You close the heavy driver side door, the windows automatically seal, the leather seats contour to your body, you turn the key and the 300bhp V12 breathes to life, tune your favorite music, adjust your sunglasses, and you are ready to start your day. The big 5.0 litre V12 idles effortlessly waiting for your next command. The heavy chassised coupe gives you the sense of security, perfect balance and power. Owners of newer BMWs, Mercedes, Porsches glance over and eye the classic lines, and wonder how your older coupe would match up against their newer car. You turn up the Mozart, and smile knowing you are driving one the the best engineered and elegant luxury sports coupes ever built.
Classic Teutonic styling, smooth V12 power, perfectly balanced handling, elegant driving experience, quiet cabin, low rumble exhaust tone, 300bhp available to move you effortless to high speed, ice cold A/C, heated seats, every accessory you can imagine, good size trunk, big powerful brakes.
15-20mpg, this is not a Prius. A performance chipset for added 30+bhp is the way to go, this is an expensive car to service, but it is worth the price, find a good BMW mechanic, maintain your 850 and it will repay you with years of pure driving enjoyment.
