BMW 5 series

The BMW 5-Series is a mid-size luxury car manufactured by German automaker BMW since 1972. It is the successor to the 4-door sedan models of the BMW New Class and is currently in its sixth generation. Initially, the 5 Series was only available in a sedan body style. The touring body style was added in 1991 and the 5-door hatchback ("Gran Turismo") was added in 2009. It is BMW's second best-selling model after the 3-Series and in 2010 produced about 50% of the BMW's profits. On January 29, 2008, the 5 millionth 5-Series was manufactured, a 530d Saloon in Carbon Black Metallic. The 5-Series got its name by being the fifth of the "new series" cars after the V-8 and Isetta era and was the replacement for the older four-door New Class sedans. The current BMW naming convention began with the first 5-Series. Currently, six main generations of BMW 5 Series have followed one another: 
 The E12, from 1972 to 1981
 The E28, from 1981 to 1988 
 The E34, from 1988 to 1996
 The E39, from 1996 to 2003 
 The E60, from 2004 to 2010. 
 The F10, since 2010. 
Most of models have been decline on version most sporty by the division Motorsport, called BMW M5.
