1.8 tons of German cutting-edge technology of the 1990s

The BMW 8 series (E31) was much more than merely the successor to the evergreen 6 series (E24). The Gran Turismo was larger, heavier and it was jam-packed with electronic assistance systems and features which were highly exotic 25 years ago – though many have since become commonplace. Then there’s the 12 cylinder engine, something no German Gran Turismo had boasted for half a century. The 8 series was BMW’s flagship model of the 1990s, a supercar that was set to demonstrate what was technically possible.
It failed to sell as expected. The 1990s brought a global recession and the Gulf War. Energy prices soared. Even people who weren’t scared off by the hefty price tag often considered the 850i a bit too far over the top. BMW reacted and brought on an 8-cylinder variant in 1993, the 840 Ci. But even including this model, no more than 31,062 units of the E31 were built over a full decade, so the 8 series has always been a rare sight. Now that the 8 series is on the verge to become a classic, prices have left the vale of tears behind and make the car an promising investment.
