If you, like me, are a massive fan of George Carlin, one of the greatest comedians to ever have lived, then this is an opportunity of a lifetime: Carlin’s 1996 BMW 850Ci has come up for sale.
I am looking at the 1996 BMW 8 Series brochure in front of me and I see (among many scenes of restrained and technocratic luxury) a grand total of 11 exterior colors, a collection of various subdued grays, greens, blues and reds. But there were other colors. There was ... yellow.
“Sounded way bigger than it looked,” the person who spotted this car on the streets of Munich told us. The giant coupe was heavily camouflaged, but based on the size and silhouette I’m almost positive we’re looking at a prototype of the next BMW 8 Series.
We’ve been waiting patiently for the fantastic 8-series halo car to return to BMW’s lineup. Too patiently. We’ve devolved into madness, drooling over retrowave 8 series videos just to hold us over. But it’s here! It’s finally here! Here is the new M8 GTE race car BMW is taking to the 24 Hours of Le Mans—the marque’s…
Are you sad about BMW’s new robotic-shark looking futurecars? Do you want to go back to a time when technological nonsense was all hot-pink neon instead of sharp and angry? Sit down, turn up, ...and hang on.
BMW is likely already preparing to introduce a four-door version of the new 8 Series shortly after the coupe and convertible models go on sale, which would be great if they didn’t already sell five other stylish luxury sedans or five stylish luxury SUVs.
Despite only just recently getting to see the revival of the BMW 8 Series in concept form, it won’t be too long until we see the real deal, which should be a sweet deal considering what’s been spotted rolling around the Nürburgring lately.
The 8 Series is actually coming back in 2018, and BMW had planned to give internet fanboys who have been dreaming of this for decades a concept design this weekend. Well the weekend is here early, as photos of the concept have allegedly leaked.
The BMW 8 Series is back. Or at least, it will be soon. This is a profoundly odd development for anyone familiar with one of BMW’s most ambitious and fascinating failed experiments, a car that was an expensive high-tech powerhouse yet never reached critical mass. The thing is, the 8 Series is magic. This video shows…
During a BMW meeting today in Munich, the chairman of the BMW board Harald Krüger confirmed that the BMW 8 Series Coupe is slated for arrival in 2018. Today is a very good day.
Rumors of the BMW 8 Series’ Big Comeback ebb and flow, and here’s another one: a two-door version of the big, executive 7-Series could be on the way.
Studies reveal that millions of Americans every month waste time at work on Jalopnik. So where do Jalopnik writers waste their time at work? Bring A Trailer, of course. And when I took a break to ogle this gorgeous 2002 BMW M5, ex-Jalop supremo Matt Hardigree showed me how I can do one better: a Euro-spec 1993 BMW M5…
BMW has been busy collecting 8-Series vehicle monikers with trademark applications including the “M8" title, with a “BMW insider” spilling to Auto Express plans for a luxury GT car to take on the new Mercedes S-Class Coupe.
The car above is a BMW 850i. It has a V12 engine. How did BMW make this vast powerplant? They combined two inline sixes, and this made for one particular peculiarity.
What does it really mean to be a “luxury flagship,” anyway? For BMW in 1989, it meant this: 12 cylinders, two doors, 300 horsepower, a 4,000 pound curb weight, and an aggressive wedge design. This is the 8-Series, and it is one BMW’s best failed experiments.
The late, lamented BMW 8 series was like a coupe version of the top-spec BMW 7 series limousine. Is it really gone, or did it just get a Rolls Royce badge?
As has been expected for some time, BMW is indeed working on a new 8-Series to sit atop the BMW range. Expected to look much like the CS Concept, the coupe-shaped sedan is now reportedly being developed by BMW's special M-division. After all, the 8-Series will be going up against the likes of the Porsche Panamera and…
