BMW E31 840Ci Sport
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 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. The Sport option gave the now highly desirable exterior aerodynamic package and Motorsport mirrors along with Motorsport suspension, sport seats and sport steering wheel.
It is very rare for us to find any 840 CI that meets our criteria for the collector. It is a privilege to be asked to find a new home for this very special Individual with only 24,000 miles from new. Order in Individual Atlantis blue with Individual Lotus leather with Atlantis Blue piping.
The current owner has asked us to find a new home for his loved 840 CI as his collection of cars is simply getting too big. It has been a tricky decision.
We recently had the car pass through our workshop for the owner. His instruction was simple. It must be the best and want for nothing. A car of this low mileage and quality is always hard to fault. We carried out replacement of inner and outer rear suspension swivels, front track control arms, rear brake caliper replating for purely cosmetic reasons and four-wheel alignment. The underside body shell was very carefully washed by our workshop team and sympathetically treated to protection with clear cavity wax. Underside pictures are available on request.

The 840 CI was a victim of its own success, hence finding cars with this incredibly low mileage, perfect service record and extraordinarily original condition is now almost impossible. There is no doubt this represents one of only a handful of cars that survive at this level.
The car will pass through the workshop one final time before handover to the lucky new owner for a PDI, full checks and a new MOT.
In the glovebox will be the original service wallet, fully stamped service book, all manuals, and handbooks.
