The fourth-gen BMW 5-Series suspension test rig is mesmerizing

THE E39 M5 IS REGARDED AS ONE OF THE BEST SPORTS SEDANS EVER; HERE’S PART OF THE REASON WHY

The fourth generation of BMW’s 5-Series sedan is often cited by fanboys as one of the best-handling sports sedans ever. Often called by the internal BMW nomenclature, the E39 BMW M5 is still a capable handler, even by today’s standards.One of the reasons could be how much time BMW’s development team dumped into the chassis, which consisted of, at least, a strangely mesmerizing test rig. Despite this video’s short length, you’ll likely find yourself getting lost in the undulations of the chassis.

The test rig shows the way that the suspension reacts at the limits: under heavy braking, full suspension compression and bouncing through curves. There’s a near-constant squeal from the tires as they fight for grip on a simulated barrel road.

If you’ve ever wondered why the E39 M5 was so capable, this is a solid window into the car’s development. Even better, it’s strangely hypnotic.
