    This is the new BMW 8 Series Convertible

    Written by Vijay Pattni

    Like for like, here is a twin-turbo, convertible V8 BMW that"s over 100kg heavier and two-tenths slower to 62mph than its equivalent twin-turbo, coupe V8 BMW. So, welcome everyone, to the inevitable: the new BMW 8 Series Convertible, the second variant in the all-new 8er line-up before the Gran Coupe arrives to complete the range. We"ve had the Coupe and come away impressed by its technical ability but unsure of its specialness and seen the M8 GTE racer. This Convertible features a folding cloth roof, said to offer superb sound insulation and one that "pulls taut over the interior when closed". Well, you"d certainly hope so.

    The old 8 series was a good looking car. This thing should have been aborted a long time before production.

    I have a theory that is proven almost every day.
    9 times out of 10, when you see someone driving like an arsehole, they are in a German car.
    Of those 9 out of 10, 9 out of 10 are in BMW’s.
