It's taken many a long year, but collectors have finally latched onto the astonishingly capable BMW 8 Series line and good ones are now keenly sought. This decidedly clean righthand drive first generation (E31) example sports eye-catching Red bodywork teamed with a Grey leather interior. Its V8 engine drives through the optional automatic gearbox.

The Klaus Kapitza-designed 8 Series (chassis code E31) was launched at the Frankfurt Salon in 1989. Though it effectively replaced the 6 Series, it was originally intended as an additional model line - an upmarket range with superior performance and price tag to match. From mid-1995 the 840Ci's original 4.0-litre engine was supplanted by a 4.4-litre one.
