The first BMW M5 appeared in 1985 on the E28 generation. This one comes to revolutionize the world of sports car by declining a wise basic sedan in a real monster of the road able to compete with some Porsches. Presented in January 1988, the new BMW E34 will experience worldwide success and a 10-year career. The very desirable M5 is the flagship of the range and develops 315 horsepower, it rages without competition in the high-end market of the fastest sedans in the world with a top speed of 250 km / h then 280 km / h with the latest version 3.8l. Out of a total of 1.3 million E34s sold, there are 3,910 examples equipped with the 3.8 engine, of which only 752 with the rare 6-speed gearbox. Its career is divided into three major stages: The 3.6 L model of 315 hp, the 3.8 L version from 1991 then the 3.8 L EVO with 340 hp from May 1994. The M5 EVO is therefore the most desirable evolution being the last BMW to be equipped with the magnificent M30 6-cylinder engine derived from the sublime 2800 CS coupe. This last version is extremely rare, which is explained by a high selling price of 605,000 francs (excluding options) in 1995!
The model that interests us in these pages is therefore one of the last M5 EVO manufactured since it was put into circulation on September 6, 1995. Specific to the EVO model, this one is equipped with the new Getrag 6-speed gearbox, 18 inches rims and huge 345 mm diameter compound disc brakes clamped by 4 piston calipers. Sold new in Italy and registered in the Pirelli name, it is ordered with a few rare options such as the light gray leather interior "Silbergrau Hell L7SH", the center console and the door trays covered in leather, the driver's seat with electric control with memory, the rear curtain, a ski hatch and Motorsport mirrors. The elegant color "BMW Cosmosschwarz-Metallic 303" completes the package.
Its second owner is a pharmacist from Courbevoie. It was registered in France on January 29, 2001 with 45,111 km on the odometer, as evidenced by its Utac report. It also allows us to see a regular mileage until its acquisition by its 3rd and current owner in June 2017. Since then, the vehicle has been thoroughly revised, with the replacement of the fuel circuit, the brake hoses, the pads. , spark plugs, belts at the specialist BMW GAP Automobiles. Accompanied by its user manual, its three original keys plus the two emergency keys and a file to trace its history up to April 2000 with invoices, technical checks and expert report, this car is in very good original condition. On test, the car proves to be incredibly versatile, accepting to be driven at a smooth pace and to go through shameful speeds in complete safety on secondary roads. No parasitic noise disturbs its near-perfect driving pleasure. With certified mileage of less than 78,000 km and a pristine technical inspection up to date, this M5 3.8 EVO is a rarity not to be missed.
