1993 BMW 840CI Coupe
Only 73,900 miles; 12 services to date and considerable spend over the years; less than 1000 left registered in the UK; fast-appreciating model
The flagship model of the BMW range, the eight series was luxuriously trimmed inside and was packed with all the gadgets that its jet-set client base could wish for. Initially powered by an all-alloy 5-litre V12 that produced 295bhp and a mighty 330lb/ft of torque, this was soon joined by a more economical 4-litre V8 version. Producing 286bhp and mated to a five-speed automatic gearbox, the 840Ci could sprint to 60 in just over 7 seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph.
Costing over £60,000 new, the 840 was always an exclusive machine with only 2,190 built for the UK market of which less than 1000 are still registered here today, according to DVLA figures. Rare, fast and beautifully styled and built, this is a sure-fire classic of the future.
The example offered here was purchased new in May 1994 and is finished in Orient Blue with full grey leather upholstery and looks very smart throughout. It has covered only 73,900 miles to date with a good history file including 12 stamps in the service book, the last in November 2017, along with plenty of historical invoices. In 2018, it also had a smart Sony stereo fitted.
Last put through an MOT in 2018 with only one minor advisory (‘o/s/f lower suspension arm pin or bush worn but not resulting in excessive movement’) the car has not been used regularly since, although was driven to the sale and has just been fitted with a fresh battery, so it is certainly a usable head turner!
