The First Factory 8er

CB00000's 20th Anniversary is coming July 28, 2009.

BMW AG's first production 8er occurred on July 28, 1989, with chassis CB00000.  It rolled off the Dingolfing, Bavaria factory assembly line with little fanfare because it was a test run.  Although there were other BMW 850 prototypes produced prior to July, 1989, this particular vehicle was the very first factory revenue 8er vehicle.
