BMW will reintroduce the 8-series coupe, the first new 8 series in 20 years, with the 2019 M850i xDrive awd variant. The latest 8 series is powered by a new version of BMWs TwinPower Turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine that generates 523 hp and 553 pound-feet of torque. It features an oversized version of BMWs dual kidney grille with adjustable slats and large air intakes at the corners. The LED headlights are the slimmest in BMWs lineup. The coupe will go on sale in the U.S. in the fourth quarter.

The 2019 M850i xDrive convertible is powered by a new version of BMW's TwinPower Turbo 4.4-liter, V-8 engine that generates 523 hp. The soft-top, four-seater launches in March 2019 and starts at $122,395, including shipping.

Addition 2020

An M8 performance version has been confirmed for the first half of 2020. An 8-series Gran Coupe variant also is expected in late 2019, and a plug-in hybrid version could arrive in 2021.
