Imola Red E39 M5 Evolve Supercharged

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
We built this car for our customer John over a period of 4 years and I knew it to be absolutely pristine inside and out. He actually made us develop our supercharger kit on this car with a billet plenum as he wasn't happy with the other offerings out there.

It has also has full Evolve Exhaust including manifolds (630 BHP), BBS LM, Brembo BBK and Bilstein Suspension.

He unfortunately passed away last month after a battle with cancer and his wife phoned me and asked if I would be interested in the car.....1 week later it arrived home. Represents a lot of history for Evolve as it features most of the parts we ever made on this platform. John would have appreciated it has gone to a good home.

Such an awesome looking beast.

I don't think I have ever seen a red E39 M5, absolutely beautiful.




Condolences to John's family.

If 'the news' regular-ed stories like this, I'd be an active watcher.

Really great stuff here

Imran, if this car was in the US I would have purchased it. Currently, my dad has stage 4 lung cancer.
One day back in 2001, I was driving with my dad on the fwy. My eyes caught a glimpse of an E39 M5 that was 4 cars ahead. I was telling my dad about The performance aspect of the E39 M5. He told me with a confident voice “ I hope you get a good paying job so you can buy one”. I replied “yes, so I can take you in on a ride in it”. I hope I can get to do that either an E39 or F90.

when I bought my e39 540i back in 2004 which I still have and enjoy I was looking at a similar imola red M5 and I couldn't take my eyes away from it for constant 30 mins but I couldn't afford it. Such a beautiful car.
Enjoy it Sir and RIP Mr. John
