The 8 Series Convertible sits in an interesting little niche, costing much less than the bigger, plusher Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet and proving more practical than the Porsche 911 Convertible. But although it looks like a comfy cruiser, it can seriously motor on winding roads. Just don’t expect the same level of driver involvement that you get from the Porsche.

Trim: M850i

Engine: M850i xDrive

The 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 feels immensely flexible and impressively refined, imbuing the 8 Series with a sense of duality that entirely befits a continent-crushing open-topped GT. And, with the added traction of xDrive four-wheel drive, you can deploy all 523bhp with virtually no drama.
