Hi Brian.
Yes, this car apparently had a period of hard time many years ago. The then and now owner, presenting himself as a 'retired professional exotic car mechanic', i.e. the car having been in good hands (!!) also used the 'touring' to transport motor car engines from his shop to the freight terminals of trucking companies. I will send you an e-mail and a picture if I can find it.
However, based on the circumstances the car looks surprisingly nice and proper and there seems to be no good reason for you, not to rescue it, please do

I hope I can find an E34 touring lover to take care of it since I'm moving to a place where it wouldn't last long in the bumpy roads...

Hi there Flavio.
Hope you are doing fine in the new place with bumpy roads.
What happened to the BL01008 E34 M5touring ?
Is it still in Monaco or did it find a new home, if so,
could you tell us/me () where it go to ??

Cheers and have a good time with 'the bumpy roads'

There is no picture of the actual car in any of the articles. The pictures are ,nicked’ from the internet and
identified as above mentioned. It might be the story is correct in so far as a BMW V12 was tested in
an E34 M5touring (I have heard that rumor first time years ago), but the V12 from the McLaren F1 ??
and the car still exists ?? = a hidden secret for almost 25 years ??
Sorry guys, I have my doubts......

Top Gear's Chris Harris bought an E34 M5touring. His new
E34 M5touring is one of the early 3.6 liter cars.....etc.
Very well, congratulations Mr. Harris to E34 M5touring
ownership, you just bought either a replica car or an unique
E34 M5touring lacking it's original engine, really ???

All original factory E34 M5tourings are equipped with the BMW
(S38B38) 3.8 li engine,
power output 340 bhp ECE / 347 bhp DIN.
