Appears to be a sound story

Just that you'd need to be really wanting a 20j to fork out that money..Not saying it isnt worth it though, I think E34 M5's are gravely undervalued as it is, especially set off against E30 M3' or W124 E500e's

Lovely car, price isnt too bad considering mileage and the fact that its a 20 jahre.

The one for sale in Sweden was advertised for 20k.

500E's really hold their price well, but i was not impressed with the drive at all. Was about to buy one before I drove the M5, no comparison! But they do look great with a set of Brabus Monoblock III's!

Hey Ray,

I checked MP only yesterday and didn't find early in the evening, so the add is fresh from the press.

Nice find. I happen to know this car as the son of the current owner introduced himself on the German forum back in 2004. Needless to say that he provided the VIN to proove that it was a genuine 20 Jahre M, but in fact it isn't. This conclusion caused some grief, after which we lost track of it. Up untill now. Nevertheless it is closely related to the 20 Jahre M as it suposedly has been manufactured for the Dusseldorf car show in December 1991.

BTW: It's color is not Mugellorot, but Brilliant-rot (308).

The VIN on this one is GD62228. Built in 2/92 (20 Jahre Motorsport were all built in 10/92).

The Individual data says:

I don't read dutch very well, does the owner claim that it is a genuine 20 Jahre Motorsport? Or just a car similar to the 20J?

He claims that this is the real one.
Oh dear ......fair enough when it's an innocent mistake ......not so creditable when he actually knows otherwise !

It's amazing what the pursuit of money will lead some people to do !

We have gone thru all of this once before when the car was first introduced to the German E34 M5-forum in 2004. If it is -GD62228- (I need to check my records = I arrived back home only this morning at hrs 03.00 from a weeks holiday:cheers:) then it is a BMW-exhibition-car, built for the GENEVA-CAR-SHOW in March 1992 !!
Apparently the car was also used for the photo-sessions for the broschure-pictures of the "20 Jahre" > and that is why it has a 01/20-plague ??? or is
someone trying to pretend ??? either way = interesting car, although it is NOT
the real thing, still........lovelove

Obviously you didn't have the chance to read all your Emails, but I am already on to it.
