Bmw un­veils 8 se­ries con­vert­ible pho­tos, de­tails

Tillsonburg News - - DRIVING - Alex Reid

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.
