A couple of videos on the subject.






I haven't been able to find info on when BMW put brake override on all their cars.

EDIT: I just found this.

BMW

BMW originated the electronic throttle pedal or “drive-by-wire” system in the 1988 BMW 750iL. By 1994 all BMW products sold in the United States had electronic throttle pedals. Since the very first system in 1988, every BMW Group electronic throttle system (including BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce) has incorporated a brake override feature. The brake override feature is installed on all transmission versions: automatic, manual, sequential manual gearbox (SMG) and dual-clutch transmission (DCT).
