The Arrows A8 was a Formula One car which the Arrows team used to compete in the 1985 and 1986 Formula One seasons. It was powered by the BMW M12 turbocharged engine looked after by Swiss engine guru Heini Mader.

The A8 placed 8th in the 1985 Constructors' Championship on 14 points which included a podium finish for Thierry Boutsen at Imola where he placed 3rd but was later moved to 2nd when winner Alain Prost's McLaren was disqualified for being underweight. This proved to be the A8's high point as it was never again driven to a podium finish.

Arrows and the aging A8 could only place 10th in the Constructors' Championship final standings in 1986 with Christian Danner scoring a point for 6th place at the 1986 Austrian Grand Prix.
