Today's used car of the day comes from the Illinois side of the St. Louis suburbs. It's a 2008 BMW M5 in the rare Interlagos Blue paint. It also has the Sepang Bronze Merino perforated leather interior trim and full interior leather package.

The seller says the car has never been in an accident and it has had a lot of routine maintenance done lately -- he or she even has the documents to show it. The asking price is $23,500.

As a reminder, that year's M5 had a 5.0-liter V10 that, when factory new, put out 500 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. That twist got to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automated-manual transmission. It rode on 19-inch wheels and had features such as dual-zone climate control, sunroof, heated front seats, and a navigation system.

  • Redapple2 C2 is the best. C3 next. Then C7 (looking at you jimII).
  • Jeff S Vulpine--True the CAFE rules are for ICE.
  • Gray I grew up in the era of Panther and Fox platforms. If only they developed a good looking two door Conti. The four doors became a cult in their own right. And kept the 351W as a top line option.
  • Vulpine ABSOLUTELY YES!!! Bring back the TRUE compact trucks. The demand for them is far higher than the OEMs want to admit.
  • Brn More likely, with Google having troubles, the money tree isn't as ripe as it once was and cutbacks are needed.I hope the overall industry continues to evolve. When I get the the point I can't easily drive, I would still appreciate the independence that autonomous vehicles can bring.
