BMW 8 series coupe was among the biggest car launches of 2018. There was a lot of hype surrounding the car. Anyway, we are here to discuss the M8. The M8 has carbon highlights on the center console, and there are also M8 badges on the steering wheel and headrests. The car is expected to have 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 with around 600bhp.
Prices and update
The eight series are available to order, and the deliveries have already started. The high-performance M8 is expected to cost around £130,000. The car expected to be released sometime in 2019. We will keep an eye on the update for the coupe.
The eight series replaced the six series as BMW’s range-topping coupe model. The product manager for BMW Sarah Lessmann said that the 8 Series was designed in such a way that it would be “a stand-alone car,” which had its unique design and components.
The car has a little resemblance to the other models in the BMW line-up. The car looks stunning, and I was personally happy with the way it looks. The panels give the model a premium feel, and it also gives it the sporty edge.
The car also has thinner head and tail light designs than the previous BMW models. The spoiler on the car is also smaller, and it kind of merges into the boot lid.
Engine and performance
The entry-level 840d cDrive models have been powered by a turbocharged 3.0 liter straight six engine, which produces 316 bhp and 502lb-ft of torque. The driver gets 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds, and it has a fuel economy or 46. 3mpg.
It is moving to the M850i xDrive variant. This is currently the range-topping variant. It has BMW M5’s 4.4-liter turbo V8 petrol motor, which produces 523bhp and 553lb-ft of torque. The extra power brings a huge drawback in terms of fuel economy at 28.3mpg.
