2018 BMW M8 – KEEP on your Lederhosen and here’s what could be the sexy curves of the BMW M8.
Full Disclosure, this is not an official rendering. It Is the work of the Guru Com-gen resident of Wheels Brendan Wise, who mocked a lot of predictions of production cars and come frightfully close more than a few times.
We put it to work on the BMW M8-coated Camo prototype that was revealed at the Nurburgring 24 hour last month, and that’s what it served back.
With The concept of series 8 as inspiration, Wise was able to detach the camouflage and bring to life a realistic prediction of what the new Halo Super-Coupe of BMW will look like.
The M8 will be the icing on top of the already distinctive design of the series 8. As a base, the delightful curves of the 8 Concept series offer BMW designers a lot of work, and Wheels understands that the family will include the Coupe, the four-door Coupe and the cabriolet body styles, just like the current range of 6 series.
Unfortunately, this time the flagship model will not be rocking an iconic 12-cylinder engine.
Despite the 2018 bmw m8 gran coupe project Born in the Nineties with a Bent-12 orchestral under its Wedge-shaped muzzle, the modern iteration will be attached to a proven eight-cylinder twin-engine recipe, which will probably be torn from under the hood of the next new Generation M5.
The prototype M8 was shot, in crowds, and generally cries out to anyone approaching his Maw snarling while he is on display in Germany.
Although not as operatic as a V12 Atmo, it certainly sounds like the M8 will have the bark to match its hopefully substantial on-track bite.
Before It appears on the road, the M8 will debut at the Daytona International Speedway early next January in GTE racing car spec. The engine for racing is probably the same 4.4-liter Twin-Turbo V8 that feeds the M6 GT3 runner.
BMW Concept M8 debuts in Geneva
The New 2018 bmw m8 specs has not yet come out, but the automaker used the auto salon in Geneva to take the wrap off a four-door concept sedan that is calling the “BMW Concept M8 Grand Coupe.” “It is better to think of this concept as a preview of an inevitable fou R-door series 8. Following The guide of the series 6 of Gran Coupe (which is actually very beautiful), this concept is very similar to a series 7.
The BMW Concept M8 Grand Coupe takes the trend four-door coupe and applies it to a large car, ahead of the beginnings of production versions of the series 8 Coupe and convertible later this summer and fall. This Concept anticipates a later four-port version of the platform due in 2019.
“BMW Series 8 will take the form of the new BMW-line flagship model and, as such, combines sportsmanship and unsurmountable elegance,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President, BMW Group Design. “The BMW M8 Gran Coupe offers a glimpse into the most exotic and seductive variant of the new BMW 8 series. ”
The concept 2018 bmw m8 for sale Shows The latest elements of BMW design, some of which could make the production; The large coupé/sedan features a large front fascia with all overdone and a Fastback profile that leads to a lid of the duck tail trunk.
“The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is designed to mix things, to polarize-it should move emotionally,” said Domagoj Dukec, Vice President of Design BMW M and BMW i. “With this car we want to reach people who are looking for something special and who want to stand out from the crowd. Here, BMW M is unequivocally taking luxury from its comfort zone. ”
The long step of the concept is almost diminished by the great features of the front fascia, destined to convey a sense of performance, with the elegant line of the greenhouse skipping the flat roof of the series 7. The result is a visually small cabin positioned far behind the front axle and a Coupe-like profile.
The details of the surface on the bonnet and on the doors also reinforce the flavour of the performance of the concept, wearing a paint Saleve Vert finish that seems to pass from greyish blue to green in different lighting conditions.
“The face of the new BMW 8 series is evident in the front-end graphics of the new concept,” says BMW. “The contours of the kidneys of the radiator grille widen as they descend towards the road, emphasizing the low center of gravity of the automobile. As in the early bmw m8 prototype 2018, the kidney elements are connected by an uninterrupted surround grid, creating a large single element. The headlights are positioned slightly higher than the kidneys and give them the impression of sitting lower, which further emphasizes the proximity of the car to the asphalt. On the contrary, the surround of the golden kidneys brings an additional air of exclusivity to the front end. Inside the headlights, the family lighting technology of the Endurance racer M8 GTE provides a dynamic and hexagonal interpretation of the four-eyed BMW front, which will distal elements of modern motorsports and luxurious quality in its Inside Details. Meanwhile, the muscular air intakes made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) drive the air where it is required. ”
bmw m8 2018 wallpaper We’Ll see the 8-Series Coupe and convertible later this year, but it will take a little longer for a production version of the Great Coupe’s 8 series to materialize. BMW’s quest for this unlikely segment, at a time when Big SUV’s are on the way back, may have more to do with Mercedes ‘ success in this price range – BMW lacks competitors at the S-class Coupe and Convertible, or at least will for a couple of months.
BMW M8 Price
2018 bmw m8 price It’s a bit early to talk about pricing here, but it’s pretty clear that the M8 won’t come cheap. My initial thought was that the M8 will fetch more than M760i xDrive, which starts from $156,700, but with BMW having announced that the M850i will start from $111,900, the coupe-up-up could be less expensive. My best guess is that the Germans will ask about $135,000 for the gamma-topping model.
