BMW presented the new most luxurious coupe in its range in Le Mans. As it was expected, the production version has a more conventional and less avant-garde design than the same concept from 2017 concept.
After a year of waiting, BMW has unveiled the new Series 8 Coupe, which will be available to customers in the beginning in two versions, one with petrol engine and one with diesel engine.. Like all classic big coupes, and BMW car features a long hood, and the new model has a lowered „nose“ and an aggressive front with a wide bumper and slightly beveled headlights.
Vehicle rear is characterizes by large trapezoid exhaust pipes fitted into the mass diffuser. LED headlamps come as standard, and customers can also order BMW’s futuristic laser headlights. The interior is also slightly different compared to the last year’s concept, but BMW still retained two large digital displays – one 10.3 inch, placed in front of the driver instead of a conventional, analog instrument table, and the other 12.3 inch that serves the multimedia vehicle system.
Among additional options there are wireless smartphone charger and Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system. At the beginning of the sale, the M850i xDrive will be available with a 4.4-bi-turbo V8 engine, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
This generator delivers 530 hp (390 kW) and 750 Nm of maximum torque. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in only 3.7 seconds, and the maximum speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. BMW did not give up on diesel engines, so buyers who decide for this option will be able to purchase the 840d xDrive version with a regular six-cylinder 3.0 bi-turbo engine producing 320 hp (235 kW) and 680 Nm. In this case, the power is transferred to the wheels using an eight-speed automatic.
