The E39 M5 is one of BMW’s best driving machinery ever, and even by today’s standards, it is still a sturdy sports car. In view of this, it is not surprising that some people are willing to pay high prices for people in their original state. However, in the case of this car, which just sold for $200,000 ($199,990, to be precise), it was taken to a whole new level.
The car has been sold in a dealership in Cincinnati, the Enthusiast Automobile Group (EAG), which specializes in the production of BMW M cars.

So, why does it sell so much? The short answer is because it is rare and in good condition. This M5 originated in 2003, which is the last model year of the E39 generation. The sports car is in its best condition, but it is one of the smallest production volumes in any year. In addition, not many people initially bought these cars, and they all regarded them as collectors’ items. Therefore, few people kept them in good condition, let alone the conditions of the showroom like this.

In addition, according to Road and Track’s interview with EAG owner Eric Keller, if you think its $200,000 selling price sounds absurd, he actually thinks that we might see some E39 M5 priced more in the near future. high. That’s because the paint color of this car, Carbon Black, is one of the most popular colors on North American models, so he believes that an example of a similar situation using a rare paint scheme can sell for $250,000, or even higher.
