From the factory, the top model of the BMW 5 Series was the M5 with M88/3 straight-six and 286 hp and 340 NM torque. But this one E28 is significantly stronger. It's the vehicle of "Matt" who stripped the rusted-out 1985 sports sedan of its 2,0-litre straight-six (M20B20) engine and a 2,5 liter unit installed from a 3 Series E36. He then has the engine on 3-liter capacity extended and moreover with one turbocharger stocked. Of course, a lot of specially made parts were required for the new hardware to function smoothly, but the conversion was successful in the end. In addition to the engine gave a new one Stainless-steel sport exhaust system and Five-speed ZF transmission from a 328i and the rear of a 535i with the stronger drive shafts and wishbones.

However, the 5 Series is already completely new lacquered and in the interior are a few E34 parts and something Tuning Accessories to see.
