Here we have an excellent example of the BMW E31 8 Series 850 V12. This one is a very rare, 6 Speed manual car, with factory M Sport suspension and M Sport interior. This 1992, 5.0 litre example, comes finished in Mauritius Blue with a Tan parchment sports interior. This is such a lovely example, it comes with an excellent service history. Other benefits include the perfect sounding stainless steel exhausts and an immaculate set of BBS style alloys that really suit this shape.
The BMW E31 8 Series has finally been recognised as an excellent classic to own and enjoy. Its often difficult to find a car that has been cared for correctly. Well this one has an excellent service history. Main dealer serviced until 75,000. The last owner then spent 3 years making this example one of the best 850’s you are likely to find. Over this time he has spent around £8000 with well known specialists, getting this car up to the standards of all the cars in his collection. This car is only for sale now as he found an even rarer, CSI model.
The manual gearbox with the factory M Sport suspension, transform the drive of the 8 Series. It allows you to really enjoy the amazing performance from this superb V12 engine. You will quickly be over any UK speed limit, without any fuss. If you carry on more, you will quickly be into 3 figure speeds, without even noticing. The car is still , superbly refined, even at these speeds and far beyond. The exhaust system fitted to this 850, is the perfect balance, giving a lovely burble at tick over, a lovely deep sporty tone when pushed, but never intrusive inside this lovely car.

Bodywork / Wheels / Interior
Finished in Mauritius Blue, the paintwork and bodywork on this example are excellent. As you can see, it has a deep, all over shine. The paintwork has been polished and protected, it looks fantastic. Look underneath this example, its clearly been garaged for most of its life. The engine bay and boot areas are just as clean. A lovely looking example all round.
Inside this car comes finished in Tan Parchment leather, extended and extra quality leather of course. Again this example has clearly been looked after. The leather on the sports seats is in excellent condition, as are the deep pile carpets, door cards etc.
The wheels are an immaculate set of polished, BBS style alloys, they really suit the shape. The original alloys are available if required.
Engine / Gearbox
The 5.0i V12 engine sounds fantastic. Part of the £8000 recent expenditure included going through the engine bay, replacing all the wear and tear items, so it is a smooth and responsive as it should be.
The 6 speed manual gearbox is a delight to use, lovely light clutch, precise gear changes.
This example comes with a full service history. We have all the manuals, fully stamped service book, a folder of all old MOTs, a folder of service records, VOSA MOT history, HPI Clear certificate, BMW Brochures etc.
Please see a full breakdown of service visits below.
This 8 Series is becoming a very popular modern classic, they look fantastic and are great fun as a weekend classic to own.
Its very rare for an 850 to come up with this cars specification. 6 Speed manual cars are rare enough, but to have factory M Sport suspension and interior on an 850, there must be only a handful available. Prices of these cars are often over £30,000, and it doubtful any of them will be as good as this example.
This example comes MOT’d until July 2019 and its just been serviced this September.
Its ready to be enjoyed now
