The BMW 8 Series is a luxury sports car that’s something of an automotive icon. Its legacy commenced in 1989 with its E31 model. The 8 Series was then revived in 2018 with the G15 model, which includes the coupé, convertible and gran coupé. It is acclaimed for its luxury features, performance and cutting-edge engineering, making the 8 Series a standout choice within the BMW line-up.

The 8 Series was the first road car to feature a V12 engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and electronic drive-by-wire throttle technology. It was also one of BMW's early adopters of a multi-link rear axle system, showcasing its commitment to advanced engineering.

The 8 Series competes in its sector alongside the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé, Lexus LC and Porsche 911. As well as its impressive and powerful engine lineup, the 8 Series stands out for its stylish design and innovative technology that boost its overall appeal.

The 8 Series has also been praised for its roomy interior, earning a spot on J.D. Power's prestigious Best Large Premium Car of 2022 list.

BMW 8 Series updates and facelifts

The 8 Series comes in three body styles: a two-door coupé, a two-door convertible and a four-door coupé.

The BMW 8 Series Coupé (G15), produced between 2018 and 2022. While the interior roofline was slightly lowered, BMW introduced a carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof which contributed to lowering the vehicle's centre of gravity andenhancing its handling.

From 2022, the 8 Series Coupé featured a double-bubble design with a central indentation that covered the car's body from the windscreen to the rear window. All 8 Series models were equipped with an M-package, showcasing a V-shaped centre grille nestled within the bumper and flanked by two broad air scoops facilitating airflow to the front brake discs.

Most used 8 Series trims are available in petrol and diesel engine variants with an automatic gearbox.

Practicality and style of the car

The BMW 8 Series has 420 litres of luggage capacity, making it bigger than some family hatchbacks, enhancing its usability as a grand tourer.

Opting for the convertible variant reduces the boot capacity to 350 litres to make room for the folding roof mechanism It also includes 50/50 split-fold rear seats, which can be operated from inside the boot. The rear seats of the Gran Coupé are configured in a 40/20/40 arrangement to accommodate various cargo sizes.

Comparatively, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé offers a boot capacity of 400 litres, while the Lexus LC has asmaller boot capacity of 197 litres.

The towing capacity of the BMW 8 Series reaches up to 1,600kg, allowing it to tow small trailers, sports equipment, utility trailers and motorcycle transport.

Running costs

The insurance groups of the BMW 8 Series range between groups 44 and 50, reflecting the performance capabilities of its engines. Comparatively, the Lexus LC is assigned a higher insurance rate, falling in groups 48 to 50. The BMW 8 Series presents a slightly less costly alternative that doesn’t compromise on engine performance.

The road tax rate for the 8 Series is typically around £570 per year across all engines and trims, reflecting the car’s powerful performance and higher emissions.
