The base audio system has 11 speakers, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon system is optional, and the top choice is a 16-speaker, 1,375-watt Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System.
On the safety front, BMW equips the 8-Series with forward collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, a 360-degree camera system, and an automatic parallel parking system. Optional safety and semi-autonomous driving features include adaptive cruise control, active lane control, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitors, cross-traffic alerts, night vision, and even an evasion function.
Pricing and additional models have not been announced. Look for that information closer to launch this fall.
