A new BMW 8 Series grand touring car is in the pipeline, but some of us are still celebrating the wedge-shaped original that looks like the 1990s on wheels. Take a closer look at this glorious 1993 BMW 850ci we stretched out on Angeles Crest.
Here’s a good idea. Do you own a BMW 8 series? Or are you interested in buying the new one? Take it in the dirt!
Seriously, that’s not me saying that. That’s BMW saying it in the very first line of their press release for the BMW M8 Gran Coupe, which is a four-door sedan based off of the new M8:
If you zoom in on the teaser picture BMW just released, you’ll see that there are lines for two doors. As in, two doors per side. Which means this is most certainly a sedan. Probably the 8 Series sedan. The chances that BMW will call it a “Gran Coupe” seem dangerously high. Can we knock it off with that already?
BMW’s debuting a new car in Geneva next week, and—based on the automaker’s new teaser image—it will apparently have four doors, and possibly end up being the 8 Series Gran Coupe.
The 1993 BMW 850ci you see here would have cost about $85,000 when it was new, almost $150,000 in today’s money. If you do want one today, it took me nine seconds to find a decent-looking example on Craigslist for under nine grand. There’s depreciation, and then there’s whatever that is.
If you, like me, are a massive fan of George Carlin, one of the greatest comedians to ever have lived, then this is an opportunity of a lifetime: Carlin’s 1996 BMW 850Ci has come up for sale.
I am looking at the 1996 BMW 8 Series brochure in front of me and I see (among many scenes of restrained and technocratic luxury) a grand total of 11 exterior colors, a collection of various subdued grays, greens, blues and reds. But there were other colors. There was ... yellow.
We already know the 2019 BMW 8 Series is going to sound good, but we only had a vague idea if it looked good. Pictures have now leaked on BMW site Bimmerpost.com, however, and we can see it in much of its glory.
“Sounded way bigger than it looked,” the person who spotted this car on the streets of Munich told us. The giant coupe was heavily camouflaged, but based on the size and silhouette I’m almost positive we’re looking at a prototype of the next BMW 8 Series.
We’ve been waiting patiently for the fantastic 8-series halo car to return to BMW’s lineup. Too patiently. We’ve devolved into madness, drooling over retrowave 8 series videos just to hold us over. But it’s here! It’s finally here! Here is the new M8 GTE race car BMW is taking to the 24 Hours of Le Mans—the marque’s…
Are you sad about BMW’s new robotic-shark looking futurecars? Do you want to go back to a time when technological nonsense was all hot-pink neon instead of sharp and angry? Sit down, turn up, ...and hang on.
BMW is likely already preparing to introduce a four-door version of the new 8 Series shortly after the coupe and convertible models go on sale, which would be great if they didn’t already sell five other stylish luxury sedans or five stylish luxury SUVs.
Despite only just recently getting to see the revival of the BMW 8 Series in concept form, it won’t be too long until we see the real deal, which should be a sweet deal considering what’s been spotted rolling around the Nürburgring lately.
Learning about the return of the BMW 8 Series was a good day. Seeing a few leaked photos of the concept made it an even better day. Finally clapping eyes upon the official concept today? I don’t even know what to do with myself.
The 8 Series is actually coming back in 2018, and BMW had planned to give internet fanboys who have been dreaming of this for decades a concept design this weekend. Well the weekend is here early, as photos of the concept have allegedly leaked.
The BMW 8 Series is back. Or at least, it will be soon. This is a profoundly odd development for anyone familiar with one of BMW’s most ambitious and fascinating failed experiments, a car that was an expensive high-tech powerhouse yet never reached critical mass. The thing is, the 8 Series is magic. This video shows…
During a BMW meeting today in Munich, the chairman of the BMW board Harald Krüger confirmed that the BMW 8 Series Coupe is slated for arrival in 2018. Today is a very good day.
Is the BMW 8 Series making a comeback? Yes. Maybe? We don’t know. If it does, you can expect it to be expensive. After all, isn’t it the same as a Rolls-Royce Wraith?
Rumors of the BMW 8 Series’ Big Comeback ebb and flow, and here’s another one: a two-door version of the big, executive 7-Series could be on the way.
