The Story of the BMW E39 M5

The original BMW E39 M5 is a significant luxury sedan that was developed as part of the BMW 5 Series generation from 1995-2003. This generation of the M5 was designed by Claus Luthe and brought a number of impressive technical specifications. The E39 M5 was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1998, setting new standards for high-performance luxury vehicles. Equipped with a 4.9-liter V8 engine delivering 400 horsepower and a torque of 500 Nm [369 lb-ft], this M5 could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h [0-62 mph] in around 5 seconds. The vehicle dynamics were enhanced by the precise 6-speed manual transmission and impressive suspension, providing both a comfortable ride and sporting performance. The direct predecessor of this model was the E34 M5, which was also known for its excellent performance and driving dynamics.

Insight into the Otto Models 1/18 scale

The model car shown was crafted by Otto Models in a 1/18 scale and is an accurate replica of the BMW E39 M5. It is important to emphasize that this is a modified miniature model and does not represent the product originally manufactured by Otto Models. The base of this model is made of resin, a material often used for collector's models as it allows for very detailed surfaces. The miniature showcases a faithful reproduction of the car's bodywork, including correct proportions and distinctive design features such as the dual headlights and the characteristic BMW kidney grille. The collector "Bmw-M-Fan" has carefully added this miniature to their collection, reflecting the detail and precision of the model.

Technical Differences and Tuning Details

From the photos, it can be seen that the model has been modified, unlike the standard product from Otto Models. Special mention can be made of the depicted rims, presumably from BBS, which enhance the model's visual appeal. Originally, the E39 M5 was tuned by Hans-Joachim Stuck at the BMW Motorsport factory, who significantly contributed to the performance tuning of chassis components. This exclusive miniature is presented in a dark metallic paint finish that accurately mimics the real BMW E39 M5. Even without functional components, this model provides a detailed insight into the aesthetics and design of the original.
