Chassis: WBSDC9305J2791178. 138,432 Miles. S38 Inline-Six. 5-Speed Transmission. Porsche GT2/Boxster S Brake. Roll Cage. Momo Racing Items. Recent Servicing. Private Party or Dealer: Private Party
This 1988 BMW M5 has been owned by the seller since 2010 and is now set up as a track car. It features an extensive custom roll cage, MOMO race bucket seats, and modified suspension and brakes. Completed at the factory on 5/7/1987, it was the 8th USA-spec M5 off the assembly line, and has been a Southern car since new.  Prior to being converted to a track car, this M5 was actually a preproduction code 0905 Special Inspection Car for BMW North America. It is believed to have been initially used as a press vehicle and the prior owner was a Honda Challenge racer.  The seller has continually serviced the car to keep it track ready while under his ownership, and it is now offered with a clean North Carolina title. A full windows out repaint was conducted in 2001 using factory colors at a cost of over $6,200. The body has worn multiple graphic patterns since, and some bare clear coat and paint spots have resulted from removing some graphics. There is a rust bubble noted on the lower driver-side B-pillar. The seller claims that it weigh around 3,091 pounds following their modifications. The interior features Momo Rookie competition seats, Momo five point harnesses, Momo aluminum race drilled pedals, a Momo Type 78 competition steering wheel, and an illuminated E36 M3 shift knob. The 8-point cage is custom-built by Kearney’s Motorsports and is welded to SCCA and World Challenge specs. A factory top dash is present and the lower dash has been deleted. The seller states that an OMP ECO foam fire suppressions system was installed to meet all SCCA, NASA, and FIA regulations. The S38 engine was rebuilt in 2001 by Porsche and BMW engine builder Dave Herman at Dulles International Motorsports at 128k miles at a cost of over $14,000. The entire engine was rebuilt with new pistons, crank, rods, heads, timing chains, titanium valve springs, and Schrick 282 Intake and 272 exhaust cams. Software is run by Turner/Conforti Chip. A cold air intake and BB Tri-flow exhaust with resonator and cat delete has also been installed. Engine has been religiously serviced every 1 or 2 track events. The transmission was also fully rebuilt in 3/2001 at 128k miles. In addition a UUC short shift kit and Quaife ATB race differential are installed. The seller notes that the third gear synchro will make noises under quick shifts. The 225/45 Hoosier race tires have been heat cycled a couple of times so new tires would be advised to maximize grip at the next track event. The seller has owned the car since 2012 and it is recorded  . Brakes are impressively upgraded with Movit/Porsche 340mm 993 GT2 brakes up front and Movit/Porsche 328mm Boxster S brakes at the rear. The suspension is set up in the style of the BMW Speed World Challenge Series M5s. Specifications include:
