Lot 165: BMW 840Ci

Classic - Collectors and Sports Cars, Barons (28 October 2013)

Design of the 8 Series began in 1986, with construction starting in the same year. The 8 Series debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) in early September 1989. It was designed to move beyond the market of the original 6 Series. The 8 Series, however, had substantially improved performance, as well as a far higher purchase price. The 840Ci was available with a 5-speed automatic transmission, though European cars were given the option of a 6-speed manual transmission. The only external features distinguishing the V8 model from the V12 models were the quad round exhausts, which were square in the V12 models. The 840Ci stayed in production until May 1999. This example dates from 1994 and is said to have had a small fortune invested over the years, which is evident from the piles of bills which accompany the car. It is complete with a current MoT and is taxed until 2014, so could be driven home, subject to insurance. Finished in metallic blue with grey leather the car comes complete with the aforementioned file of bills and an owner's manual.
