Description for BMW M5 1988

1988 BMW M5 Sedan

VIN WBSDC9308J2875009

Color: Schwarz (Black)

Interior: Natural

One of 1,236 manufactured for the US market in 1988, thise28 M5 in period was the fastest four door sedan you could purchase. Availableonly in black with a natural leather interior, it is powered by the same enginethat was first seen in BMW’s legendary super car the M1. The S38 straight sixengine has six individual throttle bodies and four valves per cylinder. Thismotor happily revs to 7000 rpm and will propel this unassuming black sedan tobeyond 150 mph and 0 to 60 in 6.7 seconds. Rather ordinary today, this wasapproaching super car territory in the late 1980’s.

Each M5 was hand built at BMW’s Motorsport facility andbased on the tried and true e28 5-series platform. Numerous manufacturers triedto copy this formula, but none were as successful as BMW. The M5 couldchallenge a Ferrari 328 while transporting four people in comfort and providethe reliability of a BMW. Theseparticular BMW’s are very robust and it is common to find most M5’s withmileage in excess of 150,000 miles.

This example was originally sold in the Northeast andeventually ended up in the Northwest. The car shows no signs of being used insnow or harsh environments. The underside is clean and rust free. In addition,this M5 retains all the original panels and VIN decals. Most importantly, thecar has been properly serviced and shows just under 75,000 original miles. Theprevious owner, a collector and vintage race enthusiast, had the car long termand drove it sparingly. Accumulating very few additional miles.

Very rare opportunity to purchase a BMW icon and a sedanthat will offer the driving experience of a sports car. This is the least expensive e28 M5 in this condition available and advertised. Seller is long term BMW CCA member and enthusiast. Additional photos showing the underside are available to prospective buyers. Inspections or PPI are encouraged.
