BMW 8-Series: From Dream To Reality! We Hope To Have More Than Spy Pics in 2017!
|   Tuesday, September 27, 2016
The new BMW 8 Series finally appeared in spy photos published on the website motor1.com, and from what we’ve seen, we can say that its potential is huge.
The fact that the Bavarians are working on the new BMW 8 Series is not exactly a secret, especially since more and more speculation has appeared lately regarding the top of the range to reinterpret one of the most popular models in the brand's history.

If the latest news about the new BMW 8 Series confirms that the car has already received its code name G14 / G15, we now have the first spy photos.

The American website Motor1.com recently published a series of spy shots of the new BMW 8 Series caught inside a testing center. Looking at the pictures, we can realize the classic coupé line with a long arched ceiling toward the back.
While it is entirely camouflaged and we cannot distinguish the details of the design, the new BMW 8 Series already looks like a serious rival for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, but also for the future Audi A9.

If we take into account the fact that BMW has recorded several names, including 850, 860, M850 and M8, it's pretty clear that the future coupe will have V8, V12 engines, and probably a by the book M model. The V12 power unit will be borrowed from the freshly presented BMW M760Li xDrive, while the M8 site could try a hybrid approach that combines a gasoline engine with one or two electric ones, with a similar operation mode to that of BMW i8.
MotorAuthority.com claims the platform of the future BMW 8 Series will be the same as the new BMW 7 Series, while production will take place at the BMW plant in Dingolfing, starting with 2019.

It seems that the new BMW 8 Series will be available in two body styles - coupe and cabriolet - and that the current BMW 6 Series will be repositioned in order to fight against models like the Porsche 911, Mercedes-AMG GT or Jaguar F-Type.
Another body version that could get its way into the new BMW 8 Series range is the "Gran Coupe".
