Weißer Ritter: 1991 BMW M5 E34

The E34 generation M5 was the last of the hand-built BMW M-cars...but I probably didn't need to tell you that if you are remotely an ///M-car fanboy or fangirl.  It was also the last BMW M-car to feature an engine that had even the remotest link to a BMW Motorsports racing engine....but I probably didn't need to tell you that anyway...why do I even bother to write this stuff?  Find this 1991 BMW M5 E34 offered for $10,500 near Las Vegas, NV. Tip from FuelTruck.

 I know what you are thinking, another BMW...geez DT, are you guys on the payroll.  No, not on the payroll, but I've been on a rear-drive manual-transmission sport sedan kick recently, and well...that naturally leads to BMW and the M cars are just so scrumptious.

The North American E34 M5 left the factory with a 3.6 liter S38B36 inline-6 that puts out 307 horsepower and 266 ft-lbs of torque into a Getrag 280 5-spd manual gearbox.  This particular car has its original M-System wheel setup, where an 17x8 black alloy wheel is covered with a bolted on direction wheel cover with fins that were designed to draw cool air into the brake/hub assembly similar to something used on a modern F1 car.

See another E34 for cheap?


  1. My love for the early split rear seat on this is only equalled by my fear of a S38 with almost 200k miles.

  2. I'm not sure that white does this shape any favors with the M systems in place. Still, I'm a little surprised it's still available at this $

  3. I just noticed his $95k MSRP listed too.....these were under $60k back in the day....makes me wonder what else he doesn't have a freaking clue about when it comes to this car.
