2019 BMW 8 Series convertible spied almost camouflage-free

The BMW 8 Series convertible has been spied ready for an on-stage debut in, it seems, the very near future.

As is the norm for these things, BMW 8 Series convertible looks exactly like the coupe with accommodations made for its electric folding soft-top...

2018 BMW 8 Series previewed on the track

The 2018 BMW 8 Series has been put through its paces in Italy, as the flagship coupe edges closer to a full reveal.
