Classic Car Auctions says:

A freshly restored E34 BMW M5 which has had thousands of pounds lavished on it...Presented in the great colour combination of Oxford Green with a black and green quilted leather interior. Between 1988 and 1995, E34 M5s were hand built at BMW in Garching, Germany and they were carefully assembled by a single 'M-Sport' employee or a dedicated team, and generally took about two weeks.

In the second half of 1991, the S-38 straight-six engine displacement was increased to 3.8 litres with a resulting increase in power output to 335bhp, and this was the final development of an engine that could trace its origins back to BMW's Touring Car programme.

A bare metal respray in its original Oxford Green was recently completed in February this year. The interior has obviously been the focus of extensive attention and the details are below. The engine was stripped and serviced with new belts, water pump, etc and the rocker covers were stripped and powder coated. A new upgraded clutch was fitted, new top of the range coil over suspension plus a full disc, pad and calliper upgrade. The rare original BMW 'Throwing Star' alloy wheels were fully refurbished and finished with Oxford Green centres. Further details of this M5's rejuvenation are in the Vendor's comments below.

This car has covered 175,000 miles, which is supported by a huge history file with lots of old receipts and invoices, some old MoTs and all original BMW books and service records. Supplied with a fresh MoT Certificate valid until February 2017.
