The eagerly anticipated BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is simply the pinnacle of creative excellence. The letter ‘M’ denotes ‘more’, more of everything, and the BMW M8 Concept illustrates this ostentatiously. The 2019 BMW M8 embodies an unparalleled symbiosis of elegance and athleticism and stylishly exposes a new facet of progressive luxury for BMW.
The motorsport DNA of BMW M and the flamboyance of the BMW 8 Series are elaborately fused together to produce this powerful and polarising machine. The 2019 BMW M8 Gran Coupe’s development journey to series production will lead it straight from the racing circuit to the road.
BMW M8 Concept en route to series production
The Concept BMW M8 Gran Coupe is instantly hypnotic, boasting a dramatically accentuated bonnet, massive air intakes, muscular haunches, an aerodynamic roof line and a powerfully imposing rear. In other words, the 2019 BMW M8 is majestic from every single angle. Adding to this is the exclusive and emotionally compelling paint finish in Salève Vert, which appears to change in colour and is suggestive of the Northern Lights.
Better yet, for an enhanced visual appeal, the characteristic M design elements such as the frame of the M double-bar kidney grille, the M gills, the M brake callipers and the M twin tailpipes are finished in an ornate matt gold. For a more overpowering presence, the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe comes with attention-grabbing 21-inch M light-alloy wheels with star-shaped double spokes featuring an exotic two-tone gold and black finish. Thus, the exterior of the BMW M8 Concept alone cleverly parades the Gran Coupe’s unprecedented performance capabilities, impeccable craftmanship and most of all, its sheer extravagance.
The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is set to be powered by a sophisticated V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. The high-revving unit develops maximum output of more than 440 kW/600 hp, which it transfers to the road in conjunction with the new M xDrive all-wheel-drive system – tuned specifically for the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe. Better yet, a flap-controlled exhaust system lends extra voice to the V8’s highly boisterous sound output. Nevertheless, the mechanical package, powertrain, chassis technology, exterior and interior styling of the 2019 BMW M8 is still in the final phase of development for series production.
The new BMW M8 Gran Coupe is scheduled to arrive at BMW Aberdeen and Tayside in the course of 2019. For more information about the BMW M8 price and release date contact John Clark Motor Group by phone, email or online today.
