Sweet E28 M5

Today, at work, a 1985 E28 M5 came in for service. It was an unbelievably awesome car. Not only was at in pristine condition, but it had been modified like mad. The engine was bored out to 3.9L and produces 400HP. It had huge calipers with drilled rotors. 2 inch dual exhaust. It had a lot of other things that I cannot remember, but still looked completely stock.

The plates were from California, and apparently only 2 of them exist in the world. It was originally shown at an Autoshow in Germany.

If its still there tomorrow, I'll take pics....

No no, I don't mean there are only two E28 M5's. I'm not entirely clear on this one's history but, it was originally shown at an autoshow in Germany when it came out. There are only two like this. It might have to do with the colour, as it is light grey. Basically what I got was information being thrown around the shop, along with oohs and ahhs. Its owned by some rich guy from California. The engine work costed more than $35,000 USD.

Oh and my cell phone camera has decided not to work. So no pics, sorry...
