BMW aims to revive the 8 Series, the nameplate of the brand’s maximum luxury coupe that ran from 1989 through 1999, with a gorgeous new concept carforecasting the eventual production model’s styling.
As a styling concept, this new 8 Series debuted with no technical details provided. But we can see that BMW takes seriously the challenge of reinterpreting the original car’s futuristic wedgy lines in a contemporary way.
“The design of the BMW Concept 8 Series provides a fresh interpretation of iconic BMW styling cues,” explained senior vice president for BMW Group design Adrian van Hooydonk. “And it also showcases a new approach to the use of forms which is reflected particularly prominently in the car’s surfacing.”
