After a 20 year hiatus, the 8 Series returns and for the first time ever BMW is offering the luxury cruiser in drop-top guise. The 2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible will arrive in the US in March 2019, carrying a price tag of $121,400 (plus $995 destination). That’s a $9,500 bump compared to the coupe. The launch model will be available exclusively in M850i xDrive trim, with a 4.4-liter V8 sending 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels via an eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission. Sprinting from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, with a limited top speed of 155 mph, the soft-top, four-seat 8 Series Convertible comes packed with cutting-edge tech, low-slung aggressive styling and an all-year round driving experience.
