The 2019 BMW 8 Series is a tour de force of performance, technology and luxury. Positioned as both a GT and sports car, the 8 Series is meant to be both more performance oriented and offer higher levels of luxury than the outgoing 6 Serie Coupe.
What does that mean in terms of performance? The M850i (the halo of the range until the M8 is released) produces 530 hp and offers M like performance with all the comfort of a standard series BMW. In other words BMW has created what it believes is the ultimate large BMW coupe.
