The watchwords are driver focus, comfort for passengers and a high degree of personalisation for all the occupants. This is a M5 that can be made bespoke for each person lucky enough to drive or travel in it.

In true M5 fashion, the cabin plays host to an incredible amount of technology and driver assists, providing superb comfort for all passengers. Key among these, of course, are the upgraded M Sport heated leather front sports seats, which offer both electric adjustment and memory functions. Both front seats seemingly show only the most minute signs of wear and present themselves in an incredibly tidy manner. Having likely seen even less use, the rear seats also show no notable signs of wear, and could likely even pass for new.

Sleek black leather also adorns the multifunction M steering wheel, which has clearly been well preserved, offering vibrant stitching and no noteworthy signs of wear. Nearby controls follow suit, offering near spotless contact surfaces and flawless functions.

Carpeting throughout the vehicle also presents a tidy finish reflecting plenty of care, as do all four Velour floor mats atop. It is a reflection of the seller's enthusiasm for the car and attention to detail that it actually has two sets of mats - the original M5 ones and an extra set of M mats so that the originals can be kept pristine. The headlining, dashboard and all four door cards boast the same impressive conditions, leaving very little to fault within the cabin of this M5.

Opening the boot reveals a well-fitting Rezkon boot liner, which has seemingly been effective at preserving the grey carpet underneath. It’s here you’ll also find the factory tool kit, warning triangle, and tyre kit.

Accompanying the crisp paintwork are the vehicle’s optionally specified 20” twin five-spoke 343M alloy wheels.

As the first turbocharged M5 production model, the F10 M5 offers a rather unique driving experience when compared to its predecessors. The twin turbos do of course prove to be incredibly beneficial to the V8 lump, providing smooth cruising capability, and then unleashing mind-blowing power and torque with a simple blip of the throttle.

As a 2013 car this one benefits from uprated engine, gearbox and drivetrain. While the headline power and torque figures are so startling they require a second glance, the car's added appeal is that power delivery can be highly individualised thanks to the on-board technology.

All the advisories from the last MOT has been rectified - including new brake discs and pads, new lower suspension arms and new ball joints - and it has never actually failed a MOT in its entire life. Which suggests careful, fastidious owners. Offered today with no known faults and with MOT until October 2023, this M5 introduces an excellent opportunity to experience one of the fastest saloons ever produced.
