BMW M8 Convertible: what would you like to read next?
The BMW M8 Convertible is a soft-top version of the M8 Coupe that comes with an equally powerful 625hp engine and similarly sporty looks.
To help you tell it apart from the standard 8 Series Convertible, you get more aggressive bumpers, larger exhausts, new alloy wheels and plenty of optional carbon fibre bits and pieces.
Inside, you’ll find an even plusher interior than the standard BMW 8 Series Convertible with huge swathes of leather trim on the dashboard, doors and more supportive sports seats. Mostly unchanged from the standard car is the BMW M8 Convertible’s infotainment system that consists of a central touchscreen and a digital driver’s display.
The BMW M8 Convertible’s 625hp engine makes it one of the fastest drop-tops on sale.
Under the bonnet, you’ll find a few more tweaks that all help the BMW M8 Convertible’s 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 engine produce 625hp. This power is transmitted to all four wheels through an automatic gearbox that helps this speed soft-top sprint from 0-60mph in less than four seconds.
You can even set the four-wheel-drive system to send as much as 100% of the engine’s power to the rear wheels – just the thing if you fancy feeling not just the wind, but plenty of tyre smoke, in your hair on a race track.
