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.

 

Fabulous in Dakar Yellow with a Nappa leather interior in black, this fabulous late 840ci Sport was first registered in 1998, fitted with the full M-Sport package of aerodynamics and suspension modifications (including the Nurburgring suspension system).

 

The 840ci has been in the custodianship of just one family owner from new, and has covered a mere 25,000 miles. Servicing has been taken care of by the BMW dealer network as and when required. Offered with a full BMW book pack including stamped service schedule, this must be one of the best examples of one BMW’s legendary GT car.
