THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Following the deletion of the much loved '6' series, BMW upped its game with the successor '8' series models. Developed by BMW's Motorsport division and intended as flagships for the company's advanced technology, the first of these multi-cylinder sports Coupes arrived in 1989 in the form of the 5.0-liter V12-powered 850Ci. The range was extended to include 5.4-liter V12 850CSi and 4.4-liter V8 840Ci models before production ceased in 1999. As one would expect of a top-of-the-range BMW, build quality was exemplary, the passenger compartment being virtually airtight, which necessitated the provision of an ingenious system that automatically dropped the windows slightly to facilitate door opening and closure. As well as stupendous performance - 0-60mph in around 6 seconds and an electronically limited maximum speed of 155mph - the '8' series offered the latest in suspension technology, featuring computerized monitoring and adjustment of damper settings. That safety had been of equal concern to its designers was reflected in the provision of body crumple zones, a rigid passenger cell, anti-lock brakes and driver/passenger airbags as standard. Although out of production for more than decade, the '8' series was blessed with classically proportioned, understated and essentially timeless styling that has not dated, and these beautiful and exclusive Gran Turismos still look modern today.

This 850CSi offered here left the BMW factory in October of 1994. It was one of 14 Orient Blue CSi examples shipped to North America and the 140th example of the 225 built for the North American market. It was first delivered to Arizona and then found its way to California with its second owner. In April of 2014, it was sold to its present custodian in the southeast.

The CSi benefited from greatly improved engine performance thanks to the M Division modifications carried out to its massive V12 power plant including lighter pistons, higher compression, and increased displacement. The summation of these changes brought the engine up to a potent 377hp which was quite formidable figure in the 1990s.

Today, this particular BMW has been carefully cared for. Since coming to the South East, it has been maintained by BMW specialist Korman BMW Autowerks in Greensboro, North Carolina. Today it presents in original order thanks to diligent care by its 3 owners. Rare, desirable and sporitng, this is a great car for weekend drives or for BMW car club events.
