BMW tease new 8-series convertible

BMW have teased prototype images of their upcoming luxury 4-seat convertible, that will soon go up against rivals such as the Mercedes S-Class and Bentley Continental GTC.

The convertible is likely to feature the same engine range as the coupe version, including the 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 from the M850i, which generates 523bhp. An entry-level 840d will probably feature with 315bhp. Expect the same technology as the coupe, including rear-wheel steering and active anti-roll stabilisation.

There is no confirmation of price yet, however we can expect the soft-top GT to cost more than the £100k coupe when it goes on sale in early 2019.
