BMW E60 M5 featured one of the best engines ever built by the M engineers. The S85 engine in the BMW M5 was a technical marvel! The E60 uses an odd firing V10 which has won multiple World Engine of the Year awards, producing 373 kW (500 hp) and 520 Nm (380 lb-ft) of torque. The engine and transmission were designed from scratch for the E60 M5.

The heavy power propelled the M5 from 0 to 62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.7 seconds, making the high-performance sedan one of the fastest sedans of its time. The car was also touted as one of the best sounding BMWs of all time, all thanks to the naturally aspirated V10 engine, the performance-oriented exhaust system and the high revving nature of the engine.


Every once in a while, these engines need to be serviced. This owner has taken this BMW E60 M5 to Precision Sport Industries for a rod bearing service. This is one of the best preventative maintenance options for the S85 in order to prevent any breakdowns or issues.
