The BMW 8-Series returns after two decades in the form of the new M850i xDrive which is priced from $112,985, including a $995 destination and handling fee.
BMW has fitted the M850i with an impressively long list of features as standard, including Full LED headlights with BMW LaserLight technology, BMW Individual Merino Leather upholstery, sixteen-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, Sport Automatic Transmission, Adaptive M Suspension with Active-Roll Stabilization, M Sport Brakes, Parking Assistant and BMW Live Cockpit Professional with 12.3 inch and 10.25 inch digital displays.
Options for the all-new 2019 BMW M850i include the Driving Assistant Professional, a 1,400-watt Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound system, glass controls for the gear selector, iDrive controller, start/stop button and audio volume knob and a carbon fiber roof. BMW will also offer a carbon fiber exterior trim package, which includes carbon inlays for the front and rear bumpers, large diffuser blades in the rear, and carbon mirror caps and rear spoiler.
Power comes from the company’s new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 that makes 523hp (530PS) and 553lb-ft (750Nm) of peak torque from 1,800rpm. The engine sends its power to all four wheels via an improved eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission. The added grip of the all-wheel drive also makes the new M850i a really fast car, with BMW claiming a 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds (0-100km/h in 3.7s).
As mentioned above, the new 2019 BMW 8-Series will arrive in the US market this December.
