PostHeaderIcon Look Back at the Classic , 1990 – 1999 BMW 850i V-12

BMW has just now started rolling out its all-new large coupe model, the 8-Series, a car that revives the model designation of an older two-door that made many enthusiasts gasp in awe back in the early 1990s. The first 8-Series, known as the E31, built between 1990 and 1999, was a real looker, it had strong engines offerings, and an upmarket interior different to that of other BMWs of the time. Yet, somehow, it never gained full cult following status.

PostHeaderIcon Rumors of a 2020 BMW X8 Swirl Yet Again, Could Be An Ultra-Luxurious SUV

BMW just introduced the new 8 Series earlier this year, and in doing so, resurrected the 8 Series nameplate after roughly two decades on the shelf. Fans already adore the new luxury-laden grand tourer, but now it’s looking like BMW might apply some of its 8’er gloss to its SUV line as well.

PostHeaderIcon The Next Generation of BMWs Will Have Their Own Distinct Design

Following in the footsteps of Audi and Mercedes, BMW has adopted the ‘Russian Doll’ design; wherein every product basically looks the same. It feels like the cars have taken the ‘twinning’ concept way too seriously. For instance, it is hard to differentiate between the Audi A4, A6, and A8 if not for their lengths. And, this design approach is getting more and more common for brands. Maybe they use it as a ‘brand recall’ strategy, but it is getting out of hand. So, finally, BMW has decided to put an end to it…..finally

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible vs 2019 Aston Martin DB11 Volante

Unique wheels with a split-spoke layout

The fact that BMW revived the 8 Series nameplate after almost two decades is definitely one of the headlines of 2018. But equally important is the fact that the Germans announced two brand-new versions of this car: there’s an M8 just around the corner, and BMW just introduced the 8 Series Convertible.

The first drop-top version of the 8 Series in history, the Convertible, is here to tackle the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet. However, the topless German is also an option against more expensive grand tourer, like the Aston Martin DB11 Volante. Let’s find out how it compares to the notably more expensive British convertible in the comparison below.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Reveals New Details On M8, Sets Market Release for 2019

For the first time ever, the 8 Series will spawn an M8 version. We know it’s coming, we’ve seen it in concept form, and also as a race car. We still don’t know too many details about the drivetrain, but BMW just released a bit of information and more photos of a camouflaged car.

PostHeaderIcon Shmee’s Walkaround of the 2019 BMW M850i Convertible Makes Us All Tingly Inside

Six months after the 8 Series Coupe dropped at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, BMW has revealed the hotly anticipated 8 Series Convertible, and long story short, it’s quite the looker! YouTube personality Shmee150 got a chance to get up close and personal with the latest topless Bavarian hotrod and documented the experience in this 10-minute, 46-second walkaround video.

PostHeaderIcon Leaked Photos Forced BMW to Showcase the 2019 8 Series Convertible – Here are the Details

Following news that the BMW 8 Series Convertible would debut at the Los Angeles Auto show, and a very convenient leak of press images just the other day, BMW has decided to showcase the new 8 Series convertible in all its glory. In a nutshell, BMW did it right. It comes with a long list of standard equipment including adaptive LED headlights and a wind deflector that can even be stowed away when not needed. More importantly, that soft-top is electric and can be opened or closed in just 15 seconds and at speeds of up to 31 mph.

PostHeaderIcon 10 fun coupes with enough space for your golf clubs

Whether it’s a quick jaunt to the driving range, or an entire Sunday spent on the links with your friends, it’s important to have the right ride to get you and your gear to the golf course without a fuss. As such, the big luxury automakers out there offer a range of two-door coupes with enough space in the rear to transport your clubs, bag, and whatever else you need for a round or two, all without sacrificing comfort in the cabin. But which of these is the best?

To find out, we took a look at all the big names on the market from the perspective of a golfer. First and foremost, the coupe in question has to have enough trunk space to carry at least one golf bag, assuming an average golf bag size of 36 inches by 14 inches by 10 inches, or 3 cubic feet, give or take. What’s more, we’re also considering style and appearance, as well as luxury and equipment features inside the cabin.

So then – arranged in no particular order, here’s our picks for the top 10 luxury coupes to take golfing.

PostHeaderIcon Here’s the 2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible Before You’re Supposed to See It

Unveiled earlier this year, the new BMW 8 Series was scheduled to lose its roof and become a Convertible at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. If you were excited to see it in topless form, the wait is pretty much over, as the drop-top grand tourer just broke cover via a set of leaked photos.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Mulling Over a 9 Series Maybach Fighter

Just when it seemed like BMW had finally stretched itself into the luxury segment with the 8 Series, a new report suggests that the German automaker wants to go deeper into the luxury realm with — wait for it — a 9 Series model. Granted, nothing is set in stone at the moment, but Adrian van Hooydonk, BMW’s design director, hinted to Autocar that the 8 Series isn’t the end of the German automaker’s voyage into the world of luxury models.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

Having revived the 8 Series after two decades, BMW is also planning to build a Gran Coupe version of the two-door. A concept car was shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, where it was confirmed that the 8 Series Gran Coupe “will take over as the new flagship model” for the brand. Come July 2018, and the production model was spotted on the road.

Much like the coupe, the production car will share many features with the concept. However, this test vehicle has a milder appearance, as it appears to be a standard model and not the M version we saw in Geneva. Our paparazzi actually spotted two cars. There’s a regular 8 Series on a trailer and a sportier version with the M Sport package stretching its wheels on the road. The final product could break cover by the end of 2018 and join a niche that already includes the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Audi A7.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the BMW M8 Tear Ass Around the Nurburgring

Like a shot of the good juice on a clear morning, the BMW M8 was spotted at the Nurburgring doing some good ‘ol fashion testing. The long-bodied beauty was dressed in heavy camouflage, but the coupe’s unmistakable look can still be gleaned underneath all that wrapping.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 8 Series Convertible

Unveiled for the 2019 model year, the modern BMW 8 Series revives the iconic nameplate that the German firm produced from 1990 to 1999. Unlike its predecessor, the new 8 Series also spawned a convertible version to tackle the drop-top variant of the luxurious Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe.

After nearly two decades on the shelf, the BMW 8 Series is back, and it’s once again looking to head the BMW lineup with sporty grand touring luxury as a replacement for the outgoing 6 Series. Revived in both racing and full production form at the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Bavarians kicked things off with a hardtop coupe iteration, but this new flagship also spawned a convertible ahead of the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Does it have what it takes to give the S-Class Cabriolet a run for its money?

The highly anticipated debut of the 2019 BMW 8 Series finally happened this week, and as has been the case recently, the luxury sedan’s online configurator quickly followed. Online configurators have been fun exercises for us. We get to create our own version of the new model and spec it right down to the most specific of details. Far too often, our creations end up differing from another, but that’s precisely the purpose of these configurators. You create what you want regardless of the opinions of other people. In the end, you live by your creation, and you show it off to the rest of the world. And so it is, our spec of the 2019 BMW 8 Series.

PostHeaderIcon Evolution of an Icon – 1999 BMW 8 Series vs 2019 BMW 8 Series

The arrival of the 2019 BMW 8 Series was a long time in the making. It’s been almost 20 years since an 8 Series hit the streets, and the arrival of the new model has brought our memories of the original version back on the surface. In times like this, we can’t help but wonder how the 8 Series measures up to the original. Does it look better? Does it have better materials? Which came with better technologies? We pieced through all that to find a clearer picture of how the new 8 Series compares to its iconic OG.

PostHeaderIcon The BMW 8 Series is Out, but What do we Know About the BMW M8?

Harvey Samuel Firestone is not a guy you would usually tie with BMW, let alone the newest BMW M850i. He founded the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company back in 1900 and paved the way for a well-known marketing idea called – “Win On Sunday, Sell On Monday!”

Muscle car producers (and not only them) used this strategy to their advantage back in the day of really cheap gas. Good old times. It seems that BMW is attempting to implement the same strategy this year with their 8 Series.

BMW unveiled the new 8 Series at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and placed it directly next to their fantastic M8 GTE racer. The model in question was the top spec M850i xDrive Coupe M Performance in orange. BMW Motorsport CEO Franciscus Van Meel and BMW designer Adrian Van Hooydonk talked endlessly to the press there explaining all the bits and pieces.

And it happened! Van Meel said:

“This car (pointing at the M8 GTE) is going to race today, and that car (pointing at the M850i) you can buy later on this year.”

So, yes, BMW M boss is actually telling you to buy the M850i which is such a sports performance machine it felt only natural to reveal it next to its sister, the race-bred M8 GTE. Some questions lingered after seeing the footage. What, for the love of all that is sacred, will the M8 bring? What will it turn into?

Maybe a monster. Maybe an undisputed BMW that the fantastic original 850CSi from the Nineties simply couldn’t have been.

This is a story about the forthcoming BMW M8.

PostHeaderIcon Xtomi Renders the 8 Series as a Cabrio, Pickup, Shooting Brake, and NFS Most Wanted Street Racer

The arrival — or is it return? — of the BMW 8 Series has done a lot of things in the industry, including giving designers an opportunity to render the German automaker’s new flagship model sporting different body types. It’s no surprise that as soon as the 8 Series was unveiled, noted artist and rendering maestro X-Tomi has come out with different “versions” of the 8er, some of which are more audacious than others.

Does the 8 Series work as a shooting brake? How about a convertible version? Maybe even as a pickup? X-Tomi covered all these bases with his renders for the 8 Series, and almost all of them are awesome.

The BMW 8 series is a fascinating exercise in design, technology, and style.
