Today we take a trip into the BMW history to take a look at a classic ad from 1990. The old school video shows BMW’s V12 engine and its placement in the 850i model.

The 5 liter M70B50 V12 engine producing 300 PS (221 kW; 296 hp) was unveiled in 1990 and it was available with either a 4-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox. Top speed was limited to 186 mph.

The 850i included Automatic Stability Control (ASC), which limited power to the rear wheels when wheel slippage was detected during acceleration. The manual version came with a different feature: ASC + T; which also applied brakes to the rear wheels to restore traction.

The 850i was the first model to use BMW’s new Seat-Integrated Belt system, which integrated the belt system into the seat instead of anchoring it to the floor and/or roof pillar.

Between 1989 and 1992, there were 20,072 produced.
