Supercharged e39 M5

Recommended Posts

For sale, my beloved Supercharged E39 M5.


I'm sure a lot of people here have seen my car at various shows and yes, it's a lot of money, but please remember that over £65k has been invested in it.


It’s with a very heavy heart I am having to sell my pride and joy, I have owned this example for 8 years, the car has recently undergone a 18 month restore / build process, this has all been fully documented and photographed.


I have owned the car for many years, I have spent my time restoring it to its former glory, I wanted to build a car with the best components, and yet have a car which was super quick when I wanted without losing any of the original refinement


‘Thor’ as I call him, is  utterly civilised to drive, almost normal, but on those occasions when you want to go for it, is sublimely quick, the supercharger is immense and power delivery is shockingly fast, will keep up with most supercars on a good day!


Over the years I have achieved this, sometimes breaking the bank, sometimes working all night on the car to get it perfect, I have had many magazine featured cars over the years , and I am fastidious about how the car is kept. 


This is a very unique vehicle, once in a lifetime build,which has been featured as a cover car for  “BMW Car” magazine

Over the years, I have been lucky enough to have a few magazine cover cars, I am a true enthusiast, cars and bikes have been my passion for years. 


The car has the usual high spec of a M5 and has good extra options fitted, such as,   Leather (Electric / Memory / Heated / Lumbar) seats, Electric Windows, Electric Rear and Side Blinds, Cruise Control, Satellite Navigation, Sunroof, etc. etc.

Please see the Standard and Options details which are listed below.


I will include my cherished plate ‘V8 RYM’ (very m) which has been independently valued at £1700


Only for sale due to investing in a new business which is taking up all of my funds, it’s making me sad just writing this advert, my intention was to keep the car forever.


The car has been through a multi stage detail, machine polished with 3m products and has been finished with GTechniq C1, and finished with two layers of Swissvax Shield.


The build / restore cost is in excess of £65k, so it really is a one in a lifetime car, literally no expense has been spared, this is one serious car and has been created with some of the best products available.


Here are the main details of the car, the pictures really do not do it justice, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I should be surprised if someone doesn't snap this up asap, however, devil's advocate, that price tag on a nearly 12-15year old car? Granted it is one of the best examples seen in a very long time, and goes like the clappers, but still.


If I had that kind of cash, and this is just me listening to the voices in my head, I'd be buying the best of the cheapest and doing the same myself.


And I know what situation this is, as I nearly did the same thing to my turbo E30 (it's not an ///M car but still)

The turbo setup wouldn't sell by itself, and it's a very niche market for people to buy boosted cars that were intended to be N/A. Now I'm planning to take it a little further potentially.


Aside from that small digression I wish you the very best of luck with the sale, and I echo Dan, that you certainly don't need it as it is such a beautiful example.



Ps: Anyone need a kidney, lung and half a liver? £40k ono

Wow Tony, I never thought I would ever see you sell her!! I can't see it hanging about for long as it quite simply the perfect M5

What a stunning looking M5 - just love the wheel style and colour against the bodywork.


And the price? Why not....? Someone will snap it up, as you say, it's unique and very obviously a genuine example.  


Edit: just noticed that you are very close to Gatwick, where I'm sitting now "working" - I thought that the plate was familiar.

I can't see a problem with the price and would snap it up if money, well, the lack of wasn't a problem.

GLWTD (D for depression) when it sells very soon

This car has become a fixation.. has it sold yet?

I'm meeting the devil next week to discuss terms, so before selling my soul, has someone else taken ownership of this car-porn?

Good luck with the sale, I've never checked my lottery tickets more keenly..

Apologies guys, but not been on here in quite a while due to work with new business.


Let this slide as was happy that Id sorted funding out and could keep her. Sadly, with passing of business partner, that is no longer the case and I'm gutted to say she will now be back up for sale.....will take a close reasonable offer for a swift pain free sale.

No idea, all went quiet.


If it did it stayed local to Gatwick as I saw it parked up off the A23 between Redhilll and Horley a few weeks back. Stunning example.

Yeah, though she won’t go out with salt on the road if I can help it!

Funnily enough, spotted your car on a YouTube video of an E39 meet at the Ace Cafe


Nice burnouts!
