Design of the first generation 8 Series, the E31, began in 1984, with final design phase and production development starting in 1986. The vehicle debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) in early September 1989 and was in production until 1999. The 8 Series was designed to move beyond the market of the original E24 6 Series, with greater performance and an even higher purchase price. The 8 Series offered the first V-12 engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox on a road car. It was also one of the first vehicles to be fitted with an electronic drive-by-wire throttle. The 8 Series was one of BMW's first cars, together with the Z1, to use a multi-link rear axle.
