New BMW 8 Series Coupe | 2019 BMW 8 Series | Braman BMW Jupiter, FL

New BMW 8 Series Coupe Makes Its Debut

The new BMW 8 Series coupe relaunches the grand tourer line after a 20-year hiatus. This fall, you can expect the 2019 BMW 8 Series to wow in showrooms across the U.S.

Sculpted to Perfection

The new BMW 8 Series coupe is long and sleek. The front and rear are uniquely sculpted to deliver a rare silhouette that puts a new, aggressive spin on BMW styling. The front grille juts out. The lights are narrow – BMW’s slimmest in history – but their LaserLight technology makes them bright. The center channel recalls the lines of classic racers. It all comes together to make a car that looks like it’s leaning hard into the wind, even when it’s perfectly still. It has a constant sense of movement, like a race horse impatient for the starting gate to fly open.

Unrelenting Power

The engine is a beast that backs this single-minded need for speed up. The M850i xDrive performance model is the flagship, and it offers a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 at 523 horsepower. This produces a monstrous 553 pound-feet of torque. Combined with eight-speed automatic, rear-biased torque-vectoring all wheel drive, paddle shifters, and launch control system, and it can make driving to work feel like you’re counting down for lift-off. The 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds helps.

Luxury Built Around the Driver

As is standard for BMW, the 2019 BMW 8 Series will focus on luxury. Merino leather is set off by contrast stitching, and the wide center console offers a 10.25-inch touchscreen and complete control suite. BMW’s outpaced other makers when it comes to making the whole control suite focus on driver ease-of-use.

The number of bells-and-whistles is impressive, from head-up display, 16-speaker sound system, variable color ambient lighting, and four years of telematics standard, to options such as ventilated seats and the BMW digital key that allows you to start and unlock the car from your phone.

The new BMW 8 Series coupe is available soon. Make sure you lock one down before someone else leaves with yours.

In Love with Each Other and BMW

Driving can be an escape. It can be stress relief. It can be a passion. The meaning of driving amounts to a collection of experiences, and when those experiences are shared with someone else they become even more special. So it is for Nicholas and Tanya, who share many things: passions for art and wine, for running businesses, and for cars. Their BMW collection is a small fleet, including 2016 models such as the BMW 428, an X4, an X6, and an S28.

A BMW Collection for a BMW Family

Let’s meet the happy BMW-loving couple. Tanya is Campus Director for Capscare Academy, a nursing school in Lake Worth. Nicholas’ company, Complete Tech Solutions, helped the nursing school update its technological capabilities.

Since then, Tanya has started a wine label, Kemorene Wines, and together, she and Nicholas have opened a combination art gallery/wine-and-beer bar. Her knowledge of wine pairs well with his knowledge of craft beer, and they both have a passion for sharing art in a relaxed way with Lake Worth and its surrounding communities.

Along with their children, Tanya and Nicholas’s other “babies” are their BMWs and pair of MINIs.

A BMW for Every Occasion

Their BMW collection isn’t just another art collection, though. They use their vehicles every day, taking care of their children, running their businesses, and enjoying the bustling social life that comes from being such active local leaders.

Tanya started her driving experience with a convertible MINI, and worked her way up to the comfort of the 3 Series, and then later the performance of the 6 Series. She remembers walking into Braman BMW and cites Ralph Fonti as her first service advisor, someone who “looked out” for her and made sure she was getting the very best experience.

It says a lot that BMW cars for sale can be a part of helping people find and grow their passion for the finer things in life. Tanya and Nicholas enjoy the ability to safely transport their entire family on big nights out, and the fun of taking an exciting drive along the coast.

Driving can be many things: an escape, a passion, a source of relaxation or excitement. It can even be a building block that helps people achieve their dreams and lay the foundation for their future.

Subscription Service Makes Driving a BMW as Easy as Choosing a Netflix Movie

What if you could choose a BMW just like you’d choose a movie off of Netflix? This is the question driving a new pilot program in Nashville, Tennessee. The idea is that you can choose from BMW hybrids, electric models, and gas-powered beauties in a subscription service model. Select, click, drive.

Access by BMW

BMW’s smartphone-based app Access allows you to request a car, just like you would through Uber or Lyft. A concierge delivers it with a full tank of gas and set with your personal preferences. There is no limit to the number of times you can change cars; you can even swap them out daily.

The subscription service also includes maintenance, insurance, and even roadside assistance.

Types of BMW Available

There are different tiers in the pilot program, ranging from $2,000 to $3,700 a month. Each tier grants you access to a certain level of BMW choices. With the Legend tier, you can select from the 4 Series, 5 Series, X2, X5, M2, and a range of BMW hybrids such as the 530e iPerformance.

You can step that up to the M tier for your daily choice between the M5, M6, X5 M, and X6 M.

There are a few cars that aren’t accessible in the current version of the program: primarily the i3, i8, and 7 Series. We’ll likely see this change as the service develops.

A Car to Suit Every Purpose

Think of the service as mini BMW lease specials. But rather than subscribing to a certain car, you can subscribe to a service that brings you your choice of car for that day, week, month…however long you want it. When you decide you want a change-up, a concierge delivers your new ride.

This also offers opportunities for swapping out your choice of car for the week with a choice for the weekend – whether it’s one of the BMW hybrids in which you can take off down the highway, or it’s a crossover with cargo space for a family camping trip. When you get back, just switch again to your weekday preference. The possibilities are limitless.

New BMW For Sale Future Design

A Sneak Peek at the Future of BMW Design

If you’re looking for a new BMW for sale, you’re thinking about how these unique, assertive cars will look and perform in the future. We have a few indicators for how the legendary brand will continue to evolve.

1. Simplify the Interior

You can have a beautiful interior and still make it over-complicated. Many luxury automakers have fallen into the trap of thinking more design and more tech is always better. Yet this can quickly overwhelm and distract a driver. It can take away from what’s already beautiful: the driving experience. The interior form and language of future BMWs will be elegant without over-complicating things.

Technology should be there to make your life less stressful, not more so. When you’re looking for a new BMW for sale, chances are you’ll recognize this. You can already see BMW streamlining this approach in their 2018 models and new 2019 models soon to come out. Therefore, going forward, the technology will remain built around the driver for easy use.

2. Keep the Hallmarks in Each New BMW For Sale

One thing that won’t change are key visual hallmarks. BMW has been very conscious of keeping the twin-kidney grille out front, even evoking it on electric models that don’t need it. The narrow but bright headlight presentation is something else that shouts BMW. When you’re searching for a new BMW for sale, you’ll realize these aspects of the BMW design are so distinctive that it doesn’t make sense to deviate. Sure the look will continue to be updated, but expect evolutionary changes that still keep a BMW looking like a BMW.

3. Push the Envelope on Driving Dynamics

That said, BMW expects to continue pushing forward driving performance to further enhance the driver experience. Even before appearance, the mark of a BMW is the driving feel: low center of gravity, firm grip on the road, aggression out of the turn and true control in inclement weather. New technologies help cars think with you, feeling road conditions and making adjustments to lend you more control no matter what the situation. This gives you a better, faster, more nimble drive while keeping you and your family safer.

BMW lease specials are a great way to try out a Bimmer before shifting to newer models. Stop by your Jupiter, Florida BMW dealership to test drive a new BMW for sale and to discover how the brand is changing and evolving.

BWM McLaren Super Car | Braman

McLaren Could Team Up to Create a New BMW Car

The rumor mill has been spinning for quite some time now when it comes to a potential new BMW car. The most recent to come up again and again is the concept of the McLaren engine appearing in a future BMW vehicle. It’s not a bad idea. If so, will it end up at a BMW dealer?

BWM McLaren Super Car | Braman

In 1992, McLaren and BMW teamed up, resulting in a McLaren F1 and powered by a BMW 6.1-liter V12 engine. The F1 supercar was the result of something impressive – and it hit the Monaco Grand Prix with some interesting results. However, since then the two haven’t teamed up again– until now.

At least, that’s the rumor.

So far there is no model name and only a handful of details that trickle out here and there. Whether these details are true to form, only time will tell. These details include it being a two-seater, mid-engine coupe, and feature a carbon fiber monocoque. The engine is said to be a 4.0-liter V8 that will use four turbochargers, and produce 750 hp.

So will this new BMW car end up at a BMW dealer? There’s no way to know right now. Thus far everything has been speculation. We like to think we know what the car may contain, what it will be priced at, and the number of units that could sell, but until BMW does a formal announcement, there is no way to be certain.

What’s the rumor mill have to say about the car’s release date? Someday 2017 – and those are probably the most optimistic ones – as others say 2019. In the end, if you’re interested in a new BMW car for yourself, don’t hold out on this one. Instead, visit a BMW dealer and find one that you love that you can take home today.

Here at the premier BMW new and used car dealership in Jupiter, Florida, Braman BMW Jupiter, all of our team members look forward to the festive holiday season. One of our favorite things to do during the holidays is to enjoy all of the seasonal music that makes this time of year so special. “The 12 Days of Christmas” is one such tune that inspires us to think about the many ways we can celebrate the gift of BMW during the holidays. So we came up with our list of 12 reasons why we should celebrate why BMWs are “The Ultimate Driving Machine™.” Here then is our “12 Days of BMW.”

The First Day – Celebrating BMW’s Proud Heritage

BMW began its journey toward being one of the world’s finest automakers in 1916 when aircraft engine manufacturer Rapp Motorenwerke became Bayerische Motorenwerke. BMW originally began manufacturing automobiles in 1929 when it purchased a company that built “Austin Sevens” vehicles. BMW re-tooled these vehicles and, in 1936, began production of the BMW 328 sports car. Continue reading
