BMW hasn’t had an in-production 8 series for some time now – this makes us sad as we are quite big fans of the previous generation big GT. Well, things are set to change as BMW are now teasing the Concept M8 Gran Coupe and we think it looks really rather magnificent.
“The BMW 8 Series will take over as the new flagship model of the BMW line-up and, as such, combines unsurpassed sportiness and elegance,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design. “The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe offers a look ahead to the most exotic and alluring variant of the new BMW 8 Series.”
Billed as a luxury sports car with four doors but offering an emotional appeal too, we reckon that this car won’t be cheap but will absolutely be worth the on the road pricing. It features the latest BMW design language, which shows off some fantastic side strakes and beautiful curves over the rear arches. We reckon there’s a hint of Aston Martin in some of those lines.
The new model sees the BMW Group looking ahead to the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and BMW M8 Gran Coupe, which will be presented during the course of 2019 and round off the BMW 8 Series family. Look out for more information here as it becomes available.
