After more than two decades away, the BMW 8 Series is finally back. The first to arrive in the US is the M850i xDrive model, which is available as a coupe or convertible. Under the hood is a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque going out to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic. 0-60 mph takes just 3.6 seconds, though there is an even quicker M8 on the way. Pricing starts at $111,900 for the coupe and from behind the wheel, it feels worth every penny.

      +Doug's Cars yeah, but automatics sucked in those days and that 7 Series was probably the same size as a modern 3 Series.

      Jared Rosenholtz Better is definitely debatable. I’d counter with more fun...for the right people. I definitely enjoyed lots of time in a manual E32 735i in high school owned by a buddy’s grandfather! That’s a pretty big car.

      On a massive car like this, a manual would make ZERO sense. It wouldn't make it any better.
