The Classic Sale At Silverstone Festival 25th - 27th August 2023

The Classic Sale at Silverstone Festival 2023 Cars 250 Registration: TBA Chassis No.: WBSEG92030CC88139 Estimate: £60,000 - £70,000 Specialist: Simon Langsdale Telephone No: 07496 556325 Lot 727 1995 BMW 850 CSi The BMW 850CSI was the factory’s flagship model in the mid-1990s and featured the silky smooth S70 V12 engine mated to a Getrag 6-speed manual transmission and was one of the first cars ever to offer drive-by-wire throttle control. Developed from the M70, the S70 increased the bore and stroke and utilised more aggressive valve timings, resulting in an increase in maximum power to an impressive 380bhp at 5,300rpm and torque to 402lb/ft at 4,000rpm. With the hydraulic control unit mounted on the differential, the 850 uses hydraulic rear steering linked to Servotronic front steering to give precise, high-speed stability and harness the S70’s significant power output for a great driving experience. Although considered avant-garde when it first arrived, the pillarless coupé was blessed with classically proportioned, understated and essentially timeless styling that has not dated, and these beautiful and exclusive Gran Turismos still look modern today. This fabulous example was supplied new to its first owner on 5th January 1995 by BMW Green Bower Garages Ltd of Haverford West and was transferred within the same family before finally becoming the property of our vendor in 2017, and it immediately joined his private Collection. The car has only had three keepers in total (two from the same family) and has travelled just 49,500 miles from new which is supported by a history file and a stamped service book with various BMW stamps in it. It presents exceptionally well in Hellrot with a classic two tone grey leather interior which appears virtually unmarked. This particular car has never before been offered on the open market, making this a unique opportunity. These are rare cars with only 138 right-hand drive manual gearbox cars being allocated to the UK. It’s supplied with its original book pack and a copy of BMW Magazine within which the car is featured. Rarely do these special cars come to market and one in this remarkable condition may well turn out to be one of your better investments. Please note that the Cherished Registration Number, 856 BMW, does not form part of the sale but may be available by separate negotiation. A very impressive example of BMW’s mid-1990s 380bhp V12 range-topper. More Details Lot 727 Bid On Lot 727
