The BMW M850i xDrive coupé escalates the new 8-Series to new heights in luxury and performance. It’s potent 4.4 litre twin turbocharged V8 engine cranks 530 hp with 750 Nm of peak torque over a wide rev range. It is one of the most technologically advanced automobiles in the history of the brand. Increased intelligence and intuition expands the scope of digital connectivity between people, vehicles, and services.
BMW EfficientLightweight design expands intelligence beyond electronics. It’s an impressive array of lightweight high-strength components consisting of aluminium, carbon, and magnesium. The result is a reduction in overall fuel consumption, improved performance, and vehicle dynamics. Note the frameless side windows, it’s the first use of such in this body style.

Hello Stan! I agree, some of the navigation systems (Cadillac) leaves one at the “DUH” stage until one just gives up pretending not to need the info they were seeking….why must they make things so un-user friendly? One needs a degree/GPS for the test drive too!
