Yes, you read that right. Up for sale in it's home country, you can buy this autobahn storming Bavarian sports sedan with absolutely no kilometers on the clock and no registration. The ad, found on Car and Classic doesn't give much details about the M5 but it suggests that this may have been a show car on a German BMW dealership's floor.
The E34 M5 is a favourite among BMW enthusiasts. It is the last of the hand built M5's before BMW started producing them on the same line as the standard 5-series. The engine, a 3.5 litre straight six (or perhaps a 3.8L depending on this car's build date), was also hand built by the M GmbH crew.
Sounds great, right? More, including how much this will cost you, after the jump.

If you're about to call your bank thinking you might be able to snag this classic for cheap, you might want to put down the phone and sit down for this. This "brand new" M5 will cost you a whopping $104,903 Canadian dollars (£65,000).
We can only assume that with zero on the odometer, this car's been sitting so expect to replace any component with rubber on it as it's probably dried, cracked and crumbling right now. Oddly enough, this car also doesn't have the M-tech "throwing star" wheels that M5s of this vintage came with. Then again, aside from some dust, the bodywork and engine look tip-top and of course, there's the part where there are absolutely no kilometres on it.
Finding an E34 M5 on our side of the pond is pretty rare. According to the BMW M Registry, only 1,485 of these cars were produced for North America, with a measly 193 made specifically for Canada. We got a few minor features and options, such as standard heated seats and headlight washers, but nothing spectacular. They made up for that later with the M540i, built only for the Canadian market.
