1991 BMW 8-Series

Up for sale is a beautiful example of the very rare V12 6 speed E31 850i in Calypsorot Metallic (252). This 1991 model year has 92,700 miles and will rise as we welcome test drives to serious buyers. This car needs nothing and is ready for a high speed blast across the country.

We acquired this car from fellow BMW enthusiast and long-time owner and addressed the details below as well as getting a full paint correction. The only issues upon purchase were a power steering leak and jumpy fuel gauge (both of which have been fixed by local BMW shop along with all of the other work). Everything else done to the car was preventative, common E31 issues, or small details to ensure the next owner could confidently enjoy driving the car.
