BMW 8 Series was first built between 1989 and 1999. The new 2019 BMW 8 Series is a sport car that is considered as one of the most daring and intriguing BMW ever built. The Bimmer is also among the most recommendable BMWs that were built in the 1990s, besides the iconic one, M3. Demanded again and again by BMW’s fans ever since it was stopped and discontinued, the new BMW is truly coming back to the market. It is unveiled since at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, in May 2017 BMW unfolded 2019 BMW 8 Series concept car, and confirmed that it will have a production model in 2018, alongside a beefed-up M8 version. What a good news for the fans! 2019 8 Series has been issued for several years, but for some strange reasons, BMW decided not to bring it to the market back up to now. Why ‘Strange’? It is because BMW did need to create the luxury coupe above the 6 series. Comparing with the competitor, Mercedes-Benz had already been selling a two-door S-Class, another competitor Audi was going to launch the A9, the BMW 8 Series 2019 is obligated if they still want to compete with those brands. So, what can we find from the new 8 Series? Let’s follow the review.
2019 BMW 8 Series Aggressive Exterior with Little Modifications
The question is how much of the 2019 BMW 8 Series concept will bring in the real production car? BMW told that the car will show up with the concept in 2017, but it is still doubted that the car will be as exotic as the concept. Probably it was based on the fact that the M8, which The German Brand previewed through a camouflaged vehicle, did not partition that features with the concept. In the beginning of 2018 the guessing was about to come true. The production hit the Interwebz through several leaked photos. Finally, it is obvious that the design is far from unique and exotic. The few changes including aggressive headlamps, a uniquely shaped grille, the profile is nice a sleek, with a long engine hood. Other than that, there will be no significant different with 6 Series.
A Futuristic Interior of 2019 BMW 8 Series
Straight to the point, in 2019 BMW 8 Series, BMW will likely make a few interior modification concept for production, but the cabin shows that it is essentially ready to hit the assembly line. It is very futuristic style, and it will likely take only a few changes to make it worth for a production car. It is obvious that we might not get the carbon-fiber center stack, the inspiring motor sport instrument cluster, the unusual steering wheel, or the Spartan, but over all other things are ready as they get.
BMW 8 Series 2019 Good Powerplans
Looking at how the S-Class sedan and coupe have the same drivetrains, and the most important is how BMW commonly shares its engines in their nameplates, it is worth to predict that the 2019 BMW 8 Series is going to get the same powerplans as S-Class sedan. The performance will likely get a little improvement. The top speed is going to be limited to 130 mph as the basic speed, but it might probably increase to 155 mph. The 8 Series will provide both rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive versions.
2019 BMW 8 Series Pricing and Release Date
It is fair to estimate that the 8 Series will probably cost more than $110,000. The 2019 BMW 8 Series, as being unveiled before, will release in the late of 2018.
