BMW E39 530i FL "Individual" – A Masterpiece of Automotive History

The original vehicle on which this miniature model is based is the BMW E39 530i from the fifth generation. The BMW E39 was produced from 1995 to 2004 and was a significant model series in BMW's history. The design and engineering were carried out by Chris Bangle and Claus Luthe. The BMW E39 succeeded the BMW E34 and was later succeeded by the BMW E60. In 1998, this model series underwent a facelift, which is reflected in the design of the model depicted here.

The BMW E39 530i was known for its driving experience and the combination of performance and comfort. The model was equipped with a 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine producing 231 horsepower. This power, along with precise steering and a well-tuned suspension, made the BMW E39 an impressive vehicle on the roads. Technical highlights included a multi-link rear axle and a lightweight aluminum front axle, contributing to the optimization of handling and driving dynamics.

This modelcar in the collection of Bmw-M-Fan is one of registered models on Modelly!

Special Features and Customizations

This miniature model has special customizations that set it apart from the standard miniatures. Particularly noteworthy are the additional exterior features such as the unique wheel-tire combination and the modified vehicle height, suggesting a lowered stance. These modifications are not part of the original production by Otto Models. "Bmw-M-Fan" has made additional personal customizations to make this model a unique piece that enriches his collection.

The interior of the model is meticulously detailed. The black dashboard and the sporty-designed seats in a brown tone stand out, providing a contrast to the exterior paint.
