The BMW sports car is a common sight on the driveways of many performance enthusiasts in the USA. They come in a host of different guises, from lavish convertibles to hybrid-powered supercars. Shoppers in the segment are spoiled for choice, which comes as no surprise given that the automaker has based its success on exotic packaging and impressive power outputs. None of these are cheap, however, but they have some of the best ratings on the market. All we’re saying is, there is a reason so many Bimmers are on the road in so many forms, whether it is a 2-seater or a go-fast SUV.
The newest BMW sports cars all have something in common, and that’s premium quality. They vary in terms of size, power figures, and handling capability, but they all have some similarities:
Pricing - New BMW sports cars are not cheap. We’re talking about fancy luxury autos with abundant power and convenience, so you can’t expect them to cost too little. The MSRP tells you if you’re going to experience premium quality or outrageous grandeur.
Colors - The impressive color palette dares you to choose a color other than white or black, with metallic blues and rich reds dominating the selection.
Power outputs - You can expect plenty of horsepower from this category, in particular, thanks to powerful turbocharged engines that also deliver impressive mpg figures when you compare them to rivals. The most eager engines are reserved for M-division variants.
Size - The dimensions vary according to the different specs, but there aren’t many that are truly small. The M8 Gran Coupe, for instance, is an extremely large BMW coupe sports car.
