A 2012 Bmw M5 for just €31,990? Think again!

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 18, 2012

A 2012 Bmw M5 for just €31,990 and just 1.450 km? It sounds like an interesting bargain but you should take a look at the car first… This used to be a blue M5 (F10) which was crashed at 300 km/h back in April. The good news is that the two occupants and their dog left the wreck alive, but we don’t have such good news regarding the car.

The engine might be usable, but regarding the vehicle we can’t say the same thing. Everything seems to be destroyed, and yes, the car has the rear wheel on the right in the trunk as it was broken together with the suspension.

Still, there are some good news: the left headlight seems to be ok… For those who don’t know, the Bmw M5 is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine delivering 560 hp and a maximum torque of 680 Newton metres (502 lb-ft) from 1,500 rpm.

The car can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 13.0 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h / 155 mph (305 km/h / 190 mph with M Driver’s Package). Average fuel consumption in EU test cycle is 9.9 litres/100 km (28.5 mpg imp), thanks to the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission Drivelogic transmission.
