Back in 2015, we showed you a video of a 1993 E34-generation BMW M5 going head-to-head on a runway with a Bugatti Veyron 16.4, one of the fastest cars on earth. Amazingly, the M5 was able to defeat the Veyron in a rolling drag race, earning it legendary status throughout the online car world. Now, that M5 is for sale. You should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
Though it doesn't look like much from 20 feet away (the only things that set it apart are the wheels, a massive front-mounted intercooler, and a giant bulge in the hood), trust us, this car is packing some serious firepower. The factory BMW S38 straight-six engine seems to have been fully rebuilt to handle a massive amount of boost, as evidenced by the watermelon-sized Borg Warner turbocharger stuffed under the hood. Sadly, the ad doesn't specify the full extent of the modifications.
If you're still not convinced, please, watch the original video of the car facing off with the Veyron. It's worth the watch, especially with the sound on.
The car is currently in Sweden with an asking price of 350,000 Swedish Krona (around $39,000 US at current exchange rates). Considering the climbing resale prices of second-gen BMW M5s these days, we'd say this is a pretty good deal, especially considering the amount of work put into it. If you're willing to go through the trouble of importing into the States, you'll be laying down runway records in no time. If you can get it to hook up, that is.
