BMW 525 i
The 5-series was the legitimate successor of all vehicles of the 'new class', whose name ended on '00'. The first edition of the 5-series evolved in 1972, the second edition in 1981. '5' stands for the class, thus it was larger than the 3-series. Both figures thereafter actually indicated the cubic capacity. Taking the 525, with a 2.5 Liter engine, it worked, but, nevertheless, due to some difficulties, it does no longer hold true for all models.
