Selecting the Right Body Style

Selecting the Right Body StyleThe first noteworthy characteristic of the 2021 BMW 8 Series is that it’s available in three body styles…

  • Coupe: Built with two doors and unstoppable power/agility.
  • Gran Coupe: The four doors make it a sedan, while the overall design makes it a luxury sports car.
  • Convertible: The compact soft top goes down in 15 seconds for hours of fun on the road.

No matter which version of the 8 Series you choose, you’ll have a car that commands attention from onlookers.

Look at the Coupe, for instance. Its wide rear stance, modern taillights, and low, swooping roofline offer that perfect blend of high performance and effortless elegance.


Opting for the Ideal Amount of Power

Opting for the Ideal Amount of PowerAnother noteworthy element about the 2021 8 Series is its power under the hood. We’ll look to the Gran Coupe for this example.

The car comes standard with a 3.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder. With 335 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque, this motor provides a thrilling ride. If you crave more power under the pedal, though, go for the available 4.4L BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8. Not only does it pump out 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, but it also gets you going from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds!

The vehicle also allows you to customize how your commutes will go. This is thanks to Driving Dynamics Control. Choose between ECO PRO, SPORT, and COMFORT for a ride that’s efficient, athletic, or a nice blend of the two.


Which Configuration Would Work for You?

Which Configuration Would Work for You?Not only does the BMW 8 Series come in three body styles, but each one comes in the same three trim levels:

  • 840i
  • 840i xDrive
  • M850i xDrive

So, how do you know which one would be ideal for your daily excursions? You simply need to look at each trim’s offerings to decide.

Take the convertible, for example. It comes standard with heated Vernasca leather seats. The armrests and steering wheel are heated, too, so you can stay nice and cozy on even the most frigid of mornings.

Also standard in the 8 Series is Apple CarPlay™/Android Auto™ smartphone integration. Plug your mobile device into the vehicle’s USB port for easier access to your music library, podcasts, and more. You can then hear everything clearly through the available 16-speaker Harman Kardon® Surround Sound Audio System—it’ll be like the artist on the radio or person on the other end of your phone call is in the car with you!
