The BMW 8 Series manufactured by BMW from 1989 to 1999. The BMW 8 Series is a Grand Tourer powered by either a V8 or V12 engine. In 1991, When it replaced the original E24 based 6 Series, a common misunderstanding is that the 8 Series was produced as a successor. It was actually an entirely new class, with a substantially higher price and better performance than the 6 series. In early September 1989 at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), the 8 Series was introduced.
The design of the 8 Series began in 1984, with the final design phase and production development starting in 1986. BMW used CAD tools, still unusual at the time, to design the car's all-new body. Combined with wind tunnel testing, the resulting car had a drag coefficient of 0.29, a major improvement from the previous BMW M6/635CSi's 0.39. The 8 Series was the first car to feature CAN bus—a form of multiplex wiring for cars that is now an industry standard and was also one of the first vehicles to be fitted with an electronic drive-by-wire throttle and was one of BMW's first cars, together with the Z1, to use a multi-link rear axle. The 8 Series supercar included the first V-12 engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox on a road car.
