Ces véhicules mythiques et sportifs sortis dans les années 80/90 appelés “youngtimers” prennent une valeur certaine et ce à une vitesse étonnante depuis 5 ans environ. Mon collègue Allemand très au fait du marché et fan de BMW Motorsport m’a toujours répété de ne jamais vendre ma BMW M5 Touring. Jusqu’à présent je voyais celle-ci grimper progressivement en cote, cette tendance semblant s’accélérer gentiment mais là, à la lecture d’un article récent paru dans Road & Track envoyé justement par ce même collègue je reste interloqué….891 exemplaires au monde mais 120.000$…!!!! La dernière phrase de la personne qui a rédigé l’article parle d’elle même…

This Amazing BMW M5 Wagon Just Sold For $120,000
It’s one of only 20 “Elekta” specials built for the Italian market, and it’s in America.

So how rare is it? Well, only 891 E34-generation M5 Tourings were built, but only 209 of them featured the later 3.8-liter straight-six and six-speed gearbox. Of those 209, 20 “Elekta” models were built for the Italian market, towards the end of the E34’s life. This is the sixth Elekta built.

This one has a beautiful specification too, with the rare color combination of British Racing Green paint and a Hazelnut leather interior. Its 3.8-liter six-cylinder–the final evolution of the engine used in the legendary M1–produces 340 horsepower and uses six individual throttle bodies for right-now response.

Over the last decade or so, this M5 has been treated to new suspension, drivetrain, and steering parts to keep it factory fresh. It’s only driven 78,000 miles in its life, and it comes with near-complete service and maintenance records

This is an incredibly high price for an E34 M5, but again, BMW M cars don’t really get more special than this. It’s more money than the outgoing M5 cost new, but frankly, I know which one I’d rather own.
