Full History

    or a long time now we have been struggling to supply E28 M5s to an ever growing list of

customers keen to get their hands on BMWs ultimate super saloon. With only 187 European

right hand drive examples built, demand massively outstrips supply.

The remaining superb examples are now mainly locked away in long term ownership and we

are unable to prise these special cars away from protective owners. Others are simply too

rusty, badly maintained, poorly restored and like all classic cars, went through that period of

time when value was almost nothing and the wrong owners got hold of them. Previous

restoration work was usually carried out to a standard that represented the value of the car

then. Most E28 M5s offered to us for sale would be rejected. They would not be good

enough for our collection so certainly not good enough for our customers.

The E28 was the first generation of M5. The path had been laid to a more extreme and faster

super-saloon by the exciting and highly accomplished E12 M535 of 1980 and 81. This car

being the first Motorsport saloon car from BMW Motorsport, with sales being far more

successful than BMW ever imagined.

Despite the eye watering price tag of the E28 M5 in 1984, customers were soon queueing up

for this Ferrari in a Savile Row suit. That has to be thanks to the decision of BMW Motorsport

to use the M88 engine from the BMW M1. 286 bhp produced from the tried and tested 3.5

litre, 24-valve, twin cam power plant but now fuelled by Bosch Motronic rather than the rather

crude mechanical injection system of the M1.

It is extremely rare to find an E28 M5 as superbly restored as this example. The previous

owner had the car restored to add to his modern classic collection. It was a no expense

spared exercise and the 3” deep folder of parts invoices from BMW show an eye watering

number running in to tens of thousands of pounds.
