This was the third generation of the BMW 5 Series. Sold from February 1988 to 1996, its successor was the E39 type. The upper-middle class car designed by Claus Luthe and Ercole Spada placed itself in a good position on the automotive market. Its strong lines and aerodynamics made it a comfortable and stable vehicle. The car far exceeds all safety standards for its time.
This superb 6-cylinder BMW 535I develops 211 horsepower, which gives it great performance for a car weighing over 1.5 tons. With a length of 472cm, a width of 175cm, and a height of 141cm, this gorgeous 5-seater was one of the most beautiful cars of 1988.
