This is how BMW tested the handling and suspension on the Legendary BMW E39 M5

BMW E39 M5

Most car lovers consider that BMW E39 M5 is one of the best sport sedans of all time, because of the fantastic engine, great driving attributes, and nice looks. BMW put a lot of time and effort into E39 producing process, and this video produced during the car’s engineering days makes that very clear.

The M5 had to offer sporty handling and cruising comfort,so BMW needed to carefully work and test the car’s suspension. From the video you can see that a rig holds the front suspension over a pair of stationary rolling tracks, so an operator controls the wheels while the tracks accelerate and decelerate the tires.

The wheels steering left and right, setting forces on all suspension component at every angle. The brakes are also pushed to the maximum point, showing just how well they can handle high-load situations. It’s a fascinating look – how a famous car was developed using 1990s tech.

Check it out! Wonder what technology they use to test the new M series…
