While there are two models at launch – the 840d being the other one – the BMW M850i is the one you want to hear about with its newly revised 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. That engine makes 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic, which sends power to a newly revised xDrive all-wheel drive system and a rear-wheel steer system.
According to BMW, the M850i can nail 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, which is right on par with other cars in its segment. For instance, the Aston Martin DB11 V8 takes 3.7 seconds with a bit less power, the Mercedes-AMG GT S takes 3.5 seconds and the W12-powered Bentley Continental GT taking 3.3 seconds.
Inside, the BMW 8 Series features a newly designed instrument panel and cluster featuring the iDrive infotainment controller, “Driving Experience Control” switch for drive modes and a head-up display. The 850 has a 12.3-inch screen in the center with a 10.25-inch control display behind the steering wheel.
The worldwide market launch of the sleek new coupe is scheduled for November 2018 and the US market will get the M850i xDrive on December 8. The 2019 M850i xDrive Coupe will start at $111,900 plus $995 Destination and Handling.
