BMW sure has faithful fans. I recently saw a guy in a T-shirt that read, “Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy a 2019 BMW M850i, and that’s close enough.” It’ll be quite a bit of money — the all-new M850i is the German luxury brand’s latest, largest, and most expensive two-door coupe or convertible. The base price is $112,895 for the coupe, and $122,395 for the convertible, including a $995 destination charge.
This is the second generation of the BMW 8 Series. The first, a sexy two-door hardtop with pop up headlights, was sold from 1990 to 1999. It was a favorite of Pierce Brosnan during his James Bond years. Think of the new 2019 BMW M850i xDrive as the two-door version of the BMW 7 Series sedan. It competes with the Porsche 911, Mercedes Benz S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet, Bentley Continental GT, and Lexus LC.
