Chris Harris Shows Off His Own 1986 E28 M5 Sedan

26-years-young and still arguably the best of the super-quick sedans ever made.

With the M Division celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, Chris Harris has plans to get behind the wheel of their best productions, starting with his very own 1986 E28 M5 Sedan.

We all know he's passionate about most cars, but never has he been so emotional than when talking about his pride and joy. At launch in 1984/85, claimed performance was 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds and 0-100mph in 14.5 seconds, which at the time was astonishing for a sedan. In fact, only a Porsche Carrera could match it. Such a car - a comfortable saloon boasting leather electric seats, loads of space, and a huge boot, with a 3.5-liter straight-six good for 286hp and 251lb-ft of torque - hadn't previously existed and was simply a 'brilliant recipe for a car.' Even today Harris says 'it still feels genuinely quick,' and who are we to argue?
