The new BMW 8-Series will arrive in Ireland in November, priced from €125,725 OTR.
The new 8-Series will launch here in two model variants: the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe M Performance model with a new, 530hp V8 engine, and a BMW 840d xDrive Coupe with six-cylinder in-line diesel unit developing 320hp.
Both models have been developed in parallel with the BMW M8 and the BMW M8 GTE endurance racer.
Adaptive M suspension, Integral Active Steering and mixed-size tyres come as standard. Active roll stabilisation is optionally available for the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe.
There’s also a new BMW Operating System 7.0 display and control concept. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional includes a fully digital instrument cluster and 10.25-inch Control Display.
The BMW Digital Key will permit access to the vehicle and engine start by smartphone. Software updates “over the air” will also feature.
