BMW 8 Series Convertible Specifications

Exterior

Close X

Two-door sports cars don’t come much better than the 8 Series Convertible, and it looks mightily impressive with its canopy in position, making it barely indistinguishable from its Coupé sibling. And this fully-automatic roof allows you to respond quickly to changing weather conditions, because it can be furled/unfurled in just 15 seconds when driving at speeds of up to 31mph.

Alloy options The 8 Series Convertible rides on 18-inch alloys as standard, each sporting a classy V-spoke design, featuring the iconic BMW insignia at the very centre. These wheels don’t just look good, they’re sufficiently lightweight, which helps provide enhanced efficiency and performance.
Improved aerodynamics This automobile boasts a captivating ‘M’ body style, which isn’t simply an aesthetic consideration since it also helps to deliver improved aerodynamics and thus, enhanced performance levels.
Power boot The vehicle’s power-operated boot lid is an extremely useful feature, especially if you find yourself holding a lot of shopping – or luggage packed for an impromptu weekend getaway.

Interior

Close X

The BMW 8 Series Convertible might only feature two doors (which is, of course, a very good look for a vehicle of its type) but there’s still room for four inside. You may find that space in the rear compartment is tight for full-size adults, but it’s useful to have the extra capacity when you need it. There’s every likelihood that younger travellers will be perfectly happy with the amount of room in the back.

Heated sports seats Front-row travellers are provided with low-slung positions, which are heated and offer myriad adjustment options, making it quick and easy to get comfortable.
Climate comfort The car’s windscreen is embedded with a reflective material that delivers ‘climate comfort’. This clever feature reduces glare from the sun and helps to maintain an even cabin temperature.
Roll-over protection Thanks to the roll-over protection system, seat-belted occupants are afforded extra protection in the unlikely event that the vehicle flips over. The Convertible is the only 8 Series model that has this feature.

Performance

Included as standard is a 3.0-litre 335bhp petrol engine, which allows the car to go from 0-60mph in approximately 5.1 seconds. Delivering the ultimate in 8 Series performance is a 4.4-litre 523bhp unleaded unit. This eight-cylinder turbo-boosted engine delivers 0-60mph in roughly 3.7 seconds, which is quite some turn of pace. Although the vehicle isn’t designed with fuel-consumption as a priority (it’s a sports car, after all) there is a decent green option available. This is a 3.0-litre 316bhp diesel unit, which manages up to 40.4mpg and enables 0-60mph in around five seconds.

Technology

Wherever you travel, enjoy the immersive audio experience provided by a 16-speaker Harman Kardon system. Whether you choose to listen to Mozart’s Requiem on BBC Radio 3 or ‘Bomber’ by Motörhead on Planet Rock via the car’s DAB radio, you’ll be in for a treat. Of course, you can bring your own sounds to bear, by taking advantage of AUX and USB inputs, or by streaming audio content via enhanced Bluetooth. The latter also makes it possible to wirelessly charge your compatible devices – and enjoy hands-free mobile phone communication. Also included as standard is a 10.3-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system that provides access to a plethora of useful features, such as full-colour 3D maps and up-to-the-minute traffic information.
