BMW has just officially released the 8 Series Convertible that has been anticipated for a long time. This will be the second 8 series model in the new lineup, and the only time BMW has offered an 8 Series convertible ever. The new luxurious four-seater convertible will use a classic soft top roof that can be opened or closed in just 15 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h. The new 8 Series convertible will come in Black as standard, or Anthracite Silver for an extra cost.
BMW will offer two different models at launch, the BMW 840d xDrive Convertible and the BMW M850i xDrive Convertible. The BMW 840d xDrive Convertible will be powered by a 6 cylinder diesel engine that will produce 320hp, compared to the V8 530hp BMW M850i xDrive Convertible which will go 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h.
We are expecting to see the BMW 8 Series Convertible arrive at dealerships sometime in early 2019. Prices have not been released as of yet, but don’t expect either model to be cheap. Until then, enjoy the photos below of the all new BMW 8 Series Convertible.
