I get to take a look around the brand new BMW 8 Series Convertible. The car I get to look at is the 4.4L V8 engined M850i xDrive, with 530BHP. We get to see the roof mechanism in action, along with the storage space offered by the new soft-top grand tourer.
BMW will be firstly launching the M850i and 840d models in the Convertible variant, which can have it's folding soft top roof operated using the key. I filmed this in a private studio, but the car will be introduced to the market in 2019, so this is a first look at the similarities between the Coupe version of the 8 Series.
