When I was nevertheless a teenaged auto crack couple of autos held the interest of the first BMW 8 Series. Presented in 1989, the 8 Series, particularly the V-12-engined 850s, was really seen as a definitive in Ultimate Driving Machines. Without a doubt, the heartlessly entangled M70 12-chamber gauged (around) a ton, and the autos were excessively extravagance arranged; except if you had the super-uncommon 850CSi, the 8s weren’t actually donning. In any case, regardless, as even the eight-barrel autos were tremendously attractive and tuned in to the occasions. What might Gordon Gekko drive? An 8 Series. Duh. At any rate until the subsidence of the mid-1990s. With the conceivable special case of the i8, BMW hasn’t had a real radiance auto since the OG 8, and I say the brand has endured thus. Quick forward to now: BMW is propelling a pristine 8 Series to attempt to get a portion of that swaggering, ace of-the-universe magic back.
