BMW:The new BMW 8 Series Convertible.
- Premiere for the second model in the new BMW 8 Series
luxury-class line-up: New BMW 8 Series Convertible combines
dynamic flair and serene long-distance ability with a sumptuous
open-top driving experience.
- Open-air driving pleasure for four people. Classical soft-top
roof with fully electric, extremely quiet operation, minimised
weight and outstanding acoustic comfort. Roof opens and closes in
15 seconds at the touch of a button and when travelling at up to
50 km/h (31 mph). Soft-top in Black as standard or Anthracite
Silver effect as an option.
- Standalone interpretation of emotionally rich exterior styling
based on the new, clear and precise BMW design language. Familiar
BMW proportions and elegantly flowing lines stand out particularly
clearly with the roof down. Compact, taut soft-top generates
distinctive “deck” silhouette.
- Wide, sporty rear-end design underlines the low-slung stance of
the new BMW 8 Series Convertible.
- Exterior and interior design work together harmoniously. Gently
rising shoulderline; surrounds for the side windows and soft-top
lid merge. Front and rear seats embraced in a flowing movement.
Sophisticated design for soft-top compartment with subtle domes
and surfacing that takes its cues from the instrument panel and

consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power
consumption figures were determined according to the
European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable.
The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in
Germany. The range shown considers the different sizes of
the selected wheels/tyres and the selected items of optional
equipment, and may vary during configuration.
The values are already based on the new WLTP test cycle and
are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to
ensure comparability between the vehicles. With respect to
these vehicles, for vehicle-related taxes or other duties
based (at least inter alia) on CO2 emissions, the
CO2 values may differ from the values stated here
(depending on national legislation).
Further information on official fuel consumption figures
and specific CO2 emission values of new passenger
cars is included in the following guideline: ‘Leitfaden über
den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und
den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen’ (Guide to the
fuel economy, CO2 emissions and electric power
consumption of new passenger cars), which can be obtained
