Interesting Grey-Market Super Sedan. But Look Closely

1986 BMW 745i

Before turning to big V8s and V12s for their larger sedans, BMW used a turbocharged six-cylinder in the 7-series E23 chassis. At least in Europe..where this car originated before sneaking into the US when nearly new. The claimed 295hp from the turbo six sounds quite impressive.

However, take a closer look at the photos. This car has no front or rearĀ glass, and needs some bodywork as well. It seems to be missing one of the gorgeous BBS gold mesh alloys as well. The car could potentially be a nightmare to put right..but it should be a rewarding project.

It’s on eBay on Staten Island for $3800 or offer.
