BMW is forging ahead with its model offensive in the luxury segment with the presentation of an open-top sports car. The worldwide market launch of the new 8-Series Coupe took place in November 2018. To be built at the BMW Dingolfing plant alongside the 7-Series sedans, it will be offered in standard specification and M Sport package. The latter comes with exclusive design features and options for additional enhancement of the dynamic driving experience.
The launch of the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe also marks the premiere of the latest generation of the 4.4-litre eight-cylinder unit which has been radically revised and numerous details optimised. Two twin-scroll turbochargers with charge air cooling along with precision injection, variable valve camshaft-based timing comes from the M Performance department which has given a substantial boost to maximum output, torque and efficiency according to the manufacturer.

At the same time, maximum torque has been raised by 100 Nm to 750 which is available over a wide rev range from 1,800 to 4,600 rpm for prolonged forward thrust.

Besides performance from M, there will also be an appearance kit available like M leather steering wheel, Individual Merino leather, anthracite headliner, M pedals, M driver’s footrest and special floor mats to inject the cabin with distinctly sporty flair.
