BMW E31 840 Ci Sport

£SOLD

     uxury GT or Sports car? The fact is that the 840 Ci did both exceptionally well especially when blended with the Sport pack. The car truly was an awesome all-rounder. A stunning long distance GT car that still gave the enthusiast owner an exciting sporty drive. Very clever really and I don’t think any of us realised just how good it was when launched. We were all guilty of living in the shadow of the 6 series especially the M635. It was also great to see a pillarless coupe again from BMW, something the 6 series sadly missed.

BMW wanted to reach out to an entirely new customer base with the E31. A new level of luxury and driver comfort in a sporty GT was aimed at the truly high end luxury market. The 8 was BMWs flagship for a decade.

 

Of all the E31 models the 840 had to be the best all-rounder of the bunch. The compact V8 enhanced the driver experience still further.

 

This example is the later 4.4 litre version which gave increased torque and improved fuel economy. Launched in January 1995, only 3075 cars were produced. Packing 286 bhp and 420 Nm of torque. This luxurious GT was propelled to 60 mph in just 7 seconds with the automatic gearbox.

This is without a doubt the best example 840 CI we have seen for a very long time. The underside of the car is simply amazing and in 'as new' condition. We have very carefully cleaned the underside to ensure the lucky new owner can see just how stunning she is. The car is 100% original, unrestored in anyway, never welded, all original paint, the underside is as new and still features all the original fuel and brake pipes. The interior is 'as new' throughout and would appear to have never been sat in. The cockpit still has that new car smell.  The car has been stored in the same heated garage since she was 6 months old. Not ever driven once in the winter as the owners lived in South Africa during the cold months and therefore salt has never damaged the underside bodywork, pipes or suspension components. This has helped preserve what can only be described as an as close to new 840 CI Sport that one could possibly find.  

 

The car will pass through the Classic Heroes workshop for our normal pre-sales prep work including PDI, Inspection II service, new brake fluid and coolant, replace bonnet catch, replace front brake pads and sensor, replace rear brake pads and sensor, replace front track control arms, replace four tyres, replace bumper rubber, replace o/s grill, replace wheel arch liner, Replace o/s and n/s lower rear suspension swivels, replace gearbox sump gasket and filter, replace front to rear vent pipe and screws, replace cam cover gaskets, replace windscreen, carry out four wheel alignment, clean the underside of the car and treat with cavity protection wax, road test and MOT.

History

 

Purchased new in 1998 by an advertising agent.  He covered 11,000 miles in 6 months when he decided to sell the car back to BMW. Our customer was standing in L&C BMW having his 740 serviced when he saw a silver 840 CI Sport in the showroom. He happened to mention to the salesman that he would love a new 840CI Sport in green but the salesman explained that no more were available but he would see what he could do. After a couple of weeks he phoned our customer to explain that he had found a perfect 6 month old example in Fern Green. The deal was done and the car passed to her second owner with whom she remains until now.

 

We have been asked to now sell the car for this second owner. The car has covered only 44,000 miles with a 100% complete and documented service history with BMW from new. The car is delivered with every single invoice including the purchase invoices, every single MOT, all the original tools, manuals, service book, radio and keys.
