BMW is unveiling the new open-top sports car in luxury segment with ultra-sporty driving properties, distinctive design elegance, driving pleasure and a full-blooded open-top driving experience. It’s the second model in the new BMW 8 Series luxury-class line-up.

The all-new BMW 8 Series Convertible offers an open-air driving pleasure for four people, classical soft-top roof with fully electric, quiet operation, minimised weight and outstanding acoustic comfort. Roof opens and closes in 15 seconds at the touch of a button and when travelling at up to 50 km/h (31 mph). Soft-top in Black is standard and the new Anthracite Silver effect will be available as an option.

BMW is planning the market launch in March 2019 with two model variants: BMW M850i xDrive with 390 kW/530 hp V8 engine and BMW 840d xDrive Convertible with six-cylinder in-line diesel engine and 235 kW/320 hp. Both engine variants meet Euro 6d-TEMP exhaust standard. Power transfer by eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive. Driving Experience Control switch with ADAPTIVE mode. Clearly noticeable difference in car set-up between COMFORT and ECO Pro modes at one end of the spectrum and SPORT / SPORT+ modes at the other.
