BMW E31 840 Ci Sport £34,000
Arctic Silver Metallic
uxury GT or Sports car? The fact is that the 840 Ci did both exceptionally well especially when blended with the Sport pack. The car truly was an awesome all rounder. A stunning long distance GT car that still gave the enthusiast owner an exciting sporty drive. Very clever really and I don’t think any of us realised just how good it was when launched. We were all guilty of living in the shadow of the 6 series especially the M635 CSI. It was also great to see a pillar-less coupe again from BMW, something the 6 series sadly missed.
BMW wanted to reach out to an entirely new customer base with the E31. A new level of luxury and driver comfort in a sporty GT was aimed at the truly high end luxury market. The 8 was BMWs flagship for a decade.
Of all the E31 models the 840 had to be the best all rounder of the bunch. The compact V8 enhanced the driver experience still further.
This car is very well known to us here at Classic Heroes having looked after it for many years. The current fastidious owner is a serial E31 enthusiast. This example sat alongside another 840 and his beloved 850 CSI. This particular example was detailed and used for BMW Car Club concours events with great success. When looking around this extraordinary car, it is very clear that it has had a cosseted life with all previous owners.
The owner instructed us to perform a program of age related preventive maintenance over the last few years, followed by very careful underside structural bodyshell clean and protection with cavity wax.
This example is a later 4.4 litre version which gave increased torque and improved fuel economy. Launched in January 1995, only 3075 cars were produced. Packing 286 bhp and 420 Nm of torque. This luxurious GT was propelled to 60 mph in just 7 seconds with the automatic gearbox.
This car has been maintained to the very highest level and represents one of the very best on the market.
Three previous owners and only 79,100 miles. 100% complete service history and many supporting documents. Supplied by Sytner BMW Nottingham and serviced by Sytner until two years ago.
