BMW 8 Series
BMW 8 Series is a Coupe available in a price range of ₹ 1.31 - 1.57 Crore. It is available in 2 variants, 1 engine option. Other key specifications of the 8 Series include a Ground Clearance of 128 mm, Kerb Weight of 1875 kg and Bootspace of 440 litres. The 8 Series is available in 12 colours. The mileage of 8 Series is 11.3 kmpl.

BMW unveiled the 8-Series Coupe at Le Mans 24 hours last year. The model is currently offered in international markets in four variants including the 8 Series Coupe, 8 Series Convertible, 8 Series Gran Coupe and the M8.

Produced at the company’s plant in Dingolfing, Germany, the BMW 8 Series is the spiritual successor to the 6 Series. The BMW 8 Series is produced using lightweight construction, a process that involves a mix of materials such as steel, plastic, aluminium and carbon fibre in the body-shell of the model.

Globally the 8 Series from BMW is offered with two engine options. The M850i will be powered by a 4.4-litre, eight cylinder petrol engine that is capable of producing 530bhp and 750 Nm of torque. The 840d will be powered by a 3.0-litre, six cylinder diesel motor that produces 320bhp and 680 Nm of torque.

BMW 8 Series

Broadly, the 8 Series replaces the 6 Series. But it gets a new number because it's grander than that. Also, the number 6 now resides on the rump of a big practical hatchback, the 6 Series Gran Turismo.

Really though, in the traditional and proper sense of the term, a Gran Turismo isn't a bulky five-door, it's a swish-looking coupe. That's to say the 8 Series.

Repeating the history of the old 6 Series, the 8 launches with petrol and diesel two-door coupes, and then the range gets populated by convertibles, and four-door Gran Coupes.

There will be an M8 version of each of those bodies. Lick your lips.

Outside, the 8 Series coupe wears the stentorian new face of BMW, more angular and big-grilled than ever – though the grille has active shutters and is actually blanked off most of the time for drag reasons, opening only when the engine gets sweaty at low speed. The sides are sculpted and chiselled and the rear shoulders broad. The roof can optionally be specced in carbonfibre, and it has a double-bubble section. It tapers downwards almost from the top of the windscreen.

Fine elements in themselves. But to our eyes the bulky nose and tail deny it the grace of some rivals. Still, you can't argue with the drama of those low, wide, broad-shouldered proportions.

Underneath, BMW has thrown its best tech at it. The M8 will get the mighty M V8, but for the moment there's a 'ordinary' V8 that makes a slightly extraordinary 530bhp. The other option is the 840d, a 3.0-litre six.

Whatever the engine, all wheels are both driven and steered as standard, and the damping is adaptive. For good measure the test M850i had optional active anti-roll too. All four of those systems alter their thresholds in harmony as you switch to the sport modes.

The body contains carbon fibre as well as aluminium and steel – it's related to the multi-material 7 Series. Even so, overall weight hovers around 1,900kg for the V8 version.

BMW says this is a sports car, but to us it looks like a GT. There's no shame in that. Pity the new 6 Series has burgled those initials though.

Anyway, in the past the number 8 has meant a big deal for a BMW. The 850CSi and Z8 became cherished. The i8 surely will too. But looking at the new 8 Series, and especially peering into its 3 Series-alike cabin, we wonder if it's distinctive enough from the rest of the BMW range.  Let's see if there's much distinction in how it acts.

What's the verdict?

“If you *really* like BMWs, then the 8 Series is great. But it's less special than its rivals”

The people who developed the 8 Series did a very good job. It's across-the-board competent. The problem lies not in its execution but its concept.

Owning a BMW, even a top-dog BMW, doesn't scale social mountains to the same altitude as owning a Bentley. That in essence is the trouble with the M850i, as, with a few options, it costs not a whole lot less than a Continental GT V8.

If you really like BMWs that's fine. Because it's not greatly different from the rest of the BMWs. Just more and better of the same. BMW does do a forward-looking 8, the i8. The 8 Series is less fun that that, and rather backward-looking despite all the technology.

You could argue the 8 Series' rivals from other car makers are similarly traditional in outlook, but they're more special because the roads aren't clogged with their cheaper relatives.

BMW 8 Series review

Once you’ve chosen a body style and engine, BMW makes life relatively simple because there are no trim grade options beyond those imposed by your engine choice. 840i and 840d models come only in M Sport guise, while the M850i versions are effectively a model in their own right. Naturally equipment levels are lavish even on M Sport cars, but BMW will try to upsell you into a range of expensive add-on packages. These include the Visibility Pack for laser headlamp upgrades, the M Sport Pro pack for 20-inch alloy wheels and dark chrome exterior finishes, the Comfort Plus Pack for features including heated armrests, ventilated seats and electric window blinds, and the Technology Pack which includes a 1,400 Watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system, a full package of active driver assistance features, on-board video recording and Parking Assistant Plus. The £22,000 Ultimate Pack includes all of the above, plus additional features such as a TV receiver and a carbon roof - as long as you haven’t already selected the optional panoramic glass roof.

While the BMW 8 Series offers a distinct blend of comfort and sportiness that sets it apart, it enters a market that’s not short of rivals when it comes to expensive GT models. With list prices starting from around £73,000 for the cheapest Gran Coupe four-door to almost £134,000 for the M8 Competition convertible, the roster of potential competitors includes the sportiest of rivals such as the Porsche 911, along with more relaxed offerings like theLexus LC and Mercedes S-Class Coupe.

The Gran Coupe goes head-to-head with the Audi A7 Sportback and Mercedes CLS. All 8 Series get an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all bar the 840i feature xDrive four-wheel drive.

Inside BMW’s own range there’s not much that comes close, although as you’d expect the latest BMW 7 Series saloon is the source of much of the 8 Series’ technology. Buyers looking for ultimate luxury might consider the larger BMW X7 SUV, while those wanting sporty thrills will arguably be better satisfied behind the wheel of a BMW M4 or M5.

This isn’t the first time BMW has rolled out the 8 Series badge of course, and many enthusiasts will have fond memories of the late 1990s variant. That too was a big, excitingly styled coupe offering impressive performance without being excessively sporty, and it’s perhaps surprising that BMW has taken so long to produce a follow-up.

Predecessor

The second-generation of the BMW 8 Series consists of the BMW G14 (convertible version), BMW G15 (two-door coupe version) grand tourers and BMW G16 (four-door "Gran Coupe" fastback sedan version) executive car. The G14/G15/G16 generation has been in production since 2018, and is often collectively referred to as the G15.

It is the successor to the BMW 6 Series range and marks the return of the BMW 8 Series nameplate after nearly two decades.[1]

The G15 is powered by turbocharged six-cylinder petrol, six-cylinder diesel and V8 petrol engines. All models have all-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The M8 models (designated F91/F92/F93) were unveiled in 2019 and are powered by the twin-turbocharged BMW S63 V8 petrol engine.

Development and launch[edit]

The 8 Series is based on the BMW Concept 8 Series that debuted at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este,[2] and featured a new design language and iteration of the iDrive system.[3] The production version was officially unveiled at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 15, 2018.[4] The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupé was later introduced at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show,[5] and is a high-performance four-door variant of the 8 Series which was unveiled in June 2019.[6]

The 8 Series utilises a double-wishbone front suspension and rear multi-link suspension.[7] The car uses BMW's Carbon Core technology, integrating carbon-fibre within its chassis.[8] GPS navigation data is used for the 8-speed automatic transmission to predict upshifts or downshifts when approaching a junction,[9] and cameras along with sensors are utilised to determine appropriate shutdowns for the engine start-stop system.[10]

The convertible version of the 8 Series (G14) was launched in November 2018. The convertible features a folding cloth roof that operates in 15 seconds and can function up to 50 km/h (31 mph). Changes over the coupé include; new cross struts, new panels for the underbody and aluminium roll over bars for added safety. Initial models for the convertible include the M850i xDrive and 840d xDrive. The convertible weighs an additional 100 kg (220 lb) more than the coupé.[11]

Sales of the 8 Series commenced in November 2018.[12]

The Gran Coupé version of the 8 Series was announced in June 2019 and went on sale in September 2019. It has the same powertrains as the coupé and convertible, but it is the first 8 Series available with a six-cylinder engine for the United States.[13]

Body and chassis[edit]

The production model is based on the modular CLAR platform and has a design largely unchanged from the Concept 8 Series.[14] The wheelbase of the Gran Coupe is 201 mm (7.9 in) longer than the coupe and convertible models.[13]

The official kerb weight (measured using the EU methodology) for the 850i xDrive is 1,965 kg (4,332 lb) for the coupe version and 2,090 kg (4,608 lb) for the convertible version.[15][16] The kerb weight for the 840d xDrive is 1,890 kg (4,167 lb) coupe version and 2,030 kg (4,475 lb) for the convertible version.[15][16]

Equipment[edit]

Standard equipment includes the xDrive all-wheel drive system, an 8-speed ZF 8HP torque-converter automatic transmission,[17]Vernasca leather, a heads-up display, adaptive suspension, power steering, and split folding rear seats.[18] The 8 Series also features a 260 mm (10 in) display with iDrive 178 and 312 mm (7.0 and 12.3 in) digital instrument cluster.[19] The M850i xDrive receives 20-inch wheels as standard and aerodynamic elements such as larger air intakes and a front lip spoiler.[20]

Available options includes Microsoft Office 365 and Skype for Business integration, laser headlights,[21] a display key fob, and a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System.[22]Near field communication can also be used to unlock the car via a smartphone. An M Sport package is also available on the 840d xDrive model and features 19-inch alloy wheels, an enhanced braking system, and a re-designed sports steering wheel.[23]

The 850i xDrive is available worldwide, while the 840d xDrive is only available in Europe.[24]

All 8 series models can be fitted with M Performance Parts. These include a sport steering wheel, M rims and carbon fibre parts.

BMW 8 Series

Motor vehicle

The BMW 8 Series is a range of grand tourer coupes and convertibles produced by BMW.

The 8 Series was introduced in 1990 under the E31 model code and was only available as a two-door coupé.[1] It is powered by a range of naturally aspirated V8 and V12petrol engines.[2] The E31 started production just as E24 6 Series production ended, however it is not considered a direct successor.[3] The E31 was discontinued in 1999 due to poor sales.[4]

The model range was later reintroduced in 2018 with the second generation, G15 8 Series.[5] It launched in coupé (G15), convertible (G14), and four-door Gran Coupé (G16) body styles, as the successor to the F06/F12/F13 6 Series lineup.[6] The G15 8 Series introduces an inline-sixdiesel engine,[7][8] and a high-performance BMW M8 trim later joined the lineup as well as the luxury inspired Alpina B8.[9]

First generation (E31; 1990–1999)[edit]

Main article: BMW 8 Series (E31)

BMW 840Ci

Design work of the first generation E31 8 Series began in 1984, with final design phase and production development starting in 1986. The car debuted at the 1989 Frankfurt Motor Show, and was produced until 1999.[10] The 8 Series was designed to move beyond the market of the original E24 6 Series, featuring greater performance and an increased price. The 8 Series was the first road car to offer a V12 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and was one of the first vehicles to be fitted with electronic drive-by-wire throttle.[11] The 8 Series was also among one of BMW's first cars to use a multi-link rear axle.[12]

Second generation (G14/G15/G16; 2018–present)[edit]

Main article: BMW 8 Series (G15)

BMW 840d

The BMW 8 Series (G14) was announced on June 15, 2018 with sales commencing from November 2018.[13] It was initially available as a coupé (codenamed G15), with the convertible (G14) and four-door Gran Coupé (G16) variants introduced later, succeeding the F06/F12/F13 6 Series lineup.[14] Production commenced in late 2018 at the BMW assembly plant in Dingolfing, Germany.[15]

Direct competitors to the BMW 8 Series coupé and convertible are the Mercedes-Benz S-Class coupé & cabriolet. The BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé which has improved rear passenger space dimensions compared to the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé (F06),[16] is seen as a flashier sportier alternative to its platform-mate, the more traditional BMW 7 Series sedan, and is expected to compete with the rumored next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class four-door coupé.[17][18][19][20]

Overview

The 2022 BMW 8-series coupe and convertible are positioned as the most extravagant two-door models in the company's portfolio. With aggressive proportions and sinewy sheetmetal, both body styles have notable curbside presence, even if neither is as fancy as, say, the Lexus LC. Still, BMW endows each with a beautiful interior that is exquisitely appointed and impeccably built. While its tiny back seat exists as a courtesy, anyone who needs more passenger space can opt for the 8-series Gran Coupe sedan (reviewed separately). Power comes from two excellent sources: a 335-hp turbocharged straight-six (840i) or a 523-hp twin-turbo V-8 (M850i). Regardless of the powertrain, the 2022 8-series coupe and convertible have surprising agility for their size and a genuinely serene ride quality.

What's New for 2022?

For 2022, BMW makes the M Sport package standard on the six-cylinder 840i coupe and convertible. The package previously cost $4550 and includes 19-inch wheels, an aerodynamic body kit, dark exterior trim, a M steering wheel, multifunction seats, and upgraded brakes. Not only do the six-cylinder models come with more and better standard equipment, both body styles also get $3000 shaved off their starting price.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

We prefer the prodigious power of the all-wheel-drive-only M850i, with its 523-hp twin-turbo V-8. We also like the type of drama provided by the regal and more immersive drop-top version, even if it comes with a nearly $10k surcharge. The 8's cabin is lavishly appointed with leather covering most every surface and attractive accents, both of which can be mixed to match everyone's preferred aesthetic. We're particularly fond of the Cognac Merino leather and Aluminum Dark Trace interior trim. Among the options we'd select are the glass controls for an even ritzier interior, and the neck warmers in the front-seat headrests­ that'll allow us to enjoy longer periods of top-down driving in our four-season state.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

BMW's biggest coupe and convertible start off with a 335-hp turbocharged inline-six-cylinder. These 840i models pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive (called xDrive in BMW's parlance). While we haven't driven an 8 with the six-cylinder, BMW has built a reputation on silky smooth and responsive powertrains, so only speed freaks will likely be disappointed. Instead, we've driven both body styles of the M850i that feature a 523-hp twin-turbo V-8, eight-speed automatic, and standard all-wheel drive. This combination delivers impressive acceleration for the Bimmer's size and provides a rich soundtrack in the sportiest setting. Likewise, the transmission transitions from relaxed to reactive based on the driver's right foot. Most important, the 8-series delivers on its grand-touring promises, with a supremely quiet ride and surprising athleticism. Its steering feedback is direct and linear but filters out road imperfections and front-tire feedback. Although its adaptive dampers allow extra flexibility depending on the selected drive mode, they make the 8 remarkably stable during cornering in their stiffest setting. The car's powerful brake system and firm pedal feel further enhance the feeling of absolute confidence.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The more powerful M850i, which includes a twin-turbo V-8 and standard all-wheel drive, means a significant reduction in EPA fuel-economy ratings versus the turbo six-cylinder that powers 840i models. The M850i is rated up to 17 mpg city and 25 highway, whereas the less powerful 840i has estimates of up to 23 mpg city and 30 highway. We tested the M850i coupe and convertible on our 75-mph fuel-economy route where they achieved 29 and 26 mpg, respectively. While both body styles exceeded their EPA ratings, the coupe did so by 4 mpg whereas the soft top only managed 1 mpg more. For more information about the 8-series' fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The 2022 8-series interior offers all the infotainment gadgetry and luxury features expected in a high-priced grand tourer. Every model has 14-way power-adjustable heated front seats, soft-close automatic doors, and customizable ambient lighting; more extravagant upgrades include glass control and additional high-end materials. It can even be outfitted with unique BMW Individual options, such as a fancy white-and-brown color scheme. Although it does offer a pair of vestigial rear seats, they're not pleasant places for adults to spend time. The 8's low roofline also impedes headroom in the front seat and outward visibility isn't great, but that's the price of fashion. Its interior cubby storage consists of a coverable tray at the front of the center console, a useful central bin, and adequate door pockets. We also managed to fit five carry-on bags in the coupe's trunk and another six with the back seats stowed, but the convertible held one bag less in each scenario.

Infotainment and Connectivity

A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a 10.3-inch touchscreen are standard on every 8-series. Unfortunately, the instrument panel is overcrowded and not particularly intuitive to operate with the steering-wheel controls. The infotainment system has a variety of ways to interact with it, including a useful rotary knob on the center console. It also features standard Apple CarPlay capability, wireless charging, and a Wi-Fi hotspot—Android Auto is absent. Those who want a more elaborate sound system can opt for the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround system.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2022 8-series offers myriad driver-assistance technology, including a semi-autonomous driving mode. For more information about the 8-series' crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  • Standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
  • Available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology
  • Available lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

BMW covers every 2022 8-series with a competitive limited warranty, however, it flip-flops advantages with its Lexus rival. While the LC has an extra two years or 20,000 miles of powertrain protection, the 8 lineup includes an additional two years or 26,000 miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance.

  • Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Complimentary maintenance is covered for three years or 36,000 miles
