The BMW 8 Series is receiving an expanded lineup for 2020 and we are pleased to announce that the price of entry is down.
The nameplate was revived last year with coupe and cabriolet styles, but only the single-seat, an M850i with a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, delivering 523 horsepower and a couple of 553 pounds. The price of the M850i is $ 112,895.
For 2020, there is a third body style, the Gran Coupé sedan, as well as new entry-level and higher-end nuances. At the top is the M8 V-8 engine, which we saw in June, and at the bottom, the new 840i, which, according to BMW, will start Wednesday at $ 85,895, including destination.
This price is for the 840i Gran Coupe sedan. If you want the 840i coupe, you will have to pay $ 88,895, and for the 840i convertible, the price is $ 98,395. Cars should arrive at dealerships in September.

The 840i is equipped with a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine developing 335 hp and 368 lb-ft. It is associated with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear propulsion is standard. Buyers can opt for AWD. The engine still sees the big series 8 hit at 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds. The figure is for the 840i all-wheel-drive coupe. The maximum speed on all models is 130 mph with all-season tires and 155 mph with high performance tires.
Although it is the starting point for the 8 Series, the 840i is well equipped with laser-based LED headlights, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, sports seats with leather trim, 18 inches, a point of WiFi access, and a wireless charger for mobile devices. There is also the M Sport brake differential that controls the torque between the rear wheels.
Standard driver assistance features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, although convenient adaptive cruise control is bundled with a set of Driver Assistance Professional available. This set includes a number of additional useful features, including a blind spot and lane departure warning, a parking aid and a panoramic view camera.
BMW has made its 8 Series more accessible, and even in the case of an entry-level, you are planning a great fast and luxurious tour.
