BMW’s brand-new flagship coupé has been caught testing in Germany; which’s due to go on sale in 2020
The reborn BMW 8 Series coupé has been spotted testing, ahead of an expected launch in 2020.
BMW’s flagship product will be a two-door coupé product of the 7 Series saloon, in much the same way as the 4 Series and also also also 3 Series are related.
Sources close to the company say the 8 Series will rival the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé and also also also Bentley Continental GT when which’s launched in 2020, with pricing to compete with these, too.
True to BMW’s current line-up, the 8 Series will be offered with three Centeng styles: coupé, convertible and also also also four-door Gran Coupé.
The long-rumoured 8 Series will feature the same top-end technologies found within the 7 Series, including the latest and also also also next-generation semi-autonomous features.
Camouflage cladding covers much of the automobile, although which’s clear to see the considerable overall length of the product via the shots, as well as some styling features, including a widened product of the company’s signature kidney grilles.
Upswept headlights also feature at the front, and also also also trapezoidal exhaust tips sit below slimline rear lights, although these are heavily disguised and also also also are liable to change ahead of the automobile’s full reveal.
Being so closely related to the 7 Series, which’s likely which the 8 Series will share engines with its saloon sibling. which means which an iPerformance-badged plug-in hybrid will feature within the range, as well as the entry-level 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel found within the 7 Series and also also also a more performance-orientated 4.4-litre V8 via the 750i xDrive, accompanied by all-wheel drive. A V12-engined product will come later within the automobile’s life cycle.
The naming structure of the 8 Series will be likely to mirror which of the 7 Series after the first digit, so the 830d will be likely to kick off the range.
