1996 BMW 750iL

Have a lot of enemies? Live in a really bad neighborhood? Hang out with known undesirables? Or just generally paranoid? Then look no further, we have found your car. This is certainly something you don’t see every day, a fully armored, long wheelbase, V12, 7-series. These cars were pretty rare in the US market, and were mainly reserved for the wealthy, with an original MSRP of just under $100K.

If you were the member of the 1% that made their money by stepping on a few toes, the full armor treatment was a must. Judging by the list of previous owners, I’m really surprised that this car has not actually seen fire. The lack of bullet wounds on this car may be attributed to the 5.4L V12 that made 322 bhp and 361 lb/ft of torque getting this land yacht to safety. No matter what your motivations, or social situation, this black fortress is a cool way to act like a boss.

Year: 1996
Model: 750iL
Engine: 5.4 liter V12
Transmission: 5-speed automatic
Mileage: 125,000 mi
Price: $5,800

This car is immaculate. Car fax will tell you this car was owned by Ronald McDonald Corp. Then the CIA out of Langley, VA. Have service records. Car is black. Sunroof. Fully loaded. Leather heated interior. Black. Low miles. I hate to sell but need the money asap. So price is firm. Car is classified as armoured limousine which makes it 4 inches longer I was told. Cannot upload pics but car is a beauty. BBS rims. Have original tail lights but led lights are on the car now. Looks sharper!!

I can send pics via text or email. Call if serious. 919 618 5177 Also for more info and yes it is really bullet proof! Look at windows!!Or can give VIN for car fax for you. Has roll up shades, back roll up is temperamental meaning works when it wants to, that will need to be fixed. Nice car. OMG, we hate to sell.

From the description, it sounds like this car has the usual quirks of a 16 year old car. The asking price on this car is on par with that of a well kept 750iL, so you’re basically getting the armor package for free!  At $5,800 you can’t ask for more than that, except maybe an armed driver to go along with it.

Wild and Wide: 1988 BMW 750iL “M7” for sale

As long as there have been ///M cars from BMW, there have been rumors, hopes and dreams of a 7-series worked over by BMW’s performance division. As BMW follows Audi and Mercedes towards racecar-ing every model possible, an M7 may be closer than ever before – but I’m not going to hold my breath.

Some people aren’t willing to wait for BMW to finally release an M7. Some people know they have what it takes to make an M7 of their OWN. Some people are pretty sure that a body kit makes an ///M car. Today’s seller is one of those people, combining a Koenig body kit and some badges to turn an E31 750iL into… something different. It’s actually pretty awesome from the rear, but from the side and front the lines get all mixed up and make me dizzy and nauseous. It DOES have a V12, so there’s some performance cred there, but open the hood and the filth and duct tape will quickly make you wish for something more maintainable.

Selling a 1988 BMW 750IL with ///M7 wide body made by KOEING. The car comes with 112,180 original miles. The car is V12. The title is clear and never had any problems. If you want I can take it to the local dealer and let them inspect everything once again but you will have to pay for that. The car was just inspected by NEW YORK STATE Inspection and I have paperwork for it. The kit was ordered originally from Germany. It cost $8,500 USD and also comes with the 19″ BMW 750 wheels which there are 245/35/19 from and rear 305/35/19 at cost $2,200 USD. There was exhaust replaced from cutback at cost $1,600 USD and the list goes on. The interior and the leather is in very good condition. There is a cut in the rear seat about 1 inch long but easy fix.!! My Loss your Gain. The paint is not 100% The car is a head turner!!

Dont call me and waist my time please!!

Willing to trade for “2003 and up Silverado 2500 ONLY!!!!!!!!

Priced to sell at $5,000, this seller is avoiding the usual trap of adding up what he spent ($11,300 just in the kit, wheels and exhaust!). This scares me even more. Someone with as questionable taste does not seem like the same person to set reasonable prices; he probably knows needs to get rid of this car. Unless you realllllly like widebodies, don’t “waist” your time.

1994 BMW 850CSi

One of my favorite grand touring coupes, the 850CSi is the rarest of the E31 8-series cars with only 225 making it to North America. The 850CSi was the top of the heap performance wise, with the 375 bhp 5.6l V12, and a 6 speed manual gearbox, these cars shot to 60mph in the mid 5 second range, these cars were essentially the failed M8 project in plain clothes.

This black beauty for sale in Lebanon, Tennessee is a well cared for example of the quintessential ’90s grand tourer.

1994 BMW 8-Series 850CSi on eBay

passfront

I am selling my 1994 850csi BMW serial # 00021, one of the lowest serial numbered 850csi in existence. This car has been inside my commercial building and is driven maybe 2 times per month. It is in excellent condition with all services kept up to date along with a new clutch installed last year with only 200 miles on it. It is very reliable mechanically and physically in great shape. This car has been pampered and needs a person who will treat it as such. This car is all original inside and out and never been wrecked or painted on. The lowest first runs on the assembly line and the last runs are the more collectable in value. The car is soon to be in the antique category and will be highly appreciated by collectors. This car is sold as is with no warranties implied. Car will be for sale locally, therefore I reserve the right to end auction early if sold prior to eBay auction ending! This car shows extremely well for an 18 year old original car! Remember this is not a new car and does have normal age and wear on it!  Thanks and good luck on a great car!

PS. I have had many questions about the head liner in this car, it is perfect which I have provided pictures! Also for those who have asked about this car having a cassette player, the multiple disc CD player is located in the trunk from the factory which I have provided pictures, everything works fine! The tires have very little wear on them.

This is the car that myself and many others lusted over in the ’90s. Even if it was a sled, and did 0-60 in 12.8 seconds, it wouldn’t have mattered as it’s one of the most beautiful cars BMW has ever produced. I’m amazed to see an 850CSi for sale in this shape, as they are rare to begin with. Add in the fact that it only has 54K miles, and suddenly the $54,995 price tag almost seems reasonable…I said almost. Putting all of the lust aside, and the rarity aside, my judgement is clearing up, and the $54K price tag seems a little bit in the stratosphere. After looking in to prices, and what these are selling for, I believe that the right BMW geek with deep pockets will want to snatch this up, however I would love to see a price tag in the $35K to $40K range. That is still way above market value, but reasonable considering the rarity and condition of this car. As always with cars like this, it’s not like you can just go to the dealer and grab one. When the opportunity presents itself, you have to pay if you want to play.

1991 BMW 850i

Developed as an exercise in styling, technology and power, the BMW 8 series is by far one of the most beautiful cars that BMW has ever developed. Boasting cutting-edge features like keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, power tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, and windows that automatically closed at high speeds, the 8 series was the benchmark for BMW luxury, second only to the 7 series.

The advancements didn’t stop with the creature comforts. The 8501 featured a 5 liter V12, and featured industry’s first drive-by-systems, and a 6-speed gear box, resulted in 296bhp, and runs to 60 in just over 6 seconds, not a bad feat for a car weighing in at slightly less than the 7 series.

Despite all of the technology and performance packed in to the sexy body of the 850i, it wasn’t exactly a home run for BMW, likely due to the over $100K MSRP. Over the years the 8 series has been something of beauty to stare at, any something only the few brave souls venture to own.

This Sterling Silver over grey 850i for sale in Denver, Colorado is a pristine example of one of BMWs finest GT cars.

If you bid please be prepared to purchase, a $1000.o0 deposit will be due within 24 hours of auction end. And full payment within 5 days of auction end.

To say a car like this is a poodle is an understatement; cars like this were developed to prove a point with regards to technology, and power.  When BMW was developing this car, reliability and cost of ownership certainly never entered the equation; besides if maintenance is your concern with buying this car, then maybe you just don’t get it.

As far as the 8 series goes this would be what I look for, if in the market. With 11,607 miles, one owner and all of the right aftermarket upgrades, this car has certainly lived the high life compared to many others you’ll find for sale. While certainly not the most desirable of the 8 series, this 850i offers the v12, and rare 6 speed making it a true drivers GT car.

The pricing on these cars tend to be all over the place, but an example like this has to fetch top dollar. All things considered, I would put this car at about $22,000, but I’m willing to bet the reserve for car this clean is in the $25,000-$30,000 range, which is way too high. We’ll see how this pans out in just a few days.

Living Large: Mercedes-Benz CL65 with Renntech

Today’s CL65 doesn’t require quite as large a bank account as the Black Series featured earlier this week, but it’s an even larger 2-door coupe housing the beastly twin-turbo V12. Putting out a *mere* 621hp before the Renntech ECU upgrade, the biggest of Mercedes coupes exemplifies a velvet-covered hammer. Pushing any 2-metric-ton car to 60 in 4 seconds flat sounds terrifying, though I have to imagine it’s deceptively comfortable in heated-cooled-infinitely-adjustable seats while looking through nightvision. The CL definitely targets a different audience than the Black Series, but isn’t actually that far off for less than 50% of the price. You could get a Mustang or GTR with this much horsepower for something similar to the $108k asking price, but would your butt be vibrating in plush, quilted leather with every conceivable option ever offered on a car? I don’t think so.

2008 Mercedes-Benz CL65 with Renntech upgrades on eBay


No real description from the dealer other than the astonishing litany of options, but the pictures say it all. Big, fast, and luxurious. I’d pass on the extra Renntech badging as it’s beginning to look like sponsors on a lowered Acura, except these sponsors spell 650+ horsepower. I can think of different ways to spend $100k on cars, but if I was looking to have a big max coupe, I’d take this beast all day over a Bentley.

1993 BMW ItalDesign Nazca

The M1 left a lasting impression on BMW. In 2008, BMW rolled out the M1 Homage Concept at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este near Lake Como in Italy and it got people wondering whether BMW will dabble in the supercar market once again. Back in the 1990s, there was similar chatter after a concept designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro hit the scene with a mid mounted 5.0 liter V12. With only three prototypes built, it certainly isn’t every day you see a Nazca up for sale. This particular one for sale in New Zealand is advertised as a 1993 model and has an Alpina tuned V12 producing 379 horsepower. Three versions were produced, including a Spyder in 1993, this was a departure from the usual one-off mentality that surrounds concept vehicles.

1993 BMW ItalDesign Nazca

One of only 3 ever Produced. Design styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro. BMW 5.7 litre Alpina V12 Engine (Top Speed 203 mph). Blue with Blue Leather. Right Hand Drive. 5 Speed Manual. Unregistered, still new with factory Delivery Kms Only

While this car is advertised as a 1993 model, it is modeled after the 1991 M12 version of the Nazca. This is because this particular example was manufactured by Italdesign for the Sultan of Brunei, who specified the higher horsepower Alpina V12. The pictures don’t do this vehicle justice, as it shows a lot of dust and dirt on the car. I would hope for a better presentation when spending $1.1 million USD on a vehicle. Personally, I would be surprised if this car eventually sells at that price, given the amount of supercar that buys these days (ahem Veyron).

1989 BMW 750iL with 3,000 miles

Update 5.20.2012: First posted in January, the buy-it-now has dropped from nearly $50k to just under $20k. Links updated. -dc

The E32 7 series was BMW’s major push to compete head to head with Mercedes-Benz. Not only did this car debut BMWs updated design language that would carry it into the 1990s, but it was a full six years ahead of the Mercedes-Benz S class in offering a V12 engine. The 5.0 liter V12 offered up 300 horsepower and was enough to catapult this über sedan to 60 miles an hour in 7.4 seconds. These V12 models are less common than their six and eight cylinder siblings, mainly due to their initial purchase price, fuel economy and running costs. Clean, low mileage E32s of any sort are not very common, and I was stunned to stumble across this one with an almost unbelievable 3,000 miles on the clock.

1989 BMW 750iL on eBay

Garage Kept, Still Smells Like New!

This is yet another example of a seller that couldn’t be bothered to write up a proper description, let alone get the cylinder count on the vehicle right. I’m pretty certain from looking over the vehicle history report and pictures that this is the real deal and we have a 3,000 mile, one owner E32 on our hands. Given this car is residing in Boca Raton, it was more than likely owned by an elderly person who either had a vacation home in Florida or became ill and ceased driving. Even though it looks nice, this could potentially be a ticking time bomb in terms of maintenance, with hoses, belts and tires to be the least of the new owners worries. This is a gorgeous sedan and a milestone car in BMW’s history, but it would almost certainly be better if it had higher mileage and evidence of regular exercise. This is a car for someone with deep pockets or the most dedicated BMW enthusiast. If you are in the market for an E32, the later 740i/740iL with its V8 engine is the better buy and more economical choice.

George Foreman’s 2005 BMW 760Li Hits The Market

Boy oh boy, you have to sell a lot of grills to afford a car like this.

The 7 Series cars have never been my bag, too big and too soft for my liking.  But, after driving a ’10 750Li X Drive this week I am starting to appreciate them more.  It may be that I am getting older with my creaking bones appreciating the plush ride the 7 Series provides.  While that may be I am certain I would run into something, or worse yet someone while I fuss with the plethora of gadgets laid out in the most un-ergonomic of ways.

Here we have the biggest of the lot driven by the big man himself for a scant 12k miles.

2005 BMW 760Li:

From the seller –

“Your looking at a vehicle previously owned by the professional boxer George Foreman. This 2005 BMW 760Li is extremely clean inside and out and was rarely driven and always kept in an air conditioned warehouse. On a scale from 1-10 I give this bad boy a 9.8!! Not only does it look great it’s loaded out with Navigation, Rear-Entertainment, Comfort Access, heated & cooled seats, Park distance control, Soft-Close doors, 19 wheels, heated steering wheel and a ton of more upgrades.”

Great looking car, if you are looking for a newer 7 Series but don’t want to fork over $100k for a new one this could be a nice option.  I prefer the 12cyl car to the twin turbo charged 8cyl cars but you really can’t go wrong with either.

The previous ownership does not really do much for the value for this BMW, unless you are a boxing buff.  In which case I have a used ’85 Eldorado that was once owned by Buster Douglas that I can sell you.

With that the $42k buy it now is ambitious, but I have to think a price in the $37k range would be more than fair.  Currently bidding is up to $25.6k with four days left in the auction.

1998 Mercedes-Benz S600 with 10,000 miles

This car is sure to set off some comment chatter. There’s been a lot of talk about what it takes to maintain an upper end German luxury car and whether it is worth it in the end. With the W126 S class rising in popularity amongst collectors, the W140 S class has now entered the gray area of not quite collectable but too old to be on most used car buyers’ radar. This example of the flagship S600 has the rare four seat option and has covered a mere 10,000 miles.

1998 Mercedes-Benz S600 on Hemmings Motor News

1998 Mercedes-Benz S600 V12

Another gorgeous Mercedes with just 10,000 miles – everything is in brand new condition
and this too was stored in a heated storage facility for many years. The color combination
is a stunning “champagne beige” color both inside and out. The car has every option available.
Even the carpet looks as though no one has ever stepped foot in the car. You can own this gorgeous car for a fraction of the cost to buy one new.

Offered at $45,000

The asking price of $45,000 is way off the map from anything I’ve seen in terms of W140 values, but this could quite possibly be the lowest mileage S600 available, as only a few hundred were made for the 1998 model year. While $45,000 is a mere fraction of the original $132,000 list price, I could not see this car pulling more than $25,000. The old rule of Mercedes sedans (with exception of some AMG models) not pulling as much on resale as coupes and convertibles is in effect here.

One must keep in mind the complexity of the W140 versus its predecessor, the W126. From the oil and fuel consumption to complex features such as a rear view mirror that is electronically actuated, this is neither an easy or cheap car in terms of upkeep.

1991 BMW 850i 6 speed

I’m always at a loss to figure out why the BMW 8 series never caught on. It was more practical than the Z8 halo car that succeeded it and a tad more butch than the E24 6 series which it followed. No one seemed to care though during it’s decade long run. As a result, good, clean examples can be had for pennies on the dollar. Such as this example in Illinois.

Only 72,909 Actual Miles!

Exterior…

For Being Over 20 Years Old, This Car Is In Exceptional Condition! The Depth Of The Black Paint Appears As It Would Have When It Was New! The Car Is Very Straight Down The Sides, No Major Door Dings Etc. The Paint Has Minor Blemishes And Scuffs As Any 21 Year Old Car Will Have… Nothing Major! Just Typical Wear And Tear…

Interior…

The Leather Interior Is Very Nice, Shows Some Minor Wear From Age, But As You Can See By The Pictures It Still Looks Very Nice!

Mechanicals…

The Car Has Been Meticulously Maintained By Its One Owner! This Car Speaks For Itself When You Drive It! No Squeaks And Rattles! This Is A True Quality European Collector Car!

This 8er strikes a good balance for me in not being too much of a garage queen yet hasn’t been overly worn out. The leather could use some conditioning inside, along with a good buffing of the black paintwork. I’d say if someone could snag this for anywhere between $11k and $14k, it would be well bought and a lot of car for the money.

Top Gear recently did a retrospective of V12 coupes and presenter Richard Hammond saw fit to pick up a lower mileage 850Ci coupe:
