What will be the BMW 8-Series cabriolet? Photos of the new-generation BMW 8-Series convertible have been published by Auto Express. A car without camouflage was seen in Scotland.
The images show a cabriolet in the M850i xDrive modification, equipped with a petrol twin-turbo 8-cylinder 4.4-liter motor with 530 hp and the top torque of 750 Nm. The unit is paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
With such a powertrain the coupe, which debuted in June, can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 miles) in 3.7 seconds.
The equipment of the M850i version also includes a self-locking rear differential, powerful brakes with 395 mm wheels and active anti-roll bars, which can be ordered as options.
Apart from the petrol engine, a diesel one will be available for the model. The 3.0-liter 6-cylinder motor outputs 320 hp and 680 Nm of torque. The coupe with this engine accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds.
Dynamic characteristics have not been announced yet. The sales will start in November 2018.
