1988-1995 BMW M5 (E34) specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
The E34 generation took the M5 squarely into the 1990s, thanks to substantially-modernised styling, and a smooth new interior. The fabulous in-line six received various modifications to boost power to 315bhp, pushing the top speed to a limited 155mph. King of the hill from the moment it was launched, rivals struggled to match the M5’s intimacy, balance and pace. Further improved in 1994, when the 3.5-litre engine’s output was raised to 340bhp, although top speed remained the same, unless the owner removed the limiter.
