BMW'S flagship 8 Series sports cars are getting a new look with styling revisions being made to all models in the range.

The changes see the Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe get revised grille designs while a new 12.3-inch display information display is added to the interior.

All models in the range are being refreshed including the high performance M8 Competition variants.

Prices start from £72,225 for the 840i Gran Coupe and top out from £132,800 for the M8 Competition Convertible.

The brand's latest "Iconic Glow" kidney grille debuts on the latest 8 Series while Merino leather upholstery and galvanic controls are now standard features.

The diesel-powered 840d xDrive variant is being withdrawn from the UK, leaving a choice of the range-topping V8 M850i xDrive or the six-cylinder 40i engines and depending on the engine the new 8 Series variants feature four-wheel drive or rear-wheel-drive.

Performance figures range from 0 to 62mph acceleration of 5.4 seconds for the 840i Gran Coupe to a blistering 3.2 seconds for the M8 Competition Coupe and Gran Coupe with their 4.4-litre V8 engines developing 625hp.

The regular 8 Series line up now tops out at £110,715 for the M850i xDrive Convertible while the M8 Competition models start from £123,300.

The new display screen increases in size from 10.25 inches and includes an online-based navigation system with BMW Maps and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant among its standard features.
