Clarion Builds brings the BMW 850Ci into the 21st century



In case you have forgotten, or maybe didn't even know, Clarion Builds unveiled their stunning 1974 BMW 2002 restoration/build. The car was a mix of classic looks and modern performance, very nice. You can read about the 2002 here! The completed car was auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach for a whopping $125k and all that went toward cancer research.

Well, it looks like another project is going to be unveiled really soon, and t's another BMW, a 1993 850Ci. I'm sure this one won't disappoint either. Here's some words from their release:

We are excited now to announce the completion of 1993 BMW 850Ci! This timeless classic was a game-changer for not just BMW, but the automotive industry as it was the first production car featuring a CAN bus architecture, drive-by-wire throttle, and a CAD design just to mention a few of the firsts associated with this icon. Produced in low numbers for its 10-year global run, the 12 cylinder variants of the 8-series are now seen as an appreciating collector's car thanks to its graceful design, Autobahn-bred confidence, and personification of BMW as the Ultimate Driving Machine!

With the expertise and skills of a cast of new and existing program partners, New Century BMW, Michelin, Stop Tech, K&N, Westminster Upholstery, and Coast Motor Werks, just to name a few, we were able to bring this timeless classic into the 21st century!

Stay tuned for details on the Build in the weeks to come! Until then, enjoy a couple pics from their photoshoot.
