Commentary
  • This was a rarely used color.
  • The Sultan of Brunei liked this color and ordered three RHD M70 850i's in this color; all with black interiors (Schwarz, code 0226).
  • There were five Vulkan Grey M70 850i 6spd manuals built in this color.
  • There were only two Vulkan Grey M70 850i 6spd's and one M60 830Ci prototype that had the 850CSi M Sport Suspension.
  • The last Vulkan Grey 8 Series built was the protoytype M60 830Ci, a 218hp 8 Series, chassis CC40003. There were 13 automatic transmission and 5 6spd manual cars that were evaluated for BMW production. BMW abandoned the program to come up with a low hp and destroyed all the prototypes.
  • Of the 19 Vulkangrau vehicles produced, 7 of them were used by BMW Engineering and Development for testing. These 7 cars came with special research monitoring equipment. The remaining 12 cars were retailed.
