The BMW 8 series is one of those rare instances where low production doesn’t necessarily mean high cost, discounting the 850CSi, of course. This was the second BMW to receive the V12 engine, debuting in 1990 with the option of a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual gearbox. It combined a wedge shape with a pillarless profile and sleek, low-rise concealed headlamps. While E31s like this 850Ci for sale in Minnesota are fairly affordable when it comes to big German coupes, everyone knows you have to be committed to endure the high running costs. Someone has to save these twelve cylinder wonders, though.

We haven’t seen many E31s sell on GCFSB. While the 850CSi is solidly passing the $30,000 mark and upward, the more luxury oriented variants are hovering in the $15,000 to $20,000 range, provided they are in good condition with low mileage. The starting bid on this car isn’t terrible, but doesn’t leave much room for those to get in at an attractive offer. We’ll keep an eye on this one to see if anyone bites. Considering there was only one 8 series and of those, less than 2,000 wore the 850Ci badge, these have the potential to become quite collectible over the coming years.
