Current Model
The 8 Series comes as a luxury two-door coupe, convertible, or four-door sedan. It faces off against other six-figure boutique cruiser-type cars, blending luxury appointments, high-tech features, prodigious power, and exclusivity.
The 8 is available with a six- or eight-cylinder turbocharged engine, each mated to an eight-speed automatic and featuring all-wheel drive. We found the six-cylinder to be silky-smooth and plenty powerful, but the V8 brings a glorious sound. The convertible has a soft top that can be opened and closed on the move and an optional warm-air vent in the head restraint. As is endemic to this type of car, cabin access, outward visibility, and interior room are compromised.

2019-2020
2019 Redesign Year
The 8 Series returns as a luxury four-door coupe or convertible. The 8 is a resurrected series that was BMW's flagship coupe in the 1990s, designated as the 840i and 850i.
It's meant to compete with other six-figure boutique cruiser-type cars, offering a mix of pampering, high tech, power, and exclusivity. For 2019, the 8 has a turbocharged V8 engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. We found that combo to be super-slick, punchy, and relatively fuel-efficient in the 7 Series we tested. The 8 Series promises a combination of luxury and high tech wrapped in a sporty, stylish silhouette.
