rear lights on the Z8

The Z8's lights are very unique... are they bulb lights, found on regular cars, or something different? they don't seem to be normal, and don't seem to be LEDs like on the 745i. Does anyone know what kind of light they use?

The Z8 has neon tubes, no blubs on the front turn indictors and the rear parking brakes.
