i definatly think it would be the e60 m5 that would be going down as that.
when ever you hear discussions of the "M5" it seems the term V10 always pops up and how it was like an exotic race car in the body of a sedan.
and we know which one had the V10
and IMO the e60 m5, when seen on the road still looks fairly current and turns heads alot more than the e39, which just looks, "really old".
