Known History

The car presented here is a magnificent 1992 model year BMW 8 Series, an 850i model with the 5-litre V12 engine (type M70B50) mated to a 6-speed Getrag manual gearbox. Producing 300 bhp in standard trim, the engine on this car was tuned by Conrad Gruber, the Austrian engineer behind many of the mechanical changes offered by the famous German tuning firm K÷nig Specials. On this 850, the main work done to increase the engine's performance was to add an Albrex supercharger, taking the car's maximum power up to 420 bhp. While the mechanical changes are considerable, those to the bodywork remain discreet, respecting both the understated elegance of the improvements made by Gruber/Albrex and the pure styling of the "basic" 850. In fact, only the original wheels have been replaced by the 17-inch rims from the 850 CSi and a lower spoiler, restyled sills and smaller door mirrors fitted to improve the car's aerodynamics. As a further delicate touch, the inlet manifolds have been painted red, matching the brake calipers finished in the same colour. These go perfectly with the car's all-black colour scheme. Owned by a meticulous enthusiast, a diehard fan of the 850, the car is in near-new condition. The paintwork is faultless, the engine bay and boot are very clean, while the interior is remarkably well preserved for a car which is more than 28 years old. The file of invoices on hand, which date back to 2004 when the car was in Germany, attests moreover to the thorough maintenance which it has clearly always received. Serviced last year at 137,115 km (85,199 miles), other work has included the recent replacement of the spark plugs and all four tyres. At just under 137,600 km (85,500 miles), this lavishly equipped German GT has covered a very reasonable mileage for a BMW 850. Taking all these factors into account, it is undoubtedly the most attractive and interesting 850 currently on the market. All the more so as the work done on the car makes it comparable to the very exclusive Alpina B12 5.7 coupÚ ů
