With the M47, BMW sold a diesel engine with direct injection for the first time. Safety equipment on all models includes anti-lock brakes (ABS), traction control (ASC+T), cornering brake control, electronic brake-force distribution and six airbags as standard.
BMW Z8 E52 convertible.
The BMW Z8 (internal model E52) is a sports car produced by German automaker BMW from March 2000 to July 2003.
The design with the wide BMW kidney and side air intakes, inspired by the BMW 507 roadster produced from 1956 to 1959, was created by Henrik Fisker. The interior was designed by Mike Ninic and Bruno Amatino, the steering wheel by David Carp. Under the direction of Adrian van Hooydonk and David Carp, in close coordination with designers Fisker and Ninic, a concept car was produced under the designation Z 07 which has a high degree of similarity to the design of the production model.
The Z 07 concept car was shown at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show and the 1998 Detroit Motor Show. The production version of the car was unveiled at the 1999 IAA.
Between March 2000 and July 2003, 5703 examples were produced in handcrafted form (555 vehicles based on the Z8 were sold by the car manufacturer Alpina).

The BMW E53 is an all-wheel drive passenger car and is the first generation of the BMW X5.
The vehicle, unveiled in 1999, was the first off-road vehicle offered by BMW. It was manufactured in the USA in Greer, South Carolina. After the vehicle was already in US dealerships at the end of 1999, it also arrived in Germany in May 2000. This first X5 series was produced until the end of 2006 and is thus the predecessor of the BMW E70, which became available in Europe in March 2007.
