The four-spoke steering wheel is in great condition, as is the instrument panel, center console and the shift lever. Completing the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo.The 840Ci was available with a five-speed automatic transmission, though European cars were given the option of a six-speed manual transmission. The only external features distinguishing the V-8 model from the V12 models were the quad round exhausts, which were square in the V-12 models. The 840Ci stayed in production until May 1999.Almost $1 billion was spent on developing the car. BMW usedcomputer-aided design (CAD) tools, still unusual at the time, to design the car's all-new body. Combined with wind tunnel testing, the resulting car had adrag c fficient of 0.29, a major improvement from the previousBMW 6-series and 635CSis 0.39.The 8 Series offered the first V-12 engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox on a road car. It was 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 to use a multi-linkrear axle.While CAD modeling allowed the car's unibody to be eight pounds lighter than that of its predecessor, the car was significantly heavier when completed due to the large engine and added luxury itemsa source of criticism from those who wanted BMW to concentrate on the driving experience. Some of the car's weight may have been due to its pillarless hardtop body style, which lacked a B post.Sales of the 8 Series were affected by the global recession of the early 1990s, the Persian Gulf War and energy price spikes. BMW pulled the 8 Series from the North American market in 1997, having sold only 7,232 cars over seven years. BMW continued production for Europe until 1999.
