1994 BMW 850CSi

3

Following on to the Mercedes-Benz SL600 Silver Arrow that Andy featured yesterday, here’s an equally rare German flagship from the 1990s: the BMW 850CSI. While a BMW M8 was never officially produced, if you wanted your 8 series coupe with a bit of M flavor this was as close as you were going to get. The E31 8 series wasn’t as popular as its predecessor, the E24 6 series. A little over 30,000 E31s were manufactured in comparison to the longer production run of the E24, which saw over 86,000 examples produced. Out of those 30,000 8 series, only 1,510 were the model you see here. With an increase in capacity to 5.6 liters, the 850CSi cranked out 375 horsepower and was mated exclusively to a 6-speed manual gearbox. With uprated brakes, suspension and Style 21 throwing star alloys, this was a fetching package. This example for sale in North Carolina has yet to cross the 30,000 mile mark, good for those seeking a collector piece.

Values of the 8 series in general have been climbing, but prices for the 850CSi have skyrocketed. These cars are solidly in the same territory as other GTs of the era, most notably one of this car’s main competitors, the 928GTS. We’ve seen only a few of these exclusive 8s pass through our Hammertime sale archive in the last two years, both having around 100,000 miles and settling in around $30,000. This 850CSi is certainly more special given its light usage, but does that warrant six figures? In a world where a 1988 M6 can bring $90,000, maybe the price here isn’t so crazy after all.

  1. I could do without the wood kit. Very nice example otherwise. There is precedent for this price. A local dealer sold a red one with similar mileage for close to 100k. Went to the middle east supposedly.

  2. Eurotrash, the 850CSi came with an extended “Yew” wood trim kit. Other wood was available in non-US market cars, but what you see here came standard on all US bound 850CSi models.

    What happened to my comment you’re responding to?

  4. @ Eurotrash, there was an error on the site. I’m working to see if I can recover it.
