1995 BMW 8 Series 850CSi 2dr Coupe
The pinnacle of BMW design and engineering is captured in this "no expense spared to develop" ultimate BMW supercoupe. An absolute dream to drive, you are the master of the universe on the highway with monstrous amounts of torque available at any speed or in any gear to propel you past virtually any plebian motorcar you may encounter along the way. The design of the 850CSi stills turns heads 15 years following its introduction, and the car is swiftly becoming a collectible with a sizeable cult following. BMW simply never built one better than the 850CSi - it's the total package of exclusivity, luxury and performance.
The BMW 8 series introduced many of the items of technology that have now filtered down into garden variety BMWs. Unique to the 850CSi, though, the active rear wheels steering (AHK) was revolutionary, and made the handling of this large coupe seemingly defy the laws of physics.
Every characteristic of the 850CSi makes it unique and what it is. It's extremely difficult to improve this masterpiece.
