The 8 Series Convertible sits in an interesting little niche, costing much less than the bigger, plusher Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet and Bentley Continental GTC and potentially cheaper than the Porsche 911 Convertible. Just don’t expect the same level of driver involvement that you get from the 911 or the same luxurious interior or wafty ride as the S-Class or Continental.

Trim: M850i

The M850i adds a sports exhaust system, lightweight 20in wheels and the M Sport differential, for that added cornering traction. It also gets four-wheel steering as standard.

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.
