BMW of Manhattan takes their BMW M850i xDrive for a ride in Manhattan, to take in all the beauty and craziness of NYC. The idea behind the photoshoot was to show the new luxury coupe in different environments and city life is one of them.
The Black Sapphire M850i stands out with its aggressive and luxurious design, paired with black wheels for a full blacked out look. With the new 8 Series, BMW happily offers some pretty good colors in the US, not just a black, white, silver and blue. There’s a Sunset Orange, two whites, three blacks (one is called grey but it’s basically black), the cool Sonic Speed Blue and the Barcelona Blue that we’ve seen so many times now. In addition, the 8 Series can be ordered with the help of BMW Individual in just about any paint job.
The 2019 M850i xDrive Coupe will start at $111,900 plus $995 Destination and Handling.
Standard equipment on the all-new 2019 BMW M850i xDrive will include Full LED headlights with BMW LaserLight technology, BMW Individual Merino Leather upholstery, sixteen-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, Sport Automatic Transmission, Adaptive M Suspension with Active-Roll Stabilization, M Sport Brakes, Parking Assistant and BMW Live Cockpit Professional with 12.3 inch and 10.25 inch digital displays, navigation and offering the latest generation of iDrive.
The all-new 2019 BMW M850i xDrive can also be ordered with optional Driving Assistant Professional, a 1,400 watt Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound system, Glass Controls for the gear selector, iDrive controller, start/stop button and audio volume knob and for the first time on a vehicle which is not an M model: a Carbon Fiber roof. Also available is a carbon fiber exterior trim package, including carbon inlays in the front and rear bumpers, large diffusor blades in the rear, and carbon mirror caps and rear spoiler.
The BMW M850i is powered by a 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.[Photos: FCOMKTG]
