The E34-generation BMW M5 has historically been the least sought-after by enthusiasts for several reasons. It wasn't as rare or angular as the first-gen car, nor did it have an outrageous V8 or V10 power plant like the E39 or E60. But BMW did make a Touring version of the E34, cementing it as the first M wagon ever. Less than 1000 examples of the E34 M5 Touring exist, and this dealer is asking seriously absurd money for one.
Enthusiast Auto Group, the same Ohio-based used BMW dealer that brought us this $150,000 E39, is back with another seemingly perfect M5 for sale. What makes special is—yep, you guessed it—the paint. According to the dealer, this car is one of two Santorin Blue Tourings produced during its short 891-car production run.
This fact, aligned with the car's more desirable body style, larger 3.8-liter straight-six engine, and later six-speed manual transmission, start to explain the exuberant $129,990 asking price. Plus, it's not much more than what that ultra-rare "Elekta" M5 Touring sold for back in April.
But, considering this 24-year-old, 96,000-mile car is about $34,000 more than a brand new Panamera Sport Turismo, we'd have a hard time paying that much. However, for those seeking the most unique M car out there, this is M5 Touring might be the one.
