The e28 M5, at the time of its release, was considered to be the world’s fastest production sedan. Based on the 535i chassis, the M5 was powered by a race-derived motor developed by BMW’s Motorsports division.
The M5 was introduced at the Amsterdam Motor Show in early 1984. It filled a gap that existed in the automotive market at the time; the M5 offered the everyday practicality of a 5 series sedan, but also the performance of a supercar. The e28 M5 was technologically advanced for its era and came equipped with many creature comforts as standard, including the following: Leather Door Panels, Leather Center Console, Full Trunk Carpeting, Air Conditioning, Power Windows, Power Sunroof, Power Seats, Cruise Control, On-Board Computer, Central Locking and Shadow-line Trim. US market cars were only available in one color, jet black. European customers weren’t quite so limited in terms of color.
The car used S38B35 and M88/3 straight-six engines, both capable of impressive output figures. In the motorsports world, the S38-powered M5 was a successful endurance racing car.
With the exception of 96 cars built in South Africa, all e28 M5s were hand-built at BMW Motorsport in Garching, Germany. With a total production of 2,191 cars, the e28 M5 is quite rare and therefore sought after by collectors today.
