What they should have built originally
By KElliott on
Vehicle1997 BMW 8 Series 850Ci 2dr Coupe
ReviewThis is not your father's 850. A stock machine was given to Steve Dinan and $45,000 later, a twin-turbo super coupe was delivered. Suffice it to say that all of the performance short comings were eliminated as there now lurks a 525hp, 550 lb.torque well mannered V12 waiting to be driven. Less then 50 V12s were altered and of the 8's, most were automatics (not as much fun as the 6 speed but very well behaved). This combination of raw power, slot-car handling, and technology, all brought together in what is perhaps the best looking vehicle that Munich has ever produced, is hard to beat.
Best Features0-60 in under 5 seconds, top speed 185.
Worst FeaturesBMW should have made these on an OEM basis.
