Forbes - - THE EYE -

Af­ter a 20-year ab­sence, BMW brings back the 8 Se­ries coupe for 2019. It’s ag­gres­sively styled with what BMW calls “dou­ble bub­ble” con­tour­ing. In­side, sport seats are trimmed in pre­mium Merino leather with con­trast stitch­ing. The M850i’s twin-turbo V8 en­gine is good for a speedy sprint to 60 mph in 3.6 sec­onds. The “xDrive” all-wheel drive comes stan­dard, with per­for­mance­minded op­tions, in­clud­ing Ac­tive Roll Sta­bi­liza­tion to help keep the car un­can­nily flat through the curves. And a self-park­ing sys­tem is among its many extras.

Vi­tal SpecS: 4.4-liter 523 hp twin­tur­bocharged V8 en­gine, 8-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. price: $111,900
