This is a scale model kit to be assembled by an adult; it includes all the parts as indicated, but it does not include glue or paints.
The BMW M5 e39, the third generation of the model, is an example of the struggle between luxury sports saloons in the late 1990s, and for a time the M5 was the fastest saloon on the planet, reaching 300 km/h (limiter disconnected). USPC is finalizing the details of its kit of this model, made as usual in a very fine resin, combined with photo-etched parts for the most minuscule details. We are already looking forward to seeing more!

The BMW M5 E39 is the third generation of the BMW M5. The car was presented in March 1998 at the Geneva Motor Show, and unlike the two previous generations, the M5 E28 and E34, the E39 was manufactured at the German plant in Dingolfing, the largest of the German brand, together with the other conventional BMW 5 Series.
With the E39, an important step ahead was made in terms of power, saying goodbye to six-cylinder engines and moving on to using V8 engines… for the first (and last) time, BMW mounted a naturally aspirated V8 in the engine compartment of an M5.
The engine block used, called S62 B50, also used in the BMW Z8, was an evolution of the M62 engine of the 540i. It was the first V8 to have variable valve timing for intake and exhaust, known as double VANOS, and was developed in conjunction with a six-speed manual gearbox. The power amounted to 400 hp, with 500 Nm of torque.
On an aesthetic level, the E39 incorporated a greater number of changes than in previous generations to identify itself more effectively: new bumper, new diffuser with four integrated exhausts, spectacular wheels and specific mirrors.
Between 1998 and 2003, 20,482 units were sold and in its day it was considered the fastest production sedan, being able to reach 298 km/h if the limiter was removed.
