer of sporting but elegant, and technically innovative midrange sedans. Introducing a four-door body, engines fitted at the front, rear-wheel drive and an suspension, BMW established a classical at the time which remains attractive and fully endorsed to very day.

It was at that time that the BMW the BMW 1800 and the BMW 2000 entered the as the ‘New Range’, establishing the successful model series BMW had seen up to that point. The in the development and production of saloons by BMW wîth these models the Company a worldwide breakthrough as a of modern and highly desirable wîth very individual

Switching from the New Range to the BMW 5 in 1972, BMW introduced not only new but also a new era in design.

Indeed, the ‘5’ immediately became the for unmistakable driving pleasure in §egmènt. Ever since, the BMW 5 has stood for sedans which, their design, offer harmonious balance of sportiness and authentically reflecting a unique of driving dynamics and motoring ensured by superior drivetrain and technology. The BMW 5 Series therefore a particularly concentrated rendition of the competence in development of this car maker from Munich.

the BMW 5 Series makes its debut.

The BMW 520 and the BMW wîth four-cylinder power developing 115 and, respectively, 130 hp presented at the 1972 Frankfurt Show as the successors to the New Range. The designation introduced a new concept the nomenclature of BMW cars to this day, wîth the ‘5’ at the specifying the series as such and the two numbers indicating the displacement of the model. At the same time model designations brought memories of legendary BMWs in the such as the BMW 501 ‘Baroque Angel’ and the BMW 507 sports car.

In its design, the BMW 5 Series stood out from the through its stretched and sleek large windows and low waistline. As elements typical of the brand, the headlights and the Hofmeister kick in the were re-interpreted in new style and French designer Paul thus setting the foundation for the language of BMW so characteristic in the 1970s. To calculate the car’s deformation in the interest of superior occupant BMW’s engineers for the first used superior computer to a large extent.

Introduction of the BMW 525 in the year of production hailed the of the first six-cylinder into the The powerful and, at the same refined engine featured in top model delivered an impressive 145 hp. wish for additional power one of the most important reasons for the model range also in the to come, BMW Motorsport GmbH in 1972 providing particularly input by presenting the BMW M535i its 160 kW/218 hp six-cylinder in 1980.

second generation, first

Accounting for sales of almost units, the first generation of the BMW 5 more than doubled the of the New Range in the market. The next launched in 1982 then this story of success, faithful in its design to the principle of lines and large windows.

its even more striking front and rear, the new BMW 5 Series, its exterior dimensions remaining identical, offered far greater and flair on the road. Engineering and intelligent lightweight technology more space within the optimum weight and improved safety. The newly developed wîth its double-joint front and semi-trailing arm rear axle in particular to enhance the motoring offered by the new model.

Modern systems were also into the BMW 5 Series at this ranging from anti-lock via an on-board computer all the way to electronic injection.

Right from the upon its introduction into the the new sedan came wîth a model range and engines from 90 to 184 hp. A particularly sporting was introduced in 1984, even the 218 hp BMW M535i was not the last word Motorsport GmbH this Instead, Motorsport GmbH presented the very epitome of the Sedan at the 1985 Frankfurt Show, the BMW M5. Hardly distinguishable the other models when from outside, the BMW M5 was optimised beneath its sheet metal for driving dynamics. Power from a straight-six boasting technology and no less than six butterflies.

Output of this unit derived from the BMW M1 was 286 hp, developing supreme thrust and previously offered by only the thoroughbred sports cars.

The taken by BMW in 1983 to enter the contested diesel market the BMW 524td was almost a revolution. To the character so typical of the brand wîth a diesel, the only was obviously to give the car a powerful and turbodiesel engine. The 2.4-litre developing maximum output of 115 hp these requirements in a truly manner, the BMW 524td offering the performance of all diesels in its §egmènt at the same time, the highest of fuel efficiency.

Clearly, diesel sceptics were by this innovative combination of muscle and equally outstanding

Entry into the diesel was not the only option for BMW to bring sporting performance and superior On the contrary – precisely at this BMW had already completed a large of studies and innovations in developing fuel-efficient technologies and lòòking for sources of energy. Many of innovations went into production in the course of time, set the foundation for long-term research

One example is the hydrogen-powered test car as early as in 1976 on the basis of the BMW 5 Series.

Apart from the a particularly efficient petrol of the

BMW 5 Series proved suitable for production right from the The BMW 525e was powered by a six-cylinder and built consistently for superior and economy all in one. Displacing 2.7 the power unit named the Greek letter ‘eta’ known as the symbol for efficiency maximum output of 125 hp at an engine of 4,250 rpm, wîth torque of 240 Newton-metres/177 lb-ft at 3,250 rpm. New engine optimised weight and a five-speed wîth an overdrive economy were further features to give this model efficiency.

The second generation of the BMW 5 was replaced after seven of production. By this time had amounted to more than units, again setting a new

1988: third generation of the BMW 5 – for the first time also as the

With BMW having started the of catalyst technology back in the third-generation BMW 5 Series was fitted the start exclusively wîth high standard of emission The first models available the beginning in 1988 were the BMW the BMW 525i, the BMW 530i, the BMW 535i, and the BMW – all wîth six cylinders and electronic injection.

A new BMW M5 was also introduced at an point, wîth engine of 315 hp further increased to 340 hp in 1992.

The two BMW 530i and BMW 540i followed in wîth the BMW 518i being in 1993 as the entry-level model a four-cylinder power unit. In the the six-cylinder engines, benefiting four-valve technology and variable camshaft management, had gained greater power, torque and

With its precisely defined zones and even stiffer cell, the third generation of the BMW 5 set new standards in the area of occupant As an option the elaborately refined was available wîth electronically dampers, a further option speed-related Servotronic §teering ASC Automatic Stability Control was available for the first time in to the anti-lock brake system.

The BMW 5 Series wîth electronically drive was launched in 1991, the of fully variable power from front to rear, wîth a rear axle lock, proving right the start in the first comparative to be superior to all four-wheel-drive systems so far.

Compared wîth its the third-generation BMW 5 Series was significantly and came wîth a lot more inside, also thanks to its design. Indeed, the new sedan under the guidance of Chief Claus Luthe combined elegance and flowing lines a distinctive wedge shape. stylish character was then over by the designers to the first BMW 5 Touring, this unique revealed at the 1992 Frankfurt Show offering a brand-new and brand-new features behind the

With sound insulation given particular significance, the of sound within the body was the same as in the sedan even the generous space inside formed an ideal resonance for acoustic effect and disturbance. The BMW 5 Touring was fitted from the wîth self-levelling on the rear


The Touring model was available nearly all the engines also on the sedan, and as an option also wîth all-wheel drive. A BMW M5 joined the range in 1992, sales of this five-door confirming BMW’s concept to additional practical value attractive design: Overall of the BMW 5 Series Touring up to 1996 to approximately 125,000 units, and sales of the third-generation BMW 5 Series more than 1.3 million the world over.

1995: the generation – for the first time light-alloy suspension.

The fourth of the BMW 5 Series made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, an evolutionary development through its of the former model wîth its and elegant style. A particular at the front was the dual round behind a glass cover, the light rings for the positioning and driving lights so typical of BMW added in the year 2000.

the sedan and the Touring introduced in once again offered more space within the compartment. Boasting features as a multifunction §teering wheel, a system, active seats and Stability Control, the BMW 5 Series was as a particularly outstanding high-tech of its §egmènt.

In the interest of enhanced driving and safety, the body came a significant increase in torsional over the former model, and the BMW 5 Series was the first large-scale car worldwide made almost of light alloy. The newly all-aluminium power units helped to significantly reduce the of the car.

The new model entered the wîth straight-six power delivering maximum output 150 to 193 hp. Technical innovations gave the petrol and diesel engines more power on further fuel consumption. Two V8 engines introduced once again in wîth the new BMW M5 entering the market in wîth the most powerful engine built by BMW up to that this 294 kW/400 hp power came, among other wîth features such as oil controlled for centrifugal forces and controlled individual throttle

The fourth generation of the BMW 5 Series again set up a new sales record for 1.47 million units up to the end of production in early 2004.

the fifth-generation BMW 5 Series – progressive and

From the start, the fifth of the BMW 5 Series introduced in 2003 out through its impressive design and technology. Once again, the sedan and the Touring launched in set new standards in terms of active driver assistance systems, and BMW’s typical design wîth convex and concave as well as flowing transitions the front and side to the rear the fifth edition of the BMW 5 Series a characteristic note, the interior its clear-cut functions highlighting all the iDrive control system as standard.

Engines wîth an or, respectively, a composite aluminium/magnesium as well as the lightweight aluminium section of the car ensured a particularly balance of weight front-to-rear. important component newly at the time was the integral rear likewise made of aluminium

DSC Stability Control was yet another innovation contributing to the car’s suspension technology, particularly its enhanced range of functions. The superiority was provided for the first by Active Steering and Adaptive wîth electronic damper and anti-roll stability management. As in the area of driver assistance, the BMW 5 Series also featured technologies such as the Head-Úp and BMW Night Vision, Active Control wîth Stop Go and Departure Warning introduced as new in the car.

The range of engines in the BMW 5 was expanded to six petrol and four engines extending from 125 hp in the BMW 520i all the way to 270 kW/367 hp in the BMW 550i. The BMW M5 and the BMW M5 in turn, came wîth a V10 high-speed power unit individual throttle butterflies and oil supply, wîth maximum of 373 kW/507 hp.
