The 2017 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este has seen the unveiling of the BMW Concept 8 Series. The concept car serves as a taster of a forthcoming BMW model – the new BMW 8 Series Coupé – planned for launch in 2018. The BMW 8 Series Coupé will build on BMW's successful tradition of luxurious sports cars and adds another exciting model to its luxury-class line-up.
The exterior of the BMW Concept 8 Series brings together the past and the future of BMW. Its silhouette spreads low and powerfully over the road, while the long bonnet and flowing roofline bring dynamic allure to its flanks. Adding yet another sporty flourish is the striking upward sweep of the concept's trailing edge which provides a crisp conclusion to the car's rearward flow.
The exclusive Barcelona Grey Liquid paint finish – a greyish-blue with highly iridescent pigments – shows off the vehicle's surface. Exclusive 21-inch light-alloy wheels feature a sporty multi-spoke design, generate visual depth and highlight the compelling appearance of the car.
The BMW 8 series Coupe is due for launch in 2018.
