The BMW 8 Series Concept Has Come To Light


There was alot of buzz about the new BMW 8 concept especially the 8 series Coupe. A trailer had already been released by BMW, but then from no where, the photos of the car got leaked online by probably those anonymous snitches leaking information in U.S. So BMW thought "what the heck?" and so they unveiled it officially the next day 26th May at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy.




The front of the concept looks exciting with an angled razor-sharp kidney grille which is positioned closer to the ground while narrow inward sloping hexagonal headlights remind onlookers that this 8 Series is still part of the BMW family. 

The rear end, for example, features L-shaped taillights that stretch deep into the center, following a line that begins at the pronounced rear wheel arches and help give the Bimmer a slight squat. A long hood, flowing roofline, and a steep trailing edge merge grace, confidence, and power into a single body that sits on large 21-inch light-alloy wheels.

The interior feels just as special even though it remains focused on a single task: driving. That’s hinted by forward-facing lines strewn around the cabin and red-anodized shift paddles, but BMW was sure to add leather, carbon fiber, and aluminum accents to keep up the luxurious grand tourer feel. 

Because it’s a concept, BMW has not said what it will be packing under the hood but there are rumours that it will be BMW’s reworked 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8.
