8 Series Returns
In 1990 BMW introduced a flagship sport coupe called the 8 Series. Sure, we’re dating ourselves a bit, but we had the opportunity to drive that V12-powered BMW back in the day — and with its sleek lines and pop-up headlights, it certainly turned heads. After a 20-year hiatus (the initial production ended in 1999), the 8 Series is back, taking its rightful place at the top of the BMW food chain. The V12 is gone, but the new twin-turbo V8 in the M850i offers considerably more power than its predecessor, and now the 8 line includes a convertible and all-wheel drive.
