Freshly Imported from Japan
2006 BMW E60 M5
This E60-era BMW M5 is a recently imported and well-specified example of the marque’s V10-powered super saloon, finished in atasteful factory hue and boasting low mileage from new.
It is powered by a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine, delivering 500bhp to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automated manual transmission with paddle shifters.
The odometer of this example reads just 55,867 miles from new.
This M5 is fresh from an oil and spark plug service, which was carried out upon its arrival in the UK in October 2021.
EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES
This M5 is finished in the timeless hue of Silver Grey Metallic, complemented by a Silverstone Two Merino leather and Madeira nut wood-trimmed cabin.
The car rides on a set of19-inch ‘Style 167M’ alloy wheels, shod in Pirelli P Zero tyres.
Factory-fitted equipment includes heated electrically adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, satellite navigation, a heads-up display, a panoramic glass roof, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and adaptivexenon headlights.

There is no impact damage present on the bodywork.
In Japan it received an auction grade of 4.5, which denotes a car in excellent condition, verified by an independent inspector.
The Silver Grey Metallic paintwork is in very good order, with just a small mark on the os front wing and rear spoiler .
Inside, the cabin presents well, with some creasing and light wear on the SilverstoneMerino leather-trimmed seats, but with no major wear or heavy discolouration.
There are no known faults with the car, and no warning lights on the dashboard.
The car’s most recent MOT test took place on 1 November 2021, resulting in a first-time pass with no advisories.
This M5’s latest service was carried out during October 2021. The work consisted of an engine oil and filter change, along with the replacement of the spark plugs and air filter.
This E60-era BMW M5 is a handsome and well-presented example of the breed, which is a recent Japanese import. Having been recently serviced and had the requisite interior change made to ensure it is all in English language, it now needs nothing more than to be driven and enjoyed.
Given the impressive amount of power on tap from its thoroughly characterful V10 engine, the next owner will likely be grinning from ear-to-ear every time they drive it.
All UK-registered cars and motorbikes are run through an online HPI check. On the HPI report, this vehicle shows no insurance database markers for damage or theft, and has no finance owing.
