Just noticed this for sale today for anyone looking for an M5, interesting colour and trim combination. I am sure Mfiver can shed more light on the car.
It is for sale on carandclassic.com no.19497.

Bayerische, thank you for posting this - a very unusual find indeed, from a source I wouldn't have looked at.

I telephoned the vendor this evening to discuss; it has been in his hands for about 7 years, which is quite long for a specialist car like this. The striking colour combination is certainly unique in the UK - the pearlescent white finish is by Glasurit and the same as that supplied on high-end Audi models in-period.

The red leather is also unusual in that it has white piping (this agrees with the option description) but the "Red leather steering wheel" does not, perhaps meaning that the car has either had a replacement wheel (the style is correct, though) or maybe that the option code has been changed by BMW since the car was built.

I'm unable to vouch for the cars' condition or provenance, having not seen it - but it can only be one car, as the description and visible options fit most closely with 1679048.....so in addition to the Special Paint and Special Upholstery, it has Satin Black Chrome, the M-Technic aerodynamic styling kit, the memory function for the drivers' seat and a glass panel sunshine roof.

Very 80's.....but an interesting project. I hope we will be able to keep tabs on this one!

Regards

Interesting Mfiver ......it seems that telephone is the communication form of choice . I sent the vendor an email asking several questions 2 days ago and have yet to receive a reply .....

Maybe I'll call him tomorrow.....3 E28 M5's would be nice !

Go on davidoli....... buy it,you know you want to, you would have a nice little threesome there and it would compliment the two black cars nicely. Let us know what you decide.

E28 M5 White with Red Leather

Does anybody know the whereabouts of this car now? I believe it could be a car that I knew when it was owned by the first keeper.
