Sure they are a little heavy...I think their curb weight was right around 4200lbs, but the v12 pushes out over 400 lb ft of torque...more than enough to push it around. It also looks a helluva lot better than anything Bangle has come up with.

Agree

They are maintnance nightmares though...and not too reliable. Either way a great car.

one of 100? C'mon, I've seen more than that many 95 850's Just in Jersey!

A porker, yes, but more of a GT than a sports car.

The CSI is essentially an "M" model of the 850s. They are extremely rare.

I'v been blessed with the opportunity to sit see, touch, smell, feel, and yes, sit in an 850. 6 speed, 5.6 liter V12... wow. Wow...

The biggest problem with the 850is the tranny. You should never idle it for more than a minute in park because there is no lubrication happening. :thumbdown

And that is a crazy price IMO. I would much rather have a 928 for a GT cruiser. Oh yeah, I did have 928 for a GT cruiser :biglaugh:
