More than 20 years ago BMW originally introduced the 8 Series— a powerful two-door Grand Tourer designed to traverse continents with stunning speed while swaddling its occupants in luxury and technology. Now BMW has resurrected the 8 Series to continue its original mission.
Launching this fall, the new 8 Series has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate Grand Tourer, and will compete head-to-head with the likes of the Lexus LC500 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe.
Its distinctive looks will surely garner admiring looks as you cruise down Whyte Avenue or park in the Ice District. Long and low-slung, the new 8 Series is unmistakably a BMW no matter what angle you view it from. Its design also hints at the power lurking underneath that gorgeous sloping hood.
Initially launching in a single trim level, the 8 Series will be available as the M850i xDrive, which makes use of a 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 and a sport-tuned xDrive system to deliver a consistent 0-100km/h run of 3.6 seconds. Making 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, this engine along with the M Sport differential and 20-inch high-performance wheels will make short work of any twisty road.
The new 8 Series also receives a bespoke interior with luxury accoutrements like an 11-speaker sound system, a 12.3-inch centre console display screen, and wireless smartphone charging amongst many other items. Add in the liberal use of luxurious materials like aluminum, carbon fibre, magnesium, and leather and you have an interior that will keep you comfortable even on a long trip down to British Columbia.
