Some of the most interesting upcoming cars have been caught testing at the Nurburgring including the Velar SVR (featuring JLR’s phenomenal V8), the new AM Vanquish/DBS, 8-series, Supra and Cullinan.
There isn’t a huge amount of information with this lot, apart from that it is believed that the mileage is correct at 46,000 (which if true would be very low), and that it has been a part of a collection for a long time. Continue reading “Auction Spot #43”

A super coupe can be a fantastic thing, and the BMW 8-series is instantly recognisable as an appreciating modern classic that is starting to receive strong media attention. The 850CSI is the pick of the littler and an M8 in all but name, this eBay Find isn’t a CSI but it is still V12 powered and rare too. A big selling point for me is that it doesn’t have a grey interior, and though it isn’t a huge amount better it is still easier on the eye.

It comes with service history but no MOT, though it does run and has been garaged during its current ownership period. It’s currently bid up to £2,250 with the reserve not met, but that is still a cheap car.
