What is the history of the BMW 5 series?

Few cars have stood the test of time to evolve from a single design to multiple concepts and styles. The BMW first appeared on the market in 1972 as an executive vehicle. The original intent was to produce a luxurious vehicle that looked like an executive among vehicles. BMW engineers added other designs and incorporated new concepts to the series as consumer demands changed.

Though the BMW 5 Series began as a Sedan, the car has morphed with the years to become a domestic champion as well as a business vehicle. While BMW always included luxury items in the vehicle, the series of cars adopted a wagon or estate design in 1991 and a fastback design in 2007 to complete a full range of looks.
