This classic E28 5-series sedan has a sporty “sharknose” hood, kidney grilles surrounded with chrome, and rounded headlamps set within the black horizontal slats of the grille. Amber turn signals are placed on the black impact bumper, and BMW badges feature on the hood and trunk lid. The mirrors are body coloured and the laminated windshield and windows have chrome bezels. Black body side mouldings and a sharp character line beneath the black door handles run the length of the car.


Bar shaped taillights are set within chrome bezels beneath 528E chrome script. The car rides on silver BBS aluminium alloy wheels equipped with anti-lock brakes, a first for the 5-series line of cars. Dual exhaust tips are mounted at the centre rear. The body of the E28 is self-supporting, being welded to the body platform.


Inside the cabin, seating for four is upholstered in champagne velour cloth with vinyl sides and piping. The dash and doors are grey with armrests.

The centre console angles toward the driver and contains air conditioning controls and a factory radio. The power window switches are situated on the surround of a shifter with resin-coated BMW badging.

A three-spoke BMW badged steering wheel comes with a leather cover and fronts a 220 km/hr speedometer and a 7K rpm tachometer. The 528e is further equipped with cruise control, a trip computer, and check control lights on the instrumentation panel.


The BMW 528e is powered by a 2.7-liter M20 inline-six cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed Getrag manual transmission driving the rear wheels. The M20 engine found in the E28 5-series is rated at 127 horsepower at 4,250 rpm and 177 lb-ft of torque at 3,250 when new.
