With the all-new 8 Series, BMW revives a name it last used in the 1990s for a wedge-shaped luxury coupé. But the new 8 Series can also be considered a replacement for the more recent 6 Series as BMW’s flagship coupé. It’s built at the same Dingolfing plant as the 7 Series luxury saloon and benefits from the same high levels of technology, though in a more sporting package.

The new 8 Series is low, smooth and sleek, with a pronounced inward curve rearwards of the front wheel arch that then swells around the rear wheel arch to emphasise its muscularity. The rear is dominated by two trapezoidal exhausts and the designers of the 8 Series have used repeating horizontal lines across the back to accentuate the low, wide stance. At the front there’s a prominent front apron with large air intakes, a version of the BMW kidney-shaped grille that’s unique to this model and the slimmest headlamps of any BMW model to date. Inside, you’ll find a wide centre console, which rises up towards the instrument panel at the front, separating the driver and front passenger. New multifunctional sports seats in Extended Merino leather upholstery offer long-distance comfort with excellent lateral support during fast cornering.
