Chris Harris speaks to us about his love story with the BMW M5 original [video]

BMW M5 is today the standard of the sports sedan high-performance. But the monumental sedan 600 HP it is today would be nothing without his great-grandfather, the veteran BMW M5 E28. It was the first BMW Motorsport street to be released after the experiment that was the spectacular M1. When it went on sale in 1984 astonished the world with its fascinating engine of 286 HP, a power that then impressed even more than that of a Bugatti Veyron. And Chris Harris fell in love with. So much so, that it has had to buy one.

In 1984, a sedan with 286 HP was the equivalent of a suv with 350 HP today…

Chris Harris is a lucky man, because these BMW M5 E28 are today’s pieces are already highly valued by the market, and it is almost impossible to find a unit for less than 20,000 euros. çAdquirió your unit for a little more than 9,000 pounds, a few years ago in Great Britain. The video of Chris Harris that you’re going to see data of 2012, so that it may be known to some of you. But I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to see some of his early work, and to pay a small tribute to one of my BMW favorites of all time, at the level of the delicious M6 in the year 1986, also known as M635CIf.

With the M6 shares a engine 3.5-liter six-cylinder in-line, in essence, almost identical to the propeller that moved in the bowels of the BMW M1. With a weight of only 1.465 kg in vacuum and tires only 225 mm of section, the BMW M5 was able to do the 0 to 100 km/h in just over six seconds, achieving a top speed of 251 km/h. It was then the sedan the fastest in the planet and also one of the most fun and balanced driving. If I don’t créeis, give the play to be pleasantly impressed.
