BMW E31 850 CSI INDIVIDUAL

£105,000

      he 850 CSI is still considered by many as the last true Bahn storming, low volume, BMW M built GT Car. Only 160 of these very special and highly expensive cars were built over a 3-year period in right hand drive. It is as close as we got to the M8 with BMW having canned the M8 after the production of just one prototype. It was a change of direction for BMW M that lead to the decision that the M badge no longer lived on a big GT car. The 850 CSI was largely BMW M inspired with a massive input from their engineers in suspension, steering, brakes, engine and aerodynamics. We certainly feel that the 850 CSI is the best high-speed mile eater to leave BMW and M. A very clever blend of high performance and handling with luxury still rarely seen today. M inspired and very low volume has to make this a true must for the most serious of car collectors.

All 850 CSI’s were 6 speed manual and fitted with limited slip differential as standard. BMW M made numerous upgrades to the M70 engine which was increased to 5.6 litres. These mods with improved inlet and exhaust took the power to an impressive 380 bhp and 550 Nm of torque. Front springs, rear springs and shocks were uprated by M and BMWs four-wheel steer system became standard on the CSI. The front brakes where larger than the standard 850 with Brembo calipers. The interior on the standard car was already an extraordinarily high specification but the CSI saw red needles added to the instruments along with M Badged and striped gear knob, door sill plates and engine cover. Externally the CSI benefited from revised M front and rear spoilers, sill skirts, aerodynamic mirrors, and a fantastic looking exhaust system.

This particular example is very well known to Classic Heroes. We have known the last three owners of the car and previously sold the car. The amazing document file gives you an insight in to the fastidious level of care that has been lavished on this car by the previous owners. 

 

Having covered only 57,000 miles and featuring an impeccable and documented service history, this car has been in very good company as part of a very special car collection. Parked alongside three pre-war Bentleys, Porsche’s, Datsun 240Z, BMW 2002 Tii, and a series 1 Land Rover, the family ensured that this 850 CSI wanted for nothing and had to be faultless

To ensure pride of place as part of that collection, the car has recently benefitted from a no expense spared, bare metal respray costing in excess of £15,000 and finished with £2,500  PPF, valeting and ceramic coating.  

The car will be presented to the new owner having passed through the workshop for the following pre-delivery work. 

 

Carry out Inspection II service 

Change brake fluid and coolant

Replace faulty low-tone horn 

Replace front to rear fuel breather pipe

Replace front and rear tyres 

Replace both rear exhaust boxes

Replace n/s/r upper suspension swivel

Replace both front upper tie bar bushes

Remove differential and replace differential oil seals 

Clean and protect AHK pipe and differential oil cooler pipes

Replace front and rear brake hoses and bleed brakes

Underside structural clean, inspection, detailing and protection program using clear cavity wax and Tectyl ML.

 

Packed in the boot will be all the original tools, spare keys, all manuals, service wallet, handbooks and fully stamped service book. The supporting document file is awesome containing MOTs back to 2000, previous V5s, build sheet, photograph file detailing recent works, all invoices back to 1997 including the sales invoice to the second owner with only 10,617 miles recorded.
