The appearance, along with that of owner Sean Kiernan, was part of an international tour that won’t be coming to an end anytime soon. “It’s been fantastic,” Kiernan said outside of the Shell booth where the car was parked. “As long as the car is good, I’m good,” he added. And the car looked great. Its dark green paint still shows the wear and tear put on a movie car and that original look is something Kiernan...

The new M5 is fine and dandy, but the original M5 is a real star. The German brand highlighted its support in the stunt scenes in a new...
