The long-awaited next-generation 8 Series returns with the reveal its final production form and it's every bit as handsome as we hoped it would be. Back after 20 years, the sleek coupe will launch with two models: the M850i xDrive and a diesel-powered M840d xDrive for Europe.
The M850i xDrive will be powered by the latest generation of their TwinPower Turbo V8 engine. This engine will produce 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, which will et it from 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and is limited to a top speed of 155 mph. The engine will be complemented with an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission that is lighter, more efficient, and has smoother shifting.
The car will also feature the slimmest headlights of any BMW, a new single-piece kidney grille design, optional carbon fiber enhancements, slim LED taillights, and an M rear spoiler. The interior will be loaded with tech such as a standard head-up display, BMW's Live Cockpit Professional digital instrument cluster, a Bowers and Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System, and a digital key system that lets you start and unlock your car with your NFC-enabled smartphone.
