All-New 2023 BMW 8-Series & M8- Now With New Design & Colors!
2023 BMW 8-Series and M8-Overview
The BMW 8-series nameplate was restored in 2019 for a dashing coupe, convertible, and four-door “Gran Coupe” to sit atop the lineup after being dormant since 1999.
In addition, BMW has shown a slight facelift for the 2023 8-series, including front-end design modifications, new colors, and a few inside upgrades.
Here are the three major highlights:
- All 8-series & M8 models have a 12.3-inch center screen, up from 10.3 inches, and new colors are available across the board.
- M Carbon bucket seats are now available for the M8, with a new color scheme of black and Sakhir Orange.
- For 2023, BMW has revised the 8-series and M8 with a new grille that is now lit as standard.
Design & Aesthetic
A standard lighted grille with larger slats is the most noticeable change to the 8-series’ appearance.
The M850i xDrive receives the M8’s aerodynamic side-view mirrors, as well as an M logo in the front.
In addition, dark M Shadowline trim is added to the grille and headlights, black brake calipers, and a black rear spoiler, as part of the new M Sport Package Professional for the coupe. There are two new 20-inch wheel designs to choose from.
You will get to choose five different colors:
- Skyscraper Grey
- San Remo Green
- Portimao Blue
- BMW Individual Frozen Tanzanite Blue
- Frozen Pure Grey
M Shadowline highlights in the headlights are standard on the M8, only offered in the 617-hp Competition trim.
The M8 now comes in five additional hues, including Brooklyn Grey, Isle of Man Green, Portimao Blue, and San Remo Green.
M Carbon bucket seats (initially seen on the M3 and M4) are available for the M8.
They are heated and electronically adjustable, with a light-up M8 emblem in the headrest and a memory feature for the driver’s seat.
A new black and Sakhir Orange color combination is available for the Merino leather and Alcantara.
The center infotainment display on all 8-series models, including the M8, has been upgraded from 10.25 to 12.3 inches.
In addition, to commemorate BMW M’s 50th anniversary, the M850i xDrive and M8 can be ordered with the old-school BMW Motorsport logo instead of the usual BMW badge.
BMW has also revealed a special 8 X Jeff Koons edition, which will sport a vibrant paint scheme created by the American artist and comprised eleven hues. It will be made public on February 17th.
For 2023, the 840i’s base price remains intact, but BMW has yet to release pricing for the remainder of the lineup. In March, production of the 2023 8-series and M8 will begin.
