Gruppe M is the name of the division of Bavarian Motor Works that creates the "M" editions of BMW cars. Starting with the M1 designed by Giugiaro in the late 1970s, the M division has created a line performance cars destined to become classics. My heart beats a little quicker whenever I see an M6 from the 1980s.

Some of the most famous "M cars" are the M6, M5, and of course the M3. The introduction of the E36 M3 marked a new level of perfection for the "sports sedan" that BMW first pioneered with the 1970s 2002. The E36 M3 has since given way to the improved E46 model, but he E36 is still an incredible performance machine.

Now Gruppe M has created a monster M5 sports sedan with the first ever BMW V-10 engine for street use. The new M5 will definitely set a totally new standard for fast sedans with its incredible power and handling. The M5 will also feature a unique interior with extensive brushed aluminum accents.
