I love these cars and think they're soooo sexy!

But don't forget, these cars once WERE 100g's and not you can get them anywhere from 20 to 40k..... because repairs are a BITCH!!!

I believe the 850 had a V12 engine that was different than the one in the 750 and since these engines are obsolete it means $$$$$$$$ in repair costs!

^^ all the 850 CSIs are 6 speed I believe as well as some early 91-93 850s. very rare to have a manual in a regular 850 tho. The 840 did not come with manual.
