2020 BMW 8-Series Convertible – BMW is preparing replacements for its 6-Series coupe and cabriolet, but will position the new cars higher in the Series 8 territory. The automaker confirmed the move in May 2017 with the unveiling of the series 8 concept at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. However, the car was no secret because the prototypes of a Series 8 coupe have been tested in public for some time now. Our latest spy photos and video show a prototype of what is intended to be the 8 Series convertible. The original 8 Series never gave birth to a convertible, although BMW has managed to build a prototype.
We have already seen a prototype for the 2020 BMW 8-Series Convertible, and today we have our first look at a prototype for a Series 8 Cabriolet undergoing winter testing. The original 8er only had a prototype without a roof. So, technically, this is going to be a brand new product that BMW has never offered before.
With the top up, the 8er seems a little smoother than the Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet. However, it is still too early to say what the design will look like. Under this black fabric should be a decently spacious 4-seater cabin with all the bells it can borrow from the Series 7 sedan.
Beneath all the camouflage and bodywork is BMW’s CLAR platform, infused with carbon fiber. However, we are not expecting a featherweight car because of all the luxury goodies that need to be stacked. Again, expect a slightly larger replacement and a little lighter for the 6 Series Cabrio.
The post stated that the BMW brand documents suggest that the 8 series will appear models 850, 860 and M850. The range will carry the V8 and V12 engines. The M Performance Series 8 will most likely be equipped with the new 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo engine, which will be introduced this year in the upcoming BMW M5. The power of the car will be distributed via an 8-speed automatic transmission and paired with the latest M Division M-Drive transmission.
