Debuted in 1989 at the Frankfurt Motor show, it was instantly a modern classic with many regarding it as BMW’s first supercar. The sheer size of the vehicle certainly allowed its presence to be known on the road, with its swooping front end coupled with its wide rear body. The retro look is backed up with its impressive low drag co-efficient, in similar taste to a Porsche 918, which was designed using sophisticated computer technology; quite the novelty back in the 1980’s.
This 5.0L V12 model developing 300bhp drives like an extraordinary grand tourer, with a seamlessly smooth gearbox to create exactly what a grand tourer should be.
The specification of this BMW includes the recognisable Bright Red paint and a Black leather interior equipped with sports seats; no doubt a classic and timeless combination. Inside the classically sporty cabin it instantly brings one back to the 90’s where one can certainly feel its luxurious status with its design and technology used. Finally, Let us not forget, BMW's infamous pop-up headlights!
BMW 850's are becoming increasingly rare, and with so their value is rising at an extraordinary rate. With only 69 remaining on UK roads, the classic 8 series is no doubt a confident investment opportunity further recognised by the recent release of the new model this year.
