2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible Rolls off the Line - Motor Trend

BMW has begun production of the 8 Series Convertible in Dingolfing, Germany, ahead of the car's market launch in March.

The convertible will share an assembly line with the 5 Series and 7 Series. The Dingolfing plant also produces the 3 Series, 4 Series, and 6 Series.

BMW has been producing the new 8 Series coupe at the Dingolfing plant since July. The M850i xDrive coupe goes on sale in the U.S. in December priced from $112,895. The convertible version will be slightly more expensive with a starting price of $122,395.

The convertible arrives with a standard fabric soft top. With the push of a button, the roof can be raised or lowered in 15 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph.

The 8 Series packs a 4.4-liter turbocharged V-8 making 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The engine will propel the convertible to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, or 0.2 second slower than the coupe, BMW says. Europe also gets a less potent 3.0-liter inline-six diesel engine option.
