Today is the 20th Launch Anniversary of the E31 platform, or better known as the BMW 8 Series. With much fanfare and anticipation, the BMW 8 Series was introduced to an enthusiastic crowd at the IAA Frankfurt Auto Show.
The success of the 8 Series was at first measured by the number of orders received from dealers and customers. Production slots for the 8 Series were sold out until early 1992.
Following the show, BMW AG arranged an unprecedented and impressive collection of media tours and sales training to showcase its newest model. BMW AG invited German television to do a documentary on 8er by sharing exclusive inside information about the development of the 8er.
The Countdown clock is now reset for the 25th Launch Anniversary of the 8er, September 7, 2014.
