Description

BMW began creating the 8-Series in the 1980s, and in today’s dollars, the equivalent of $900 million was spent in development costs. The E31 made its debut at the 1989 Frankfurt Auto Show and the car was immediately a hit with its low-aerodynamic lines and impressive V-12 engine. Black Horse Garage is proud to represent this 1997 BMW 850 Ci. This 850 has had nearly $35,000 worth of restoration and service work performed on it in the last three years, including here at Black Horse Garage. The previous owner is a BMW collector and knowledgeable enthusiast of the 8-Series. He meticulously maintained and serviced the car and it comes with service records that show work and purchases on: suspension, engine performance, accessories, C-31 front bumper, and Alpina wheels to name a few. One of the first things you notice is how sleek and jet-like the 850 looks, especially in Cosmo Black. The designer of the car, Klaus Kapitza, was aiming for a design with the lowest drag coefficient the team could construct (0.29 coefficient of drag). The German manufacturer gave this grand tourer a small grille and flip-up headlights to complete the look. Another thing that makes the 850 Ci stand out is its 5.4-liter V-12 engine. This one comes with the M73B54 engine producing 322 horsepower. It is driven by an automatic transmission and has less than 60,000 miles on it. On the inside, it is a fitting luxury coupe from the 1990s. The 850 has heated leather seats, automatic air conditioning, traction control, power windows and locks, and power moon roof. It also has a Blaupunkt stereo with an SD card slot, USB port, and a 6-CD changer in the trunk. This decade was big on hidden features too like a change holder on the driver door, ashtray that pops out to empty, and cupholders tucked away in the glovebox.
