2019 BMW M850i | Review



The M850i is an incredible car that completely blew us away.

BMW set out with a vision for their flagship vehicle and the M850i marries all the characteristics they were hoping for. It's a true sportscar that lives up to what all models with the number "8" in the name represent: highly sporty and emotional. At the same time, the M850i is comfortable and luxurious and it has been described as a grand tourer as well.

Specifications:
  • 4.4L twin-turbo V8 (redeveloped N63B44T3)
  • 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission
  • 525 horsepower
  • 553 lb.-ft. torque
  • All-wheel drive (BMW xDrive), rear-wheel biased
