German cars are know as being exact in their engineering, and even the model designation of the turbocharged E23 7 series takes this mantra to heart. This particular 745i does not, in fact, have a 4.5 liter inline-6 as suggested by the badge on the trunk. Rather, it designates that the turbocharged powerplant under the hood has 1.4 times the power output of the normally aspirated unit it is based on. These E23 7 series sedans had the same aggressive front snout as the beloved E24 6 series and moved the BMW game forward in terms of technology, with service interval indicators, anti-lock brakes and climate control systems appearing during the production run. The 745i Turbo was offered in North America between 1979 and 1986, first with a 3.2 liter inline six and then upgraded to the 3.4 unit that we see here. This example for sale in Georgia is a Euro market model that has the optional water buffalo leather, lending quite a unique air to the interior.

1985 BMW 745i Euro Turbo.
71k original miles.
Fully loaded; every possible option available in 1985 (including active suspension, ABS, full power buffalo leather interior…even the headrests and rear seats are power operated!)
Genuine BBS RS 16×8 et11 wheels all around with 225/50 front and 245/45 rear tires. Overall this car looks and runs excellent, but is by no means showroom; has a few scratches and dents as expected of a 29 year old car. Please study pictures carefully (more pictures are available, but eBay has a 24 picture limit)
Shipping is the full responsibility of the buyer, but we do have connections for reasonable shipping anywhere. Please ask any and all questions and be financially prepared PRIOR to bidding. Thank you.
We may get close to around the $6,000 to $7,000 mark on this one. With E24 prices on the rise, if you want a similar look, these E23s are a BMW that have gone a bit unnoticed for a while. Perfect for the collector on a budget who wants to roll a bit incognito.
