1994 BMW 8 Series

The BMW 8 Series was introduced in 1990 as a two-door coupe and came equipped with a range of naturally aspirated V8 and V12 engines. Although it is not considered a direct successor, production began of the 8 Series E31 just as the E24 6 Series was coming to an end. The first generation of the E31 8 Series lasted until 1999 when it was discontinued due to poor sales. The name was revived in 2018 with the second generation G15 8 Series.

The BMW 8 Series made its debut in 1989 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It was one of the first vehicles to use an electronic drive-by-wire throttle and was the first road car to offer a V12 engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

The 1994 BMW 8 Series was a luxury, high-performance coupe that was available with either a V8 or V12 engine. Pricing ranged from $68,000 - $98,500. There were three versions available, the V8-powered 840Ci and the 12-cylinder 850Ci and 850CSi. The 850CSi produced 372 horsepower and was fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox. Just 111 examples were produced for 1984. The 850Ci displaced 304 cubic-inches and produced just under 300 horsepower. BMW produced 173 850Ci units for 1994.

The dual overhead cam six-cylinder engine displaced 183 cubic-inches and produced 282 horsepower.
