The BMW 8 Series looks great on its production line

Unsure about the new-age 8 Series? Have a look at these images

BMW’s design has ruffled a few feathers lately. The latest Z4 and 3 Series have certainly split opinion, though our eyes reckon the 8 Series is a bit more successful.

A lot more successful if these new pictures are anything to go by. It’s the new 8 Series Convertible, only just revealed to the world but already in production at BMW’s Dingolfing plant in southern Germany.

Whether it’s the sparkling blue paint, the juxtaposition against an industrial backdrop or simply that the 8 Series is actually a great piece of design, we’re sold. It looks exceedingly handsome even if this 840d, as a diesel-powered luxury convertible, is bordering on being an oxymoron. Sure, it’ll be flipping fast, but if you’re spending this sort of money you should really go the whole hog and have the M850i with its twin-turbo petrol V8.

We’d err towards the coupe, too, but it’s hard to deny that this is one of the more successful hard- to soft-top transitions in recent years. Side-by-side, they both look ace.

Or is that just us? Feel free to tell us how wrong we are below…
