Our friends at Autoblog are featuring on their home page an article on a 1991 BMW 8 Series CONVERTIBLE, yes, you read that right. The 850i that was never built as a convertible model as well. The ’91 850i custom made convertible belongs to Erik Williams, offensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys back in their glory days, has a sticker price of $25,900. 

The beautiful, classy 850i received a customer treatment and was turned into an one of a kind 8 Series convertible. Despite the little imperfections when it comes to the customer soft top, the 850Ci in these photos is unique and the first 8 Series convertible I have seen so far. 

So, if you’re a car collector and looking for absolute unique, classy vehicles, this one might be for you, but be careful, the maintenance fees are known to be atrocious on the 8 Series, think…..close to a down payment on a new car.

    It´s not only one of it´s kind. There is a company Koenig that was building cabrio version for many years. Even BMW itself presented 850i at the 1989 Frankfurt Motorshow. Three prototype examples were constructed, fitted with the same 300 bhp V12 engine that powered the coupe. Unfortunately BMW were not convinced there would be enough customers interested in open top 8-series and cancelled the program.
