Bmw unveils 8 series convertible photos, details
Pictures of the brand new bmw 8 series convertible have been leaked, giving us a complete look at the allnew drop top. Now bmw is releasing its own pictures and has given us some information to go along with them.
The convertible adds 100 kilograms to the coupe model and two-tenths of a second to the 0-100 km/h time. The new model is also able to hit 250 km/h before electronic limiters kick in.
The new roof “pulls taut over the interior when closed” which bmw says offers superb sound insulation. opening or closing happens with the push of a button and can be done in 15 seconds while the car is in motion up to 50 km/h. with the roof down, a wind deflector and optional neck warmer keep you comfortable.
Now that the 8 series is a convertible, you’ll need a little more protection, and bmw provides it in the form of aluminum safety bars behind your head in case of a rollover.
The sole engine option in North america is bmw’s twin-turbo 4.4litre v8, which makes a happy 526 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. it will also get to highway speeds in just 3.9 seconds. in europe, buyers can choose the 840d model, which comes with a 3.0-l diesel engine.
