1983 BMW 745i Turbo 4-Door Saloon LHD (LHD produced only).
Silverwood have enormous pleasure in offering a unique specification and extremely special E23 745iTurbo. Stand-out spec includes Hartge three piece split rim alloy wheels, leather Scheel Mann interior and Nakamichi HiFi system.
German produced in 1983, this example was manufactured in European specification and exported to SoCal BeeEm Dietel Enterprises, who were also official Alpina distributors. The car has resided in California for the majority of its life, which has superbly preserved the phenomenal condition it is in.
The Alpine White original paintwork is in incredible condition and displays a very rich, deep shine. There is no evidence of any corrosion anywhere or any previous repairs or rectification work. All panel gaps are correct and true.
Wheels & Tyres
genuine Hartge rims in stunning condition are 8.5x17 at the front and 9.5x17 at the rear. They beautifully compliment the look and feel of the car.
Scheel Mann seats, leather finished, offer amazing comfort and aesthetics. The wood finish is beautifully coloured and give the car a wonderful period with "edge" feel. All carpets and door cards are in remarkable condition and the fit and finish is all very pleasing and correct. the steering wheel is a period BMW Motorsport item that is suede finished with the "M" tri-colour stitching.
Engine & Transmission
the engine was recently fully stripped, re-sealed and re-built as well as a full turbo re-build. Water pump, belts and hoses are all new, with the starter motor and alternator recently re-built. All brake calipers have been refurbished with new stainless steel piping. A 2:93:1 limited slip diff puts the power down. The gearbox has been fully re-built with upgraded valving, and the four speeds shift extremely smoothly.
The Nakamichi system is powered by a high quality amp, sub and upgraded speaker system, and give a very pleasing acoustic experience.
Behind the Wheel
The Scheel Mann seats and suede finished Motorsport steering wheel give a strong sense of occasion. Firing the engine up gives a very reassuring exhaust burble. Once you have selected Drive, the 7 can easily bumble along with minimal fuss, however once throttle is applied the torque simply floods in and you're propelled forward and pushed firmly back in your seat with a huge feeling of exhilaration.
The 7 handles very well indeed with all rebuilt shockers and recent replacement front control arms and rear wishbones. ST adjustable anti-roll bars also offer a customisable set up.
the E23 model featuring the M106 Drivetrain is a rare find and to find one in this condition and specification is almost unheard of. Likely to appeal to the serious BMW collector or one wanting rarity. Probably the best of it's type, this 7 will offer exclusivity and an extreme pride of ownership experience to the next very fortunate owner.
