This 1991 BMW 850i represents the cutting edge of technology at the time of its production. Under its finely sculpted hood is an aluminum-block 5.0L/296 HP V-12 with the first drive-by-wire throttle system ever used in a regular production vehicle, mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. An active 5-link rear suspension and electronic stability control, also one of the industry's first, keep the 850i in control even at the limit, and the interior offers a wide array of amenities that include keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, power sunroof with rain shield, a multi-speaker stereo and windows that automatically close as speed climbs. Capping off all those goodies is the fact that the 850i is one of the best-looking German cars of the last 50 years, making it one very desirable grand touring machine. A major service has just been completed on this triple grey coupe.
