  • 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 (as it then was) and intended as flagships for the company's advanced technology, the first of these multi-cylinder sports coupés arrived in 1989. Introduced in October 1992, the top-of-the-range 850CSi boasted an extensively modified 5.6-litre V12 engine carrying the legend 'Powered by M' - a reference to BMW's high-performance division. As one would expect of a range-topping BMW, build quality was exemplary. Although now out of production for 20 years, 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.

    Supplied new in Germany by BMW Niederlassung, München, this 850CSi is one of only 1,510 examples sold worldwide. Currently displaying a total of 102,114km on the odometer, the BMW is described by the vendor as in either good or very good condition in every department, its engine starting easily and emitting no smoke. Accompanying documentation consists of the owner's handbook, stamped service book, and sundry invoices. Previously registered in France, the car is currently registered in the UK and comes with a V5C document.

    Suite à l'abandon de la très appréciée série 6, BMW monta en gamme avec sa remplaçante, la série 8. Développée par la division BMW Motorsport (comme c'était alors le cas) et destiné à être le porte-drapeau de la l'innovante technologie de la marque, le premier de ces coupés sportifs multicylindres arriva en 1989. Présenté en octobre 1992, le haut de gamme 850 CSi faisait appel à un moteur V12 5,6 litres profondément modifié portant la légendaire mention « Powered by M » - une référence à la division haute performance de BMW. Comme on pouvait s'y attendre sur une BMW haut de gamme, la qualité de construction était exemplaire. Bien que n'étant plus produite depuis 20 ans, la série 8 a reçu des lignes aux proportions classiques, sous estimées, qui ont bien résisté aux outrages du temps et cette magnifique et exclusive gran turismo parait aujourd'hui encore moderne.

    Livrée neuve en Allemagne par BMW Niederlassung, de Munich, cette 850 CSi est l'un des 1 510 exemplaires vendus dans le monde. Affichant actuellement un total de 102 114 km au compteur, la BMW est décrite par le vendeur comme en bon, voire très bon état sous tous ses aspects, son moteur démarre facilement et n'émet aucune fumée. La documentation fournie comprend le manuel du propriétaire, son carnet d'entretien tamponné et diverses factures. Initialement immatriculée en France, la voiture est actuellement immatriculée au Royaume-Uni et vendue avec ses papiers V5C.
