Will an E31 BMW 850i become a collectable?

Will an E31 BMW 850i become a collectable? Is it a good investment to buy now?

Fabulous cruisers. Things got a bit more interesting when the manual gearbox and M-technic suspension were offered, but it perhaps never quite made it to the status of a proper driver's car. The CSi version is already in demand, with last year seeing some very high prices for them. This could be driven perhaps by BMW re-launching model and/or younger buyers coming to market. We'd always advocate buying a car because you like it - rather than as an investment.
