This M-Technic optioned luxury two-door sports coupe was built in the BMW Dingolfing factory in Germany in July 1997 and arrived in Australia later that year. The car was first owned by a local doctor who purchased the car new for $215,690. The second and more recent owner has had the vehicle meticulously prepared to bring it up to concours condition. Apart from any necessary servicing and parts replacement and a facial this is a very special and unique high performance BMW sort by collectors.

The vehicle comes with a photobook that provides information on the 8 Series, its introduction into the UK in 1993 and a coloured new car brochure for the 1997 840Ci when introduced into the USA. The book also details and shows the work carried out to prepare this vehicle for showing. There were only a handful of these late model 4.4lt 840Ci models released in Australia before the 8 Series was discontinued in 1999.

The BMW salesman that accompanied the original owner to select his 8 Series from the Melbourne office of BMW Australia in January 1998 has provided pristine copies of "BMW Magazine" that outlines the introduction of the very special 850CSi model in 1993 and the 840Ci model in 1994 into Australia.
