The 8 and 12 cylinder BMW 8
Series cars are some of the most beautiful sports coupes ever built.
Find out more here about these magnificent machines!
The E31 was introduced to replace the six
series, a car which
had been in production from 1976 to 1989. The 850i was at least 50% more
expensive and had a 5.0 liter V12 instead of the 3.5 inline six used by its
predecessor. The 850i was BMW's challenger in the top end of the luxury coupe
market. The 850i was introduced in 1990 and was phased out in 1999. The 840 was
introduced in 1992 and made until 1999. The E31 was the first BMW to have the Z
axle rear suspension, Multi-Information Display (MID), traction control, dynamic
stability control, electrically adjustable shock absorbers, and more. The 850CSi
was the top of the line. It had a 5.6 V12, courtesy of the Motorsport
department. The E31 was introduced with the 5.0 V12 from the E32 750i. In 1992
the 4.0 V8 was introduced. The 4.4 which replaced it had the same power output
but more torque.
