This car has spent most of its life in Hong Kong, and is comes with its UK history and its original book pack with plenty of service stamps to corroborate the extremely low mileage of just 47,000. The car is in lovely condition and drives well, as it should for a V12 coupe with such low mileage. The car benefits from a new set of tyres, rear suspension refresh and a full service, so is ready for its new owner to enjoy fully.
Its rare to find an 8-series with a black interior, and its beautifully matched with the red paintwork. The metallic red paintwork is in good, but not perfect, having a few stone chips on the front and the odd small car-park dink. The paintwork could always benefit from further love and attention, though that is if you’re being picky.
The 5.0-litre V12 engine develops 300bhp and 332ft lbs of torque, enough to whisk the 850i to 62mph in 6.8 seconds, which is very impressive considering the BMW’s not insignificant 1,790kg kerb weight. This is still a fast car today and pressing the throttle to the floor gives the kind of thrust that only a V12 can. This car really does make for a fantastic motorway cruiser and could easily be used to tour the continent should you wish, with a lovely interior to keep you comfortable during your journey.
The car stills sports the original six-cassette holder between the front seats, although the head-unit has been upgraded to a modern Sony CD player and radio. All of the electrics work as they should.
