BMW 8 Series Convertible without camouflageJune 8, 2018
Automobile journalists managed to capture the representative of the new flagship family BMW 8 Series. There was no camouflage on the convertible, but he did not have a rear bumper, rear lights and a third brake light, aтв a company badge.
It has long been known that in a few days, the revived BMW 8 Series coupe will be introduced – a previously similar model with a similar name, the Bavarian brand produced between 1989 and 1999. The official presentation will take place within the framework of a special event dedicated to the opening of the next leg of the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans.
So far, there is no information about when the novelty in the convertible body will be presented.
Fortunately, our foreign agile journalists were able to capture the prototype of this car – a series of so-called spy photos was published today. Note that although the car was seen and did not wear any camouflage, it did not have some details, such as a rear bumper, tail lights and a third brake light. Nevertheless, even now you can see that the novelty will be a direct replacement for the 6 Series convertible.
In addition, the convertible did not receive the company’s badge of the Bavarian automaker BMW. Despite this, thanks to the earlier spy photos of the German novelty, we got a good idea of what to expect from the serial version of the model.
We already know a lot about what will boast the version of the M850i. The car will receive a new generation of 4.4-liter V8 from BMW, the 4-cylinder engine now develops a maximum power of 523 horsepower, and the “ceiling” of torque will be 750 Nm. The novelty will also receive a proprietary xDrive all-wheel drive system and Steptronic’s 8-speed sports transmission, which has also been upgraded for faster shifting.
Finally, we want to note that in addition to the coupe and convertible, the new 8 Series will include a four-door coupe Gran Coupe, and a full charged modification from the BMW M, which will be presented for each body.
Not so long ago, the Bavarian automotive company completely declassified the new generation of its crossover BMW X5.
