The new BMW 8 series was one of the first cars to get launched as India started opening up post the lockdown in May. And along with it also came the more powerful M8 to make both of them the new flagships for the brand in the country. carandbike already reviewed the car last year in the beautiful Portugal in the exact same 840i specIfIcation that has made its way to India. And in this video we're telling you how does the car behave on our unforgiving roads. We drove the base variant of the car which gets more chrome when comapred to the M-sport and yes the slats on the kidney grille are adjustable. This one is both taller and wider than the coupe and that will just translate to more space inside. The sleek wraparound LED tail lamps, skid plates with dual exhausts and the curved spoiler that integrates beautifully into the body. In all there there are 6 colour options to choose from in the base variant you see here, while the M-sport can be bought with 10 different exterior colour options. Inside the big 12.3 inch instrument cluster behind the steering wheel is likeable. It is all digital but looks analog which is a nice combination. It gives you every single information you're looking for while driving this car. Then there's the 2 part large panaromic glassroof, wireless charger and ambient lighting in 6 different colours. Centred around black and white, there are many inteior trims to choose from. The M-sport variant gets climate controls for the rear seat passengers and you also get a 16 speaker Harman sound system. The 3.0 litre 6 cylinnder twin turbo peetrol engine churns out a maximum power of 340 bhp, and a peak torque of 500 nm.
