The Ultimate modern day Q car

Slimline appearance, discretely muscled and the picture book proportions the 850CSi M Coupe. Launched in October 1992 it is the perfect image of elegance on wheels of what is commonly known as a dream car. Equipped with every technical sophistication the 850CSi took over from the prototype M8. It used the same engine as the 850i, which was tuned so significantly that BMW assigned it a new engine code: S70B56. The modifications included a capacity increase to 5.6 liters and power increase to 375 horsepower. The engine can be identified by the “Powered by M” inscription on the central engine cover.

The 850CSi’s modified suspension included stiffer springs and dampers and reduced the car’s ride height. The recirculating ball steering ratio was dropped 15% over the stock E31 setup. The 850Si also sported wider wheels, with the option of forged M Parallel wheels. The front and rear bumpers were reshaped for improved aerodynamic performance. Four round stainless steel exhaust tips replaced the square tips found on other models. The 6-speed manual gearbox was the only transmission option. In Europe, all 850CSi’s came with four-wheel steering (AHK – Aktive Hinterachs-Kinematik).

With a worldwide production of 30,621 cars produced the 8 series was a success spanning 10 years. The pinnacle of the series being the 'CSi' followed in the traditions of the M Power predecessors, a true  'wolf' in sheep's clothing. With just 1,510 cars built world wide,  equating to only 2% of the grand total, this is a true reflection of the importance of this modern day Q car.

Finished in gleaming Daytona Violet metallic coachwork with light Grey ruffled hide and match main carpets. Benefitting with every conceivable luxury option in a period including dual zone climate control, electric sunshine roof and automatic stability control to just name a few.
