BMW 8-Series Available With Gas And Diesel Engines From €100,000 In Germany

BMW has released pricing of the all-new 8-Series Coupe, in its home market of Germany.

It is available in two trim levels, the 840d diesel and M850i petrol, both of them with xDrive all-wheel drive, starting at €100,000 ($116,023) and €125,700 ($145,841), respectively.

The first one makes use of a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine. It generates 320PS (315hp / 235kW) and 680Nm (580lb-ft) of torque, and allows the model to sprint from rest to 100km/h (0-62mph) in 4.9 seconds.

The BMW M850i xDrive, on the other hand, is more impressive, with its new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine. The mill delivers a total output of 530PS (523hp / 390kW) and 750Nm (553lb-ft) of torque to both axles, and the brand claims an impressive 3.7sec needed for the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) acceleration. Both models use a dual-clutch eight-speed automatic gearbox, which has been enhanced.

Selecting some extra gear from the options list will make the new flagship Bimmer more expensive than the base Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. The latter starts from €128,121 ($148,650) in Germany, in the S560 guise, powered by a V8 petrol engine that makes 469PS (462hp / 345kW).

The M Sport Package is reserved for the M850i flavor and will set buyers back for €5,550 ($6,439), whereas the M Technic Sport Package costs €4,100 ($4,757). Choosing the Carbon Package means paying another €4,100 ($4,757), and that’s without the carbon fiber roof, which adds €3,000 ($3,481) to the sticker price.

BMW is going to launch the new 8-Series in global markets in the coming weeks/months, and then we’ll have more to report on.

    So, what they did is to rename the successor of the 6-series and ask a ton of money more for it? That’s a great marketing, because it will sell good for sure – a lot of idiots with money and poor judgement out there.
