While the BMW E31 isn’t a model that we feature constantly here on GCFSB, it’s certainly one that graces the pages on a regular basis. However, nearly all of the time we’re looking at the car that grabbed the headlines – the V12 engined derivatives that really brought BMW’s Grand Touring coupe more towards the jet set. However, quietly in 1993 BMW launched a more affordable and economic version of the 8-series when it planted the all-aluminum M60 V8 in the slanting nose. Perhaps enthusiasts overlooked it a bit because it wasn’t as powerful as the M70/73 or the S70, but to me the 840 was closer to the 635CSi that it replaced than the V12 model was. Like most of the end-of-the-run E24s, the 840 only came to the U.S. in automatic though, meaning less enthusiasts saw it as an exciting development. The 840Ci thereby became the red-headed stepchild of the E31 lineup – not exotic enough to grab the same headlines as the V12, but too expensive and not manual or powerful enough for the M crowd. Two decades on, though, the more rare to find 840Cis might just be a smart alternative for those interested in the awesome BMW GT:

1995 was the crossover year from the M60 4.0 to M62 4.4 liter motor and there was no indication in the listing of which motor powered, so I searched the VIN – which came up with some interesting listings. Depending on which site you believe, this car is for sale in either Massachusetts, New York or Pennsylvania for between $5,000 and $9,000. All seemed to agree, though, that this was a 4.0 and not the later 4.4 model. Horsepower between the two was the same, but the power curve of the 4.4 was a bit flatter and it had more torque. This car has some nice upgrades like the M-Parallel wheels that look the business and the stainless exhaust that echos the V12 model. With under 100,000 miles and a recent suspension overhaul, the condition appears to be very good and while the V8 model is only slightly less complicated than the V12 models, bills should be a bit lower than the more common M70 engine. Plus, don’t forget that the M60 only produced around 10 horsepower less when new and was less nose-heavy. For under $10,000, this is a great looking Grand Tourer that might just be the answer for making E31 ownership possible on a more reasonable budget.
