The BMW 850i debuted at the famed Frankfurt Auto Show in 1989, eight years after the beginning of its development. Over 900 million US dollars was spent on the car’s development. Rigorous wind tunnel testing was carried out to achieve superior drag to the 6 Series and the M6 which ceased production in 1989. Interestingly, the 850i was one of the first cars to be fitted with a fly by wire throttle, making it a pioneer of its time. Our example wears some period correct AC Schnitzer wheels which gives it a particularly sporty appearance compared to examples with the stock rims. The 850i was built in a time where technology in cars was in its pioneering stages.
Automotive manufacturers were implementing innovative technology into their cars. In this case, BMW added a power-tilt telescopic steering wheel and windows that automatically closed at high speeds. Unique features like these are what gives this appreciating classic from the 90s such a cult following.
