2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible
new 2019 BMW 8 Seriesカブリオレ
To no one's surprise, BMW's new 8-series coupe is gaining a convertible variant. Making its debut ahead of an official reveal at next month’s Los Angeles auto show, the new droptop 8-series replaces the outgoing 6-series convertible, which disappeared for the 2019 model year. The 8 nomenclature signifies a more prestigious place at the top of the Bimmer lineup, and the 8-series seems to have the looks, performance, and price to back that up.
It's easy to tell that the 8-series convertible shares its shape and most of its bodywork with the coupe—and that’s a good thing. Sleek and low-slung, this four-seat convertible with a softtop is just as attractive as its hardtop sibling. Even when the top is raised, a task that takes 15 seconds and can be completed at speeds up to 30 mph, the car’s profile remains nicely proportioned. It’s nearly the same inside, too although cargo capacity shrinks slightly to 12 cubic feet (split-folding rear seats help expand that somewhat).
In the United States, the convertible will be offered in the same M850i xDrive configuration as the hardtop. That denotes it as using a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 with 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque mated with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic.
