Description

The wonderfully dramatic BMW 8 Series Coupé was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1989 and positively bristled with innovations, as befitted the flagship model from the makers of “the ultimate driving machine”. Luxuriously trimmed inside and packed with all the gadgets that its jet-set client base could wish for, the 8 Series turned every journey into an occasion and made the driver feel special every time they slipped behind the wheel. Initially, it was powered by a magnificent all-alloy, 5-litre V12 that produced 295bhp and a mighty 330lb/ft of torque.

Allied to a 5-speed automatic gearbox that could be operated manually if really rapid progress was desired, this was sufficient to generate a 0-60mph time of just 6.8 seconds on its way to a top speed electronically limited to 155mph. An equally brilliant 4-litre V8 engine was also later offered, as was a 4.4-litre which addressed the lack of torque of the smaller-engined car.
Presented in solid black with contrasting sumptuous grey leather interior, this excellent example has an extensive service history and has been fastidiously maintained.

The cherished number plate is not included in the sale.
