It should come as no surprise to you that BMW is cooking up an M8 to accompany the newly returned 8 Series. After all, ///M now colloquially stands for Money, so that’s why we need to ///M all of the things. Here are some preliminary details about it.
We saw the leaked press photos on Wednesday, but here it is: The 2019 BMW 8 Series convertible. Same pretty face as the hardtop, same pretty lines, just no roof. I’m not usually one for convertibles, but this one is quite, quite nice.
I knew the recently resurrected 2019 BMW 8 Series would be huge and opulent. I was not expecting it to be as fast and as good on the track as it is. This nice surprise was revealed to us by our tame racing driver Robb Holland, who hustled an M850i around Portugal’s Autódromo do Estoril.
Sure, the new 2019 BMW 8 Series doesn’t have a manual anymore, or a V12, or pop-up headlights. But it does do zero to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, and was a mere two seconds off our man Robb Holland’s Estoril lap time in an M5. This is all to say it seems pretty fast and awesome, and soon you’ll be able to experience…
Just like how Clark Kent and Superman are never in the same place at the same time, the 2019 BMW M850i xDrive shows up on the scene shortly after the 6 Series departs. Coincidence? Is the 8 Series just a replacement for the venerable 6 or, like Superman, something far more special?
The revival of the BMW 8 Series coupe is a large and stunning creature, slotting in as BMW’s top grand tourer when it debuted in June. But even after that debut, here’s a camouflage-wrapped 8 Series rolling around in the Mojave Desert—one with a soft top, which the original 8 Series from the ’90s never had.
In 1987, BMW announced to the world that it was officially not screwing around anymore when it put a 5.0-liter V12 into production, setting a 300-horsepower standard for luxury and refinement. It was only a few years later that BMW would produce probably the ultimate V12, the 618-horsepower heart of the McLaren F1.…
We’ve finally welcomed the return of the BMW 8 Series, with attractive styling that isn’t quite as exciting as the classic model but still looks good. None of that will matter soon, as these patent renderings of an 8 Series Gran Coupe are going to ruin everything.
We’ve all been dreaming of the day we could pair our love for BMW’s newest grand tourer with the nation that brought us the smooth tunes of the saxophone. It’s finally come, as BMW of Belgium’s configurator for the new 8 Series is live.
Here it is, officially: The 2019 BMW 8 Series Coupe. We’ve been waiting a long time for this thing to show its face and, my God, does it look good.
I know leaked images are always pretty exciting, but, to be fair, this car has already proven to be leakier than the radiators in any liquid-cooled car I seem to own. First we got a big hint at the look of the resurrected 8 Series via the concept, we’ve seen the test mules, and at the beginning of the year, we saw…
A prototype of the soon-to-be-unveiled BMW 8 Series coupe was involved in a serious crash in Bavaria on Saturday, killing the passenger.
I have a thing for road cars turned race cars. They’re like the ultimate form of what you see in dealerships and on the street. They’re like as good as the basic car design can be. And that’s what makes this BMW M8 GTE interesting. Inside every 8 Series road car we can expect to see soon lives this version that sounds…
The impending second coming of the BMW 8 Series grand touring car will be lead by the (presumed 2019) BMW M850i xDrive Coupe, which the company says will feature four-wheel drive, a locking rear differential (what is this, a dang truck?) and 530 horsepower.
Here’s a good idea. Do you own a BMW 8 series? Or are you interested in buying the new one? Take it in the dirt!
Seriously, that’s not me saying that. That’s BMW saying it in the very first line of their press release for the BMW M8 Gran Coupe, which is a four-door sedan based off of the new M8:
If you zoom in on the teaser picture BMW just released, you’ll see that there are lines for two doors. As in, two doors per side. Which means this is most certainly a sedan. Probably the 8 Series sedan. The chances that BMW will call it a “Gran Coupe” seem dangerously high. Can we knock it off with that already?
