The all-new BMW 8 Series Convertible


The all-new BMW 8 Series Convertible

BMW is forging ahead with its model offensive in the luxury segment with the presentation of an open-top sports car which explores the highest reaches of dynamic flair, emotionality and exclusivity. The new BMW 8 Series Convertible blends ultra-sporty driving properties with distinctive design elegance and offers an extremely exclusive passport to hallmark BMW driving pleasure and a full-blooded open-top driving experience.

•Premiere for the second model in the new BMW 8 Series luxury-class line-up: New BMW 8 Series Convertible combines dynamic flair and serene long-distance ability with a sumptuous open-top driving experience.

•Open-air driving pleasure for four people. Classical soft-top roof with fully electric, extremely quiet operation, minimised weight and outstanding acoustic comfort. Roof opens and closes in 15 seconds at the touch of a button and when travelling at up to 50 km/h (31 mph). Soft-top in Black as standard or Anthracite Silver effect as an option.

•Standalone interpretation of emotionally rich exterior styling based on the new, clear and precise BMW design language. Familiar BMW proportions and elegantly flowing lines stand out particularly clearly with the roof down. Compact, taut soft-top generates distinctive “deck” silhouette.

•Wide, sporty rear-end design underlines the low-slung stance of the new BMW 8 Series Convertible.

•Exterior and interior design work together harmoniously. Gently rising shoulderline; surrounds for the side windows and soft-top lid merge. Front and rear seats embraced in a flowing movement. Sophisticated design for soft-top compartment with subtle domes and surfacing that takes its cues from the instrument panel and door shoulders.

•Market launch in March 2019 with two model variants: BMW M850i xDrive Convertible (fuel consumption combined: 10.0 – 9.9 l/100 km [28.3 – 28.5 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 229 – 225 g/km)* with 390 kW/530 hp V8 engine and BMW 840d xDrive Convertible (fuel consumption combined: 6.3 – 5.9 l/100 km [44.8 – 47.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 165 – 155 g/km)* with six-cylinder in-line diesel engine and 235 kW/320 hp. Both engine variants meet Euro 6d-TEMP exhaust standard. Power transfer by eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive.

•Unadulterated sports car character thanks to unwavering focus on maximising performance capability, powertrain technology and chassis in the development of the body structure. Developed alongside BMW 8 Series Coupe, BMW M8 and BMW M8 GTE endurance racer. Low centre of gravity, even weight distribution, lightweight construction using aluminium, magnesium and carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), aerodynamically optimised, almost lift-free body.

•Extremely stiff body and chassis structure with Convertible-specific underbody bracing. Special occupant protection measures, including strengthened windscreen frame and rollover bars behind the rear seats that extend by pyrotechnic charge.

•Adaptive M suspension, Integral Active Steering and mixed-size tyres as standard. M Sport differential (with electronically controlled differential lock) fitted as standard at the rear axle of the BMW M850i xDrive Convertible and available as an option for the BMW 840d xDrive Convertible. Active roll stabilisation optional for the BMW M850i xDrive Convertible.

• Driving Experience Control switch with ADAPTIVE mode. Clearly noticeable difference in car set-up between COMFORT and ECO Pro modes at one end of the spectrum and SPORT / SPORT+ modes at the other. Carefully judged adjustment of the powertrain and chassis systems enables clear focus on dynamic sharpness or sumptuous comfort.

•Adaptive LED headlights and LED rear lights as standard. BMW Laserlight with Selective Beam and high beam range increased to 600 metres available as an option.

•M Sport package for the BMW 840d xDrive Convertible with specific design and equipment features: front apron with extra-large air intakes, distinctive side skirt and rear apron design, 19-inch M light-alloy wheels, M Sport braking system, multifunction seats, M leather steering wheel and illuminated door sills with M logo.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
