"The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe offers a look ahead to the most exotic and alluring variant of the new BMW 8 Series". Shown in concept form at the Geneva Motor Show, this concept is living up to the letter: more of everything.
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 vehicle will use a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8, expected to produce around 600hp.
Those of us who hero-worshipped the original 8-Series were thrilled to bits when BMW announced its return with the concept shown at Goodwood Festival of Speed last summer, in the Stable Yard.
BMW has just unveiled the new M8 Concept Gran Coupe and the first videos of the powerful foor-door coupe are now available. From the front the radiator grille kidneys broaden as they descend towards the road, to emphasize the car's low center of gravity, while the gold-colored kidney surround adds an air of exclusivity to the front end. But among its many unique bold touches, the new concept receives more aggressive front air vents as well as yellow headlights featuring tech borrowed from the M8 GTE race auto.

"The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is created to stir things up, to polarise - it should move you emotionally", explains Domagoj Dukec, Vice President Design BMW M and BMW i. The model will also go up against the Porsche Panamera.
"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", said BMW VP, Adrian van Hooydonk.
