BMW M850i xDrive

REVIEW

Back in the 1990’s BMW had a range-topping super coupe called the 8-Series – it was sleek, powerful and sold terribly but had a huge following. Fast forward and BMW used the 6-Series name again to replace it, but now the year is 2018 and BMW wanted to move their new coupe upmarket, so the 8-Series name was revived. And what a car it is – a stunning long, low coupe with no silly quirky details, just a seriously taught, muscular body and simply oozes style. This is no boulevard cruiser either, BMW are aiming this at the Aston DB11 V8 and Bentley Continental GT, but also at the Porsche 911 – it’s luxurious but also going to have a sporting character far more involving than the rivals. This M850i tops the range for now (there’s an M8 to come) and packs a 523bhp twin turbo V8, AWD for serious traction in all weather and can sprint to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds. There’s also every bit of tech that BMW has as this is based on the 7-Series platform, so even though it’s a big car if someone parks too close you can reverse it out of a space without even getting in. Madness! Cheaper than the rivals, great looking and packing amazing performance, this could be the super coupe of the year.
