Built from 1992 to 1996, the 850 CSi belongs to the first generation of the BMW E31. This generation is known for its sporty design and innovative technology. The BMW 850 CSi is considered the high-performance version of the BMW 8 Series, developed by Karl-Heinz Kalbfell and Wolfgang Reitzle. The 850 CSi was an evolution of the original 850i model, which offered an exciting driving experience in its time.
