An exemplary work of the company’s forward-thinking engineering and innovation, the BMW Concept 8 Series was introduced last year as a brand-new high-performance luxury sports car. Now, it’s nearing ever so close to becoming a consumer reality with the 8 Series entering production in the near future to blow away the competition. With its sleek new design, powerful performance, and innovative technology packed inside, the BMW Concept 8 Series is a dream waiting to come true.
While we await its official release, Edmonton BMW has created a comprehensive guide for everything you need to know about the Concept 8 Series. Read on to see some of the things you can expect about this upcoming coupe.
The Concept 8 Series combines the futuristic, sharp lines of newer experimental vehicles such as the BMW i8, while retaining the same hallmark design traits you’ve come to expect from classic BMW models. Its front and rear bumpers incorporate muscular, trapezoidal lines in the exhausts to give it an athletic aesthetic that accentuates its remarkable performance. Imagine the concept car for the i8 from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, but more with more refined colors and lines. Meanwhile, the inside of the vehicle is designed to put you right inside a luxurious performance sports car, with sleek carbon shells giving structure to the Concept 8 Series’ dashboard.
It’s been reported that the Concept 8 Series will offer two incredible choices for its engine: a 3.0L inline-six and a 4.4L TwinTurbo V8 engine with the possibility of pushing out 445 horsepower. There are also rumours that there will be a hybrid iteration of the Concept 8 Series as well, combining it with an electric drivetrain to help save emissions from the vehicle. Additionally, it’s worth noting that European models will also have the option of incorporating diesel engines, but there are no plans to release them in North America in the near future.
Release & Pricing
Expected to release later this year, the Concept 8 Series will come to the North American market as a 2019 model year. Pricing for the six-cylinder model is projected to close at nearly $100,000 while the V-8 model remains to be seen.
