The uber rare E34 M5 Touring was the world’s fastest wagon when it was introduced in 1992. It was BMW M Division’s first wagon, but at the same time the last hand built M car.

Its 3.8 liter straight six was also the largest displacement six-cylinder engine of BMW’s modern era. While none of these wagons were imported to North America, several have made their way across the pond since 1995 and have become a cult car among BMW Touring enthusiasts.

Capable of 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and available only with a manual transmission qualifies this M5 Touring as probably one of the rarest M5 around. And since only 891 cars were made in RHD, it is guaranteed to appreciate in value.

Today’s Super Bild black example is wearing the 18 inch forged M Parallel wheels which in my opinion are the best factory wheels BMW has ever placed on a Roundel badged car.

    THE rear wheels on this car is either non-original or photoshopped or something fishy. THe M-parallel does not look like that. The front on the other hand is exactly the M-parallel.
    the rear wheel spokes are too wide and they look flat. Weird looking wheel… could it be just a horrible picture distortion ?  The picture is really bad so I won’t be surprised.

      It’s the effect of the car being in motion. I have the M Parallel on my E38 Sport and these are definitely the correct wheels.

    camera effect maybe? One thing I noticed is that this touring does not have a hoffmeister kink. I never knew they didn’t have one! It looks good without it, but at the same time once you notice it, it looks weird without it.. looses a bit of that BMW look in all their cars.. nevertheless a great rare BMW!

       I agree. The E34 was a beautiful design that after 24 years of its release still looks stunning.  People with the 525i does not realize that and they ruin the cars to the ground. Timeless design and especially the wagon !
