BMW’s transition to V8s came at an interesting time, as the top performance model in the M5 had the S38 inline-6 through ’95 (’93 in the US), and the 540i overlapped for a year as it came in ’93 with its bruising 4.0L V8. The M60B40 V8 as down about 30 hp to the M5′s S38B36, but made up for it with an extra 30 lb-ft of torque. This gave an interesting choice to prospective E34 buyers. Once the M5 left the North American market in 1993, the choice became clear, especially with the introduction of the M-Sport package in 1995. Unique suspension, seats, and some leftover bits from the M5 made these 200 examples very special, and 140 of those came with an exceptional 6-speed transmission. All that torque and all those gears made this the standard until the E39 M5 came out and shattered everyone’s fragile little minds.
Final year for the classic E34 chassis. One of only 200 sold in the US. One of only 135 with the 6-Speed manual transmission. Beautiful Cosmo Black Metallic over black leather. Original 17″ throwing star wheels with matching spare. Electronic dampening control, ASC traction control, heated leather seats. European clear front, side & rear light package. (originals available).
Super clean non-smoker cockpit, original BMW Sound System With 6-disc CD changer. Ice cold air conditioning. All original books, manuals, tools, floor mats, spare, jack, flashlight, & window sticker included. Runs, drives & smells great!
Looking mean in black on black with the M5′s classic throwing stars, this is an awesome E34. 164k miles is no spring chicken, but at $9,900 Buy-It-Now and the opportunity to make an offer, this could be a fast and fun saloon.
