2024 BMW 8 Series Price, Reviews, Pictures & More | Kelley Blue Book
The 2024 BMW 8 Series starts at $89,400. This is for either the regular 2-door Coupe or the 4-door Gran Coupe with the 840i powertrain. Coupes and Gran Coupes have the same starting prices with the other engines as well. The most affordable 8 Series Convertible starts at almost $100K. These 840i models have rear-wheel drive as standard, with all-wheel drive available as a $3,000 option.
At the pricier end, we configured an M8 Competition Convertible on BMW’s retail site and added enough options to reach almost $175K. Although Alpina is an independent tuner creating more-exclusive-than-M versions of BMWs, they can still be ordered through BMW dealers and have the same factory warranty.

These are the manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRP) and do not include the $995 factory-to-dealer delivery fee (destination charge).
For comparison, the Lexus LC is priced from about the mid-90s. A couple of generations ago, the Porsche 911 might have been considered too small and insufficiently plush to compete in this automotive sphere, but it’s a serious contender now — starting at around $115K. The opulent Mercedes-Benz SL has a pedigree that the 8 Series cannot match, but a starting price of around $140K. Or go even more exotic with an Aston Martin Vantage from about $145K.
Alternatives to the Gran Coupe models include the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door (starting in the $100K region) or even the Porsche Panamera (from about $92K).
Before buying a new 8 Series luxury coupe or convertible, check the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price to know what you should be paying. Resale values may not be so important at this level, but the Lexus LC and Porsche Panamera tend to do better than the 8 Series in this respect.
What’s New for 2024
There are no significant changes to the 8 Series this year. Buyers interested in the convertible or regular coupe models might want to take the plunge now, as there have been rumblings that a future 8 Series range may consist of Gran Coupe variants only.
