This BMW M5 has had an exceptional destiny, since it was delivered new by the factory to the famous Formula 1 world vice-champion, Didier Pironi. Driving for Tyrell, Ligier and Ferrari in '81 and '82, he won several Grands Prix and the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the Renault Alpine A442B in 1978. After a few months, Didier Pironi sold the car to his friend Gérard Toulemonde, who registered it as 8397 NZ 92 on 29 May 1986. It then passed into the hands of the third and current owner. In original condition, the odometer shows 124,000 km. Maintained regularly, the car drives well. It is also well preserved on the cosmetic level. The bodywork is correct, as is the upholstery, which is entirely covered in blue leather. The car was refurbished by the garage Vaillant in1993 for a total of 60,045 francs. All invoices are in a folder. In 2010, the car benefited from several works, such as the cleaning of the manifolds, replacement of the fuel tank, the silent blocks of the engine, the alternator belt, the exhaust and the tires. In 2013, the clutch was replaced, as were the suspension tie rods in September 2016, followed by the overhaul of the rear suspension (silent blocks and stabilizer bar).
Well preserved, this car which has enjoyed a prestigious connection, is a good representative of a sporty BMW very much appreciated by enthusiasts for its scintillating performance capabilities.
