BMW decided when it replaced the previous generation 6 series model to take its replacement upmarket to be able to compete with rivals such as the Mercedes S-Class Coupe, the Audi A7 and Mercedes CLS, and AMG GT 4 door, and to an extent Luxury brands like Bentley and Aston Martin too, and that required a renaming policy to show the car's more luxurious position, hence the 8 Series being the new flagship models of the BMW line-up. Available to lease in a 2 door Coupe format, a 2 door Convertible and also a 4 door Gran Coupe, the 8 Series is based loosely on the underpinnings of the 5 Series model with a combination of rear wheel drive and 4 wheel drive layouts, though considering it a 5 Series Coupe would be to completely miss the mark.
The 2021 8 Series is available with several different powertrain options in the UK: there's the 840i Petrol which has a 3.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 340 horsepower and rear wheel drive (as denoted by "sDrive"), there's the 840d Diesel which uses a 3.0 litre diesel engine giving 320 horsepower and has BMW's xDrive 4 wheel drive system as standard, and there's the M850i model which again has xDrive as standard and gives a huge 530 horsepower from its 4.4 litre V8 petrol, and in most car ranges that would easily be the top performance model but BMW has saved the best til last - the M8 with a variant of the same 4.4 litre V8 but giving a massive 625 horsepower in the competition model giving it true supercar performance, with a 0-60 time of just 3.3 seconds.
The new 2021 BMW 8 Series is available to lease in the following colours: Barcelona blue, Dravit Grey, Alpine White, Carbon Black, Black Sapphire, Sunset Orange, Mineral White, Sonic Speed Blue, Tanzanite Blue, Aventurine Red and Frozen Bluestone.
