Start of production in Dingolfing: First BMW 8 Series Convertible rolls off the line.

Dubai, UAE, November 26, 2018:  Second BMW 8 Series model from Lower Bavaria +++ Open sportscar with classic textile soft top +++ Market launch in March 2019 with two model variants  Dingolfing. Four months after production of the new BMW 8 Series Coupé ramped up in Dingolfing, the BMW 8 Series family is joined by another new addition from Lower Bavaria. Earlier this week, BMW Group Plant Dingolfing began series production of the new BMW 8 Series Convertible, which will be built alongside BMW 5 Series and 7 Series variants on a single assembly line. The BMW Group has invested a total amount in the low three-digit-million-euro range in the new model family at the site in Lower Bavaria, strengthening Dingolfing’s role as the lead plant for the upper luxury-class segment.

Newly developed textile soft top 

The driver and passengers on board the new BMW 8 Series Convertible are protected from the elements by a classical soft-top. The multi-layered roof stands out with its weight-minimising design and superb acoustic insulation.

The new BMW 8 Series Convertible comes with a black soft-top as standard, with an Anthracite Silver effect variant available as an option. The soft-top opens and closes fully automatically. 15 seconds is all it takes.

Two model variants available from launch

Two engine choices will be available when the new BMW 8 Series Convertible goes on sale in March 2019: A V8 engine in the BMW M850i xDrive Convertible (combined fuel consumption: 9.9 – 10.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 229 – 225 g/km)* delivers impressive power that can be experienced in particularly exhilarating fashion with the top down. The latest generation of the 4.4-litre eight-cylinder engine has been completely redeveloped to deliver a performance topping out at 530 hp and a torque of 750 Nm.

The BMW 840d xDrive Convertible relies on a diesel engine (combined fuel consumption: 6.3 – 5.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 165 – 155 g/km)* unlike anything else in the competitive environment to deliver superior traction and low fuel consumption. The 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder diesel power unit generates a maximum output of 320 hp and a maximum torque of 680 Nm. 

Both engine variants comply with the Euro 6d TEMP emissions standard. Power transmission is achieved through the eight-speed Steptronic sport gearbox and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive.
