With the exception of the earlier 850csi, the last 3 model years of the 8-Series, and specifically the 1995,1996 and 1997 850ci, are considered by collectors as the most valuable and collectible of all the 8-Series BMW sport coupe’s ever produced !

There was a grand total of just 363 of the last 850ci delivered to the USA during the final 3 years of the 8-Series model factory production.

This very rare BMW e31 was an ultra low factory production model, fully loaded with the ultra-smooth and rare 5.4 liter, 322 hp V12 engine and the equally rare

5 speed Steptronic automatic transmission that can also be shifted manually when you happen to be in the ultimate driving machine sport performance mood.

The 850ci is well known to be far superior when compared to the many earlier

5.0 Liter BMW 850i models that were only fitted with the 4 speed automatic

The car is completely stock with the exception of the set of low profile 18” M Parallel Wheels that are pictured. Also includes Brand New tires.

The top speed is 155 mph right from the factory with no modification but still gets a reasonably economical 20 MPG highway when cruising at 65 mph.

Only rarely will you ever actually see a BMW 850ci on the street anywhere in the entire USA. So in addition to how much fun the 850ci is to drive, this is one of those special exotic sports cars that, because of it’s rarity, always gets a lot of attention via looks, questions, and admiring comments wherever you happen to go. This can be one of the more enjoyable and intriguing aspects of owning such a beautiful and rare specimen of an automobile like the BMW 850ci.

The 1997 BMW 850ci is indeed one of BMW’s β€œUltimate Driving Machines”.

Here is a bit of important BMW V-12 Engine Trivia for the history of the 5.4 Liter:

If you ask, your local BMW dealership service department, they will assure you that the next generation 5.4 Liter V-12 engine has not only the best engine BMW has ever made, but it also has the most reliable service history. And it is rated by BMW for an expected 500,000 miles before need of an overhaul. And from 1998 to this present day the BMW V-12 engine has also powered the Rolls-Royce which BMW completed the purchase of and now owns the Rolls-Royce Co. as of January 1, 2003.
