The revival of the BMW 8 Series coupe is a large and stunning creature, slotting in as BMW’s top grand tourer when it debuted in June. But even after that debut, here’s a camouflage-wrapped 8 Series rolling around in the Mojave Desert—one with a soft top, which the original 8 Series from the ’90s never had.
Last year’s introduction of the all-new BMW 5 Series left the outgoing M5 in the dust with the M550i xDrive model, powered by a 4.4-liter V8 with 455 horsepower. Bad news for last-gen M5 owners is that the 2020 M550i is going to get even more power, which means it will be even quicker.
In 1987, BMW announced to the world that it was officially not screwing around anymore when it put a 5.0-liter V12 into production, setting a 300-horsepower standard for luxury and refinement. It was only a few years later that BMW would produce probably the ultimate V12, the 618-horsepower heart of the McLaren F1.…
We’ve finally welcomed the return of the BMW 8 Series, with attractive styling that isn’t quite as exciting as the classic model but still looks good. None of that will matter soon, as these patent renderings of an 8 Series Gran Coupe are going to ruin everything.
We’ve all been dreaming of the day we could pair our love for BMW’s newest grand tourer with the nation that brought us the smooth tunes of the saxophone. It’s finally come, as BMW of Belgium’s configurator for the new 8 Series is live.
Here it is, officially: The 2019 BMW 8 Series Coupe. We’ve been waiting a long time for this thing to show its face and, my God, does it look good.
I know leaked images are always pretty exciting, but, to be fair, this car has already proven to be leakier than the radiators in any liquid-cooled car I seem to own. First we got a big hint at the look of the resurrected 8 Series via the concept, we’ve seen the test mules, and at the beginning of the year, we saw…
A prototype of the soon-to-be-unveiled BMW 8 Series coupe was involved in a serious crash in Bavaria on Saturday, killing the passenger.
I have a thing for road cars turned race cars. They’re like the ultimate form of what you see in dealerships and on the street. They’re like as good as the basic car design can be. And that’s what makes this BMW M8 GTE interesting. Inside every 8 Series road car we can expect to see soon lives this version that sounds…
The impending second coming of the BMW 8 Series grand touring car will be lead by the (presumed 2019) BMW M850i xDrive Coupe, which the company says will feature four-wheel drive, a locking rear differential (what is this, a dang truck?) and 530 horsepower.
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.
