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.
