On Jan. 1, 1980, BMW sold its first unit in the United Kingdom – an E12 5 Series Sedan. 31 years later, BMW UK has now surpassed the two millionth car mark. The 2 millionth car sold was a 5-Series Gran Turismo (530d) and it was bought by Ken Haynes, from Wolverhampton.
“I’m delighted to find out I’m the two million man for BMW,” said Haynes. “The BMW 530d Gran Turismo is the perfect car for me as I like the space, versatility and high standard specification. I run an engineering business under my own name and being able to have a luxury car that allows for large items in the boot is the perfect combination.”
BMW has sold 5,839,866 units of the 5-Series since its launch.
