Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is proud to present this Alpine White 1991 BMW 850i for sale. Powered by its original drivetrain, which includes the extremely smooth, yet potent for its time, 5.0L V12 and 6-speed manual transmission, this is one awesome boulevard cruiser (that also has excellent Autobahn-speed cruising capability). The V12 is near silent and vibrationless during normal driving conditions, and the 6-speed manual shifts like a hot knife through butter: it's smooth, effortless, and quick. And, speaking of 6-speed manual transmissions - this is one of only 542 (reported) 6-speed manual-equipped 850s built for 1991, which makes it a bit of a rarity. The gorgeous design of the body is timeless, and few onlookers will know that this car is nearly 30 years old. The BMW 8-series is so attractive that you'll find most valets will want to park this baby right out front so that they (and everyone else) can admire it. Inside, the medium gray leather seats still emanate the amazing aroma of BMW's finest leather, which you'll find intoxicating every time you feel the need to take this investment out for a spin. The carpet looks practically unused, and the overall condition of the interior is very good. This 850i rides on Pirelli P-Zero Rosso high-performance radials that have lots of life left in them - they look nearly new. Up front are P245/35ZR18, and out back are P285/30ZR18 "meats"; all of which are wrapped around some beautiful BMW Aluminum Alloy wheels. This 850i has drilled brake rotors at all 4 corners, which help provide fade-free stops all day long during spirited driving, and the ABS feature provides a measure of confidence during stop-and-go rush hour driving...especially if you have decided to "go retro" and take advantage of the factory-installed cellular phone and become lost in a phone conversation (assuming the analog network is still providing sufficient coverage, that is). This 850i comes with all the goodies you'd expect in a true luxury car from the early 1990's, and many that you wouldn't expect in a sports luxury car like this one. Air Conditioning, AM/FM/Cassette Radio, Aluminum Wheels, Anti-theft System, Cruise Control, Driver Airbag, Leather Seating, Power Anti-lock Brakes, Power Locks, Power Mirrors, Power Seats, Power Sunroof, Power Windows, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, Spare Tire and Jack, Tilt/Telescopic Steering Wheel, and Trunk Mounted CD Changer.
