New BMW M8 Gran Coupe Previewed by Geneva Concept with Stunning Looks

Spied Up close with the BMW M8 Coupe image

It's best to think of this concept as a preview to an inevitable four-door 8-Series.

This auto, moreover, represents "a new facet of luxury: extremely sporty, extravagant and polarizing", according to chief designer Adrian van Hooydonk. "It will demonstrate that sharp dynamics and modern luxury go hand-in-hand, in a process strengthening our claim to leadership in the class".

Expect to see design cues from this concept incorporated into the 8 Series Gran Coupe and M8 Gran Coupe which will be revealed in 2019.

BMW makes no mention of the engine, but thanks to the GTE's seventh-in-class run at January's Daytona 24, we know that the production auto will use a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8, expected to produce around 600hp.

THE BMW 8 SERIES will take over as the new flagship vehicle in the line-up with the Concept M8 Gran Coupe billed as "a new facet of luxury for the BMW brand - ultra-sporty, extrovert and polarising".

The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is more than simply a luxury sports auto with four doors.

The long wheelbase of the concept is nearly dwarfed by the large features of the front fascia, meant to communicate a sense of performance, with the sleek line of the greenhouse skipping the flat plane roof of the 7-Series.

Though this isn't how the standard BMW M8 will look when it hits the road there are hints that the Gran Coupe will in fact become a reality, even in M8 guise. Also included is an aggressive-looking bumper and quad exhaust-pipe treatment to be adopted by the performance-oriented M8 version of the new 4-door model.

Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group Design said: "The BMW 8 Series will be the new leader in the BMW range, combining the highest levels of sportiness and elegance".

"With this auto we want to reach people who are looking for something special and who want to stand out from the crowd".
