2018 marked the return of a BMW icon: the 8 Series. For this reinterpretation of a classic, BMW has sought to combine its racing heritage with a luxury coupé and convertible design. It was developed alongside the BMW M8 GTE race car, the first time that BMW M Motorsport have developed a car alongside production engineers. The result is true sporting luxury and worthy of the '8' badge.
The low, wide stance of the 8 Series with its long sloping roof line and aggressive front grille design are true to the “elegant racer” ethos adopted by BMW. Large air intakes and huge vents behind the front wheels offer an incredible road stance while improving air flow. Inside the cabin, the wide centre stack is reminiscent of the 1990 original 8 Series, but housing the latest technology and made from the most exquisite materials.
Powering the 8 Series is an uncompromising 530hp 4.4-litre V8 twin turbo petrol. Sprinting from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds, this racing derived power plant offers blistering performance and supreme cruising ability. Power is fed to a specially-tuned version of BMW’s xDrive system via an M Sport differential that provides maximum traction on corner exits.
Sitting at the top of the BMW lineup, the 8 Series is packed with all the latest technology, driver aids and safety features that you would expect - from the very latest iDrive infotainment system to intelligent braking and traction systems.
