Since 1972, German automaker BMW has been offering the BMW 5 Series, a mid-size luxury executive car. Impressively, this car is now in its fifth generation and is sold in both sedan and touring body styles. Logically, the 5 Series earned its name by being the fifth of the “new series” cars after the V-8 and Isetta era. Models that preceded the 5 series were the 700, the “New Class”, the “New Six” 2500/2800/Bavaria and the CS. BMW introduced the 5 Series in an attempt to replace the smaller New Class sedans, which left the coupes as the company’s low-end model. Marcello Gandini designed the body of the 5 series, which was based on the Bertone 1970 BMW Garmisch 2002ti Geneva show car. Gandini is also credited as designing the Fiat 132 and Alfa Romeo Alfetta, which explains why the three cars have a similar design.
Car Transport For BMW 524
The 524 has been well received by drivers all over and continues to be a sought after model in the marketplace. The popularity of BMW’s cars has not come overnight. The manufacturer has been tirelessly making cars for decades and it appears from their sales volume that their effort is paying off. Five generations of the 5 Series have surfaced to date. The models can be differentiated from each other by their unique chassis numbers (EXX). For the first time with the 5 Series, BMW began its tradition of named its models with a three-digit number. This in fact is a very logical naming scheme. The first digit (5 in this case) represents the model, and the following two digits (typically) represent the size of the engine. The additional letters or words added to the end of the three-digit number are used to define the fuel type (petrol or diesel), engine or transmission details, and the body style.
