View Full Version : 1990 BMW 8-Series loaded Coupe V12 engine. 850 E31

10-12-2011, 10:45 AM
Located in Winnipeg MB.

The flagship of the BMW line, this car has more technology, and more luxury than any other car of the time, and is still more features and options than most new cars (halogen, auto-aiming head lights, drive by wire throttle, four speed auto transmission etc.)


V12 engine, rear wheel drive, heated leather seats, open window design with no "B pillar". This is a luxury touring car built by BMW to take on Ferrari and Aston Martin for the top touring sport coupe. Dealer price in 1990 for an 850ci was $121,500.

This well cared for top of the line 8 series has EVERY OPTION, including a power rear sun shade and the center console computer still functions perfectly. The 12 cylinder 5.0L engine puts out more torque at 1800RPM than a tractor. I bought this car for the legendary engine and wish I was able to drive it more often. The exhaust note is a smooth deep growl that sounds exactly the opposite of a typical 4 cylinder rice rocket. This is the ultimate luxury highway car, meant for comfort and power on a long drive.
Limited down town parking means I need to make room for a new toy.

Car is being sold with a fresh safety, and I'll have an oil change and professional exterior/interior detailing done prior to delivery to the new buyer. Car is sold with high performance winter tires on stock winter rims. (19" rims/tires available for a premium).

This BMW has been stored in a secure indoor underground heated garage and is 100% rust free. Engine has a deep rumbling gurgle and all the electronics / computers / still work.

Check back by the 10th of October, I'll post up a link to an online photo album with 30+ high resolution pictures of the car. My spotty cell phone pics will do in the mean time.

I am a serious seller and willing to entertain interested, knowledgeable buyers with a sincere interest in buying a BMW 850. Look at e-bay, other locally listed BMWs and check out the major BMW 8 series forum for other comparable listings;


Typical selling prices for these cars are listed there. I'm not a nigerian scammer, the car is located in Winnipeg Manitoba and has a Manitoba Cert of Ownership.

Call/text or e-mail for more information.

I'm a realistic and serious seller. Please feel free to ask questions about the car, but I'm not interested in dealing with tire kickers or day dreamers.

if it could talk...must have quite the history coming in from Japan!!!

and i can only imagine how much it just drinks the gas now and probably lost a good 50HP.

one car that never turned into a real classic like the cars it was competing against like the Aston Martins.

Did I miss the price?

interesting to see some sort of oil leak under the brake pedal on the floor mats...can't be a good sign. these things must be magnets for money...and lifting it out of the wallet.

Wow, excellent price!

All that and I forgot to post the price up here. Darn. Too late to go back and edit the first post.
PRICE IS $7750
It always bugs me when I see that missing in ads....and now I've gone and done it :-(

The 'oil' under the pedal isn't a leak, just lots of grime from the driver's right foot always being in exactly the same spot.

Same story for the big wet patch around the car. I hosed it down to get all the dust off before I took picks and video, and that's the remaining puddle.

I should take some pictures of the underside and under the dash to show this fact.

As for the 'gas guzzling'.....well Its not a honda civic. The trip computer says it averages about 15.5L/100 km in city driving, and from the two tanks I've put in, I think that's accurate. The most painful thing about this car and gas prices is the size of the gas tank. It's a 80 liter tank, so filling it with mid grade isn't the most pleasant thing about owning the car.

Since I know many interested buyers are in Ontario, I'd be willing to deliver the car (I have family and my fiancee lives in Oakville...so I fly there a lot...It wouldn't be a lot of skin off my back to deliver the car to Ontario in person.....with a deposit of course).
