This Damn Near Perfect 1991 BMW 850i Is Cheaper Than You'd Expect


Someone stop us from making a bid.

The BMW 8 Series is back. Or, at least it will be in the very near future now that the automaker has revealed its stunning new 8 Series concept. There was also that camouflaged M8 teaser. So much to look forward to. So much money most of don’t have. But fear not because we just found one hell of an awesome solution. This 1991 BMW 850i, which will roll across the RM Sotheby’s auction stage on June 24 in Santa Monica, California, has an estimated price tag of just $25,000 to $35,000. Seriously.

Forget that new Ford Fusion, or whatever crossover you think your family needs. This 850i is special on so many levels. For starters, it’s powered by a 5.0-liter V12 with 296 hp and, aside from looking impeccable inside and out, there’s only 55,500 miles on the odometer. Only 4,194 examples of the 850i were imported to the US, so you can be pretty well assured your neighbor doesn’t have one. Back to that estimated price tag; why is it so inexpensive? A quick search online confirmed that old 8 Series, in general, range in price from well under $10k to, well, around $35k. Whether it’s the 840, 850 or 850 CSi, the market value for these is obviously low at the moment.

And chances are, with the upcoming re-launch of the all-new 8 Series, the original will increase in popularity and, therefore, value. Point being, buy now. Remember, this pristine, low-mileage, V12-powered 850i will very likely cost less than a new Honda Odyssey minivan. Just saying. Photos courtesy of RM Auctions.
