11. BMW M5 E61 Touring
This was not the first M5 station wagon and hopefully, it won’t be the last. However, the M5 E61 Touring was the fastest, most glorious of all performance station wagons. Sadly, they only made 1,025 of them, ending production in 2010. BMW presented its E60 M5 with one of the best naturally aspirated engines ever made. It was the high revving 5.0-liter V10 with 507 HP they derived from BMW’s Formula One unit.
To fight Audi’s fast wagons, BMW decided to make a Touring version of the M5 and offer it with a manual transmission. The result was a manual BMW M5 station wagon delivering 507 HP with a six-speed manual. The 0 to 60 acceleration time was just 4.5 seconds with a 205 mph top speed.
