Vee Twelve Days of Christmas: 1991 BMW 850i

All I want for Christmas is a V12...that's it.  No fancy bluetooth integrated steering wheel and ear heaters or a backup camera that was tuned for THX by George Lucas -- I JUST WANT 12 cylinders of gasoline power. Find this 1991 BMW 850i here on eBay offered for $11,950 in Ozone Park, NY with a few days to go.

See a better way to drive a V12?


  1. Not enough redundant exterior shots. Too bad its a slushbox. Did these come with a 5 speed? Always like the looks.

    1. The 850csi came with a six speed transmission. Add a zero to this car's price and you would not be too high above what they sell for today.

    2. It's not so bad. Only the Dinan and tunned special CSI ones are six-figures. If you go to Bring a Trailer and search, the 6-speed CS ranges from $15K to $50K. A good, clean 100,000 mile 6-speed is about $30,000.

  2. When did "all pre-owned vehicles are one of a kind and this one can be yours today" become as ubiquitous as "original miles" in ads?

    google shows it in 32,600 ads.

    1. My other favorite is "only xxx,xxxx original miles"

  3. Yew Haw ..

  4. I bet it's the only one in "burgandy"...

    1. Yeah, the only thing that would be rarer would be a "Burgandy Camero"

  5. Maybe it's the only 850i actually running, today?
