What a beauty!!! Wish they would have put it in production. As it is the 850CSI's are already near impossible to get these days. Prices on those are way up

If my memory isn't failing me, one exterior on each door integrated into the trim and the exterior door handles.

Around that time there were:

///Mx and Mxxx depending on the market
///M Sport
///M Technic
///M Motorsport

The 8 series has one of my all time favorite silhouettes. Kinda has that Testarossa front end, one of my other bed wetters growing up.

Reminds me of a 240sx that knocked up a 300z...and I don't mean that in a bad way

Nice aggressive styling. What a motor!!!

These would be huge dollars now if they were ever released.

Agree on that, so really angry on the observation that Karen Dukec and Van Looy Lewis and the news, start to push the monster grills as the genuine original design language picking up heritage!? M1 and E31 didn't have it and both were teenager dream cars on the level of supercars like no other BMW ever before!
