The practicality of the BMW M8 Convertible is influenced by its sporty nature and the convertible design. While it offers a thrilling driving experience and ample comfort for the occupants, practicality in terms of everyday usability is somewhat compromised. The rear seats, for instance, can be tight for adults, making them better suited for shorter journeys or for smaller passengers. Additionally, the convertible design impacts the available cargo space.

The boot space in the BMW M8 Convertible is influenced by its convertible roof mechanism. When the roof is up, it provides a reasonable 350 litres of boot space. However, when the soft-top roof is retracted, the available boot space is reduced, typically occupying a portion of the trunk area. This is a common characteristic in convertible cars. The amount of space available may limit the capacity for larger items or luggage, especially when the roof is stowed.

This power is efficiently delivered to all four wheels via an automatic gearbox, propelling the convertible from 0-60mph in under four seconds.
