2018 - 1999
The 8 Series was introduced in 1990 under the E31 model code and was only available as a two-door coupÃ©. It is powered by a range of naturally aspirated V8 and V12 petrol engines. The E31 started production just as E24 6 Series production ended, however it is not considered a direct successor. It was later discontinued in 1999 due to poor sales.
