BMW Malaysia has begun accepting bookings for the new G15 8 Series, which was first unveiled back in June last year. Based on the dedicated website set up by the company, it’ll cost you RM5,000 to register your interest but it isn’t stated what variant will be offered nor how much the total cost will be.

For now, only two variants of the 8 Series is being offered in other markets. The first is the 840d xDrive that packs a 3.0 litre twin-turbo straight-six diesel engine with 320 PS and 680 Nm of torque. Important figures include a zero to 100 km/h time of 4.9 seconds, plus a combined fuel consumption of between 5.9-6.2 litres per 100 km.

The other option comes in the form of the M850i xDrive, which packs an upgraded version of the M550i‘s 4.4 litre biturbo petrol V8. The mill churns out 530 PS and 750 Nm, allowing for a quicker century sprint time of 3.7 seconds.

Both engines come with an eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission by default, along with the brand’s proprietary all-wheel drive system. If we had to guess, the petrol variant is the most likely to come our way.

The 8 Series was first previewed by the similarly-named Concept 8 Series that made a stop in Kuala Lumpur last year. A grand tourer in every sense of the term, the model combines sporty dynamics with a plush cabin, the latter also containing the latest BMW technologies like OS 7.0 and Live Cockpit Professional.

Intrigued? Well, you can now register your interest and place your booking at BMW Malaysia’s dedicated website. Now, let’s all try and guess how much BMW’s flagship luxury coupe will cost.
