We all know the BMW 8-Series is real and on its way, but we have yet to see a production version without camouflage. Today, at the Geneva International Motor Show, BMW did one better and not only revealed the stunning emerald green M8 Gran Coupe Concept is a design study that “previews the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and BMW M8 Gran Coupe.” Why they don’t just show the actual M8 Gran Coupe, is beyond me, but if it looks anything like the show car, I don’t care.
Another promising prospect is “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. Which you can roughly translate that to BMW will start to trickle down design cues and elements to the rest of its lineup.
Frustratingly, since all the M8 Gran Coupe Concept is, is a design study, BMW didn’t offer any technical details. But we won’t have to wait much longer because BMW says the M8 “will be presented during the course of 2019 and round off the BMW 8 Series family.”
