Full service historyCherished number forms part of the saleRecommissioned in 2018 just 40 miles agoA lovely, lovely, lovely 8-Series??????Built between 1989 and 1999, the BMW 8-Series was offered with a V8 or V12 engine and whilst commonly thought to be a successor to the 6-Series models it was, in fact, a new series entirely designed to be BMW's 'flagship' and thus command a premium price with looks and performance to match. The 840Ci was produced with two different engines the first of which was a 4-litre V8 M60B40 unit producing 286bhp and fitted from 1993 to late 1995. This was later changed to a new 4.4-litre V8 M60B40 unit which produced the same power output but had significantly better torque. Available with a 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox, the only external distinguishing features from the earlier V12 models were the quad round exhausts. As well as stupendous performance - 0-60mph in around 5.8 seconds and an electronically limited maximum speed of 155mph - the 8-Series offered the latest in suspension technology, featuring computerised monitoring and adjustment of damper settings, and some rear-wheel steering. Reportedly 3,075 examples of the 4.4-litre V8 BMW 840 Ci had found homes when production finished in May 1999. Although out of production for almost 20 years, the 8-Series was blessed with classically proportioned, understated, and essentially timeless styling that has not dated, and these beautiful and exclusive Gran Turismos still look modern today. The 840 is such an enjoyable car to drive that it is very rare that we come across one with very low mileage, like the 15,607 miles example offered here. This fabulous car was supplied to Coopers of Thames Ditton and they first registered it as a dealer demonstrator on February the 10th 1997. Its finished in a most attractive shade of Boston Green and, being a demonstrator, was particularly well-spec'd including electric memory seats, electric sunroof, black ruffled leather interior, and 17" bolted split-rim alloy wheels. After six weeks it was sold to its first keeper, a Mr Manning of Epsom, who subsequently sold it two years later to the car's current keeper at an indicated mileage of around 9,000. The sale advert for that transaction is in the owner's file along with the original purchase invoice, 16 older MOT certificates, documents relating to the Cherished Number 'B11 BMW', service records relating to 6 services in total (with the most recent at 15,000 miles) and the original handbooks and spare keys.  It has obviously been used very sparingly by its current keeper as he has only covered 6,000 miles since 1999. Having spent some time in the doldrums, these understated coupes have suddenly started generating serious interest, and this low mileage, really well cared for, two owner example deserves serious consideration.
