BMW 8 Series Specifications

Exterior

Will you opt for the two-door 8 Series Coupé, one of the very best in its class? Perhaps you’d like that self same car, only with a retractable roof? If that’s the case, the 8 Series Convertible is a terrific choice. Alternatively, the 8 Series Gran Coupé maintains the aesthetic qualities of its two-door siblings, and adds two more to the mix, while providing increased cabin capacity.

20-inch alloys Installed as standard are 20-inch ‘M’ alloys, whose lightness enhances both efficiency and performance. These wheels feature a striking Y-spoke design too, and are fitted with run-flat tyres, which do just what they say – allow the car to keep driving, even if a puncture occurs.
M styling Each 8 Series iteration comes with an ‘M’ body style, which includes front and rear wings (or fenders) and side sills, each helping to deliver optimised aerodynamics.
Power-operated boot A power-operated tailgate proves to be a positive boon whenever the time comes to stow shopping bags, suitcases, golf clubs and the like. With your 8 Series key about your person, all you need to do is touch an area just beneath the lid of the boot to activate it.

Interior

Although the 8 Series Coupé/Convertible only has two doors, there’s actually space inside for four. Admittedly, two adults in the back might find space a little tight but a pair of younger travellers should be more than happy with the set-up, even on longer trips. By comparison, the 8 Series Gran Coupé offers greater flexibility: a four-door body and plenty of room for two adults in the rear compartment.

Heated seats All models are fitted with heated front sport seats that offer plenty of electric adjustment options, thus ensuring a comfortable ride – and the driver has the added benefit of memory presets.
Climate control The Gran Coupé features automatic four-zone climate control and electric windows, making it easy to establish an ideal temperature for all concerned.
Reflective windscreen Thanks to the 8 Series’ ‘climate comfort’ windscreen, intense sunshine is deflected. This has the twin effect of keeping glare to an absolute minimum and preventing the cabin from heating up unduly.

Performance

Entry-level models are fitted with a 3.0-litre 340bhp petrol engine. This six-cylinder unit produces 500Nm of torque, enabling Coupé variants to go from 0-60mph in approximately five seconds and reach a top speed of 155mph. The fastest, most powerful option is a 4.4-litre 530bhp unleaded unit. This eight-cylinder engine delivers a peak torque of 750Nm and 0-60mph in roughly 3.5 seconds (Coupé iterations). Gran Coupé variants lag just a little behind in the performance stakes, while Convertible iterations rank third in terms of acceleration. Overall, though, the differences are fairly negligible.

The vehicle’s satellite navigation system is accessed via a 10.3-inch touchscreen, and offers 3D mapping, real-time traffic information, smartphone integration and much more. Each 8 Series model features cutting-edge safety technology, including sensors and cameras that keep tabs on hard-to-spot obstacles and potential collisions.
