BMW 8 Series 2023.. BMW 8 Series 2023. While rumors suggest that BMW is considering merging the 4 Series and 8 Series coupes and convertibles in the second half of the decade, possibly reviving the 6 Series , the German automaker is doing a series of tweaks and additions to its top-of-the-line sports model for the 2023 model year.
The current 8 Series (Coupé, Cabriolet and four-door Gran Coupé) is indeed halfway through its journey. No changes are made under the hood, but the design is modernized slightly.
For example, there is a new illuminated grille with «U» bars (the driver can turn it off manually if he wishes), reworked air intakes, aerodynamic mirror caps, new optional 20-inch rims as well as four new paint colors, including San Remo Green and Portimao Blue.
The M Sport Professional package adds the Shadowline finish with black grille, black calipers for the M Sport brakes, M Shadowline headlights and a black M rear spoiler exclusive to the M850i xDrive coupe. The latter as well as the high-performance M8 Competition can also receive a classic emblem on the hood, trunk and rims to mark the 50th anniversary of the M division of BMW.
Inside, the BMW Live Cockpit Professional interface is now included as standard, combining 12.3-inch digital instrumentation with an equally sized central touchscreen (previously 10.25-inch), all powered by the system. seventh-generation iDrive infotainment (not BMW’s EV iDrive 8).
The big V8 remains in place.
Remember that the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 generates 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque in the M850i xDrive version, but 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft in the M8 Competition. For 2023, the second can feature new carbon M seats as well as a combination of Black and Orange Sakhir leather with Alcantara suede.
