1994 BMW 850csi for sale
Fast Facts:

  • Compared to the 850ci, the 850CSi had lighter pistons, increased displacement, increased compression, more aggressive valve timing, less restrictive exhaust, and a variable RPM limit. BMW Motorsport specified stronger front hubs, stiffer shocks and shorter springs, and speed sensitive power steering
  • The engine (code S70B56) was related to the engine used in the famed McLaren F1 (code S70/2). The complex engine requires two computers, one for each bank
  • Featured a “Variable Throttle Linkage” controlled by buttons on the dash (“S” for Sport, “K” for Comfort). Sport provides a more aggressive throttle action, while Comfort provides a smoother, softer control
  • Utilizes a variable redline for RPM control. 1st and 2nd gear is limited to 6400 rpm, 3rd is 6200, 4th is 6100, 5th is 6000, and 6th is a mere 5150 rpm. This was to prolong engine life, as a new short block can run upwards of $18k
  • The CSi was only offered with a manual transmission
  • The 850i it was based off of was the first production car to utilize a CAN (Controller Area Network). This substantially reduced the number of wires throughout the car, reducing weight and complexity
Key Model Year Changes:

  • 1994 MY changes were limited to exterior colors only. Arctic Silver and Cosmos Black became options.
  • There were no major mechanical changes to the 850CSi during its three and a half year production

Seller Notes:

  • Factory 6spd in Hellrot Red
  • 18 inch staggered M parallel wheels
  • Original medical kit box
    remains in the rear arm rest with all the original medical supplies
  • All stock except for Dinan catback exhaust and wheels
