Vehicle Description

also referred to as a 'M8', This super rare 850 'CSi' used the same 850i V12 engine but then was then tuned by BMWs M division so significantly that BMW decided to assigned its own unique engine code S70B56. The factory engine mods included a capacity increase to 5.6 litres and power increase to 380 PS (375 hp) Other factory upgrades included lower/stiffer springs/dampers and recirculating ball steering ratio was dropped 15% over the stock E31 setup these upgrades gave it much better steering/handling. The six speed manual gearbox was the only transmission option. all 850CSis came with four-wheel steering (AHK Aktive Hinterachs-Kinematik, Active rear axle Kinematics), up rated and ventilated brakes with floating front discs, rear differential oil cooler, engine oil cooler, BMW individual two-tone interior, sports seats. Bodystyling was also altered by the M division (front and rear bumpers were reshaped for improved aerodynamics) reshaped mirrors, round stainless steel exhaust tips replaced the standard square tips found on other models.
