Default 2019 BMW 8 Series Coupe

God DAMN.

Lots of pics in the link - https://jalopnik.com/the-2019-bmw-8-...ner-1826868305



Quote:
The 8 Series Coupe will launch with two models, the M850i xDrive Coupe M Performance with a V8, and the 840d xDrive Coupe with a six-cylinder diesel. Itís a pretty safe bet that we wonít be getting the diesel, though. Both engine options will be mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

That V8 will be the 4.4-liter twin-turbo powerhouse that we know and love, offering 530 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. BMW claims that the zero to 60 sprint happens in just 3.6 seconds and that the top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
Quote:
No price was announced yet, but itís definitely going to be in the low $100,000-range.
Quote:
I also cannot help but notice that the current M5 is still more powerful than the 8. Does that mean that an M8 is in the works? Itís easier than ever to build power with turbocharged engines these days. I wouldnít be surprised if an upcoming M8 had, like, 650 HP or something.

The interior is a little muted but far from ugly. The exterior I like a lot.

Yawn. Looks like any other BMW on the road.

The previous model looked like nothing on the road and stood out like something special. Because it was.

It looked like a Supra . Both cars were ahead of their time in looks.

Black, white or San Marino blue would be fire.


I like the redesigned interior and wonder if the other models will mimic that for future releases.

I'm not a fan of the corners on the back though... kinda reminds me of a Prius.

$112,895. That’s where 2019 BMW M850i starts.

You’re also getting some top-shelf equipment standard, including BMW’s LaserLight LED headlights, a sixteen-speaker Harman Kardon stereo, adaptive suspension and M-sport brakes.

You’ll also get BMW Live Cockpit Professional, which I felt required to call out individually so I could address how un-creatively the company named its Audi Virtual Cockpit Knockoff.
Quote:
If you really hate your money, you can also throw it away on a package that upgrades the gear selector, iDrive controller, start/stop button and audio volume knob to glass. A carbon package is also available, bringing carbon-fiber trimmings to the bumpers, diffuser, mirror caps and spoiler.

Finally, BMW offers a carbon-fiber roof. The press release notes proudly that this is the first non-M car BMW to offer such an option, as if that will factor into anyone’s buying decision in any way.

That actually seems quite pleasant for the amount of car you're getting. Hell, the Mercedes S-class coupe STARTS at 124k, and thats just for the base no frills S 560 4matic with the w/ the 4.0L 463hp engine.

That being said......You can still get a nicely optioned M5 for about the same starting price as the m850i......If i had cash in hand, I think it'd be a hard choice. I have always been partial to coupes tho.. But that M5 is a hell of a car.

Quote:
The 2019 BMW M850i xDrive goes on sale in the U.S. in December. It starts at $111,900, an almost 40 grand bump over the old 6 Series coupe, and pretty squarely into lower-end 911 territory. There aren’t a huge amount of options because it’s suitably loaded as-is, but it can hit $130,000 or so with them.

Expensive, yes, but suitably grander than the old 6 was. And anything this huge and nice that can be anywhere near M5 territory is hugely impressive.

Any BMW with an 8 in the name has a lot to live up to, and the 850i does. A somewhat ordinary interior does little to dull the appeal of this grand tourer. And like the Man of Steel, it’s capable of a lot more than the business-suit demeanor implies.

Does resemble a Mustang to me. Interior looks outstanding though.
