General description :
Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando Florida is proud to offer this awesome and very rare 1991 BMW M5 for sale in our Orlando showroom. This 5 Series has been carefully maintained and has some serious get up and go. Powered by 3.5 Liter inline 6-cylinder engine mated to a quick shifting 5 speed transmission this car will launch off the line and handle like a champ. The engine was technically a mildly stroked derivation of the M1's M88 twin-cam I-6, but that engine was originally based on the M30 block that still powered the 1991 535i in single-cam guise, so the engines are clearly related, if less so than today's M550i and M5 mills. Thanks to improved fuel injection, a two-stage resonance supercharging intake manifold, and an increase in the redline versus the E28 M5 (from 6,800 to 7,200 rpm), the output increased from 252 hp/243 lb-ft in the E28 to 310 hp/265 lb-ft. Relative to the 535i's 208 hp, that power bump was greater than the price premium—49 percent, so, a bargain! Factory equipment includes; AC, AM FM Stereo, power windows, seats, steel sunroof, steering and brakes. Cruise control, and leather interior. This is the one you want to own. This BMW M5 is for sale in our Orlando Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at http://www.GatewayClassicCars.com. For additional information please call our knowledgeable staff at (407)771-2000 or email us at Orlando@GatewayClassicCars.com.

In the thirties, BMW produced on of the eras most elegant cars 327, which could be ordered as a coupe or cabriolet. In addition, they campaigned 328 successfully in sports car racing, including Mille Miglia where a number of aerodynamic specials were introduced.
Post war era, saw BMW almost bankrupt before rising to its current status as one of the leading premium brands.
