  • Auto Start Stop adapts to driving situation based on navigation data and by use of cameras and radar sensors of the optional driver assistance systems to prevent inefficient engine shutdown – for example when stopping briefly at junctions with yield signs. The movement of vehicles ahead is registered in order to determine the ideal moment for stopping and starting the engine.

The switch to this “sail” mode only takes place in driving situations in which it appears worthwhile and which doesn’t compromise comfort or performance. If the accelerator is released very suddenly for instance, the powertrain stays connected in order to use the engine’s drag torque to decelerate.

Car looks good, but the back is a bit busy. Overall, looks pretty clean. I hope this thing outperforms the competition and that Bmw continues the current trend of making drivers cars once again.

3.6 to 60mph for the M850?? Wow. Realistically this is a low 3 sec car. Can't imagine what the M8 could do.

Any speculation on price point? Guessing $110K+ fully loaded?

Interior is decent but not really up to snuff for this price point.
