BMW M history
BMW M5 E34 Touring
The BMW M5 E34 Touring was the first ever Touring developed by the BMW Motorsport. It was based on the M5 E34 Sedan but it offered a larger load capacity and if you like an even greater degree of exclusivity: only 891 were built. The M5 E34 Touring was introduced in 1992 and was available only with the S38 B38 engine. All the mechanical components were shared with the M5 E34 Sedan versions, made from late 1991 until 1995.

E34 M5 Touring "Elekta" edition
At the request of several Italian BMW dealers, a limited edition of 20 E34 M5 Touring "Elekta" editions was produced by BMW Individual exclusively for the Italian market in June and July of 1995. These were offered in a choice of two unique color schemes: Sterling Silver metallic (244) with a Marine Blue Nappa leather interior and matching carpeting or British Racing Green (312) with a Hazlenut Nappa leather interior and Mexico Green carpeting. Both schemes also included a black leather dashboard and door tops, but not the leather A-pillar trim, sun visors and Alcantara headliner normally fitted to E34 M5s with the Complete leather option. In addition to a special storage net in the passenger-side footwell, all of these Tourings were further equipped with the three-spoke steering wheel, Shadowline trim, roof rails, dual power sunroof, power front seats with driver-side memory, auto-dimming interior mirror, radio preparation, hi-fi speaker system, headlight washers and automatic climate control with automatic air recirculation. Some examples were also fitted with a special metal shift knob insert inscribed with "Elekta" and each unique car number in the edition of 20.
