ONLY 14,000 MILES
FINANCE EXAMPLE - £4000 DEPOSIT 36 * £1191 MONTHLY PAYMENTS
Here we are lucky to have an immaculate and very low mileage example of the BMW 840 Sport Individual. This 1997 example, comes with only 14,000 miles from new. It needs to be seen to be appreciated, its as close to finding a new E31 as you are likely to find. Its a genuine Sport model, so comes with all the desirable options. But its the colour combination that I think is outstanding. Its a rare Individual model, so the buyer chose a very unique colour combination, Cosmos Black Schwarz Metallic paintwork with Gaucho extended leather. This interior is amazing, this is believed to be 1 of only 2 with this colour combination. As you can hopefully see , the condition is excellent throughout. The paintwork looks very original, the interior is in amazing condition.
This car has led a very sheltered life. The car has a lovely ownership history, looks to have been owned by the correct type of owners, who kept the car stored in private under apartment car parks in London, when not in use. The car shows 3 owners, the first was actually Park Lane BMW, so its really only had two. The first was a Wing Commander, who stored the car in Chelsea. He owned the car for 13 years, before selling to another owner based in London.
This car is true collector quality, if you are looking for an 8 Series, it would be hard to find a better example.

Bodywork / Wheels / Interior
This 840 is in immaculate condition. The Cosmos Schwarz Black metallic paintwork is in stunning condition. It has the deepest all over shine, this 840’s condition instantly stands out. The paintwork looks to be very original, it really would happily sit in a BMW showroom in this condition.
The interior is amazing, probably the best 8 Series interior I have seen. The extremely rare Guacho extended leather is of the highest quality and is all in excellent condition. The leather extends to the door cards, the central console, sun visors, dash console, all completed with double stitching. The carpets are again of the very best quality, with a really deep pile. The original BMW overmats are again in excellent condition, as is the BMW Sport headlining. Another nice touch is the stitching on the leather trimmed steering wheel is finished in the BMW Msport colours, very nice.
The Sport alloys on this example are all in excellent condition, free from any curbing etc and again look to be very original. All are fitted with the correct Michelin Sport tyres.
Engine / Gearbox
The 4.4 V8 engine fitted to this example is one of BMW’s best engines. It sounds and performs perfectly, providing plenty of smooth performance. Push this car and it rewards instantly, put the suspension is Sport mode and the car returns a very planted drive. The seating position is excellent, you soon forget what a big, luxurious car this is as it performs so well.
This BMW comes with an excellent service history. Looking through the history, its clear this car has been used very much as a special occasion car. It also has had a couple of periods where its been stored and not used (2004 -> 2010) and (2012 -> 2014). We have all the old MOT’s, a full VOSA MOT history, HPI clear report including mileage verification check, Original manuals in leather pack, Original stamped service book, Old service receipts, Original sales brochure, all keys and key fobs.
Please see a full breakdown of service visits below.
The BMW 8 Series is becoming a very sought after classic, particularly the Sport models. This example is and amazing example, it really is as good as you will find.
It will come with all the fluids changed by A1 BMW (Oil / Coolant / Brake Fluid / Gearbox oil) to ensure its ready to be enjoyed, its MOT’d until September 2019.
