1987 745i M88 For Sale

Rare South African built 745i. Was the only 7 Series manufactured using the legendary M88 motor as used in the M1 racer and E28 M5. Due to the steering configuration for right hand drive, BMW South Africa could not launch a turbo version 745i and so they opted to hand build using the M88/ 3 engines.

Only 209 of these were ever built with very limited numbers still on the road. Most of them became motor donors in the 90's! Indications are that less then 30 have survived.

The car is completely original, in very good condition. Matching VIN and Engine numbers from factory, accident free, rust free, has original service book and partial service history.

Leather all round in good condition, front seats slightly scuffed and rear seats immaculate. Has original and complete tool kit but medical kit is missing.

Has factory original mag wheels although the spare wheel is missing. All electrics, aircon, radio, windows etc working.

Overall a very neat, 100% original, unmolested and unmodified car.

The car was used by Car Magazine for the write up on the launch of the BMW M7 here in South Africa July 2017
