New BMW 8 Series teased

New BMW 8 Series teased

We reported previous year that BMW doesn't have a direct replacement for today's 6er line, but the 6-Series nameplate isn't yet ready to die.

The company BMW has confirmed the new coupe 8-Series. Unlike its predecessor, the new vehicle displays an eagerness to be driven hard and fast. "I can tell you today that this will be a true luxury sports coupe".

The 8-Series will replace BMW's 6-Series which is already no longer available as a coupe.

The platform for the 8-Series is BMW's carbon fiber-infused CLAR design that debuted in the 2016 7-Series.

At this month's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, BMW will unveil a concept version of the upcoming 8 Series.

Inside, the 2 Series sports a dashboard that has been lightly revised, with "a more spacious, calmer and clearer feel" as a result. The 225d and M240i xDrive variants of both the Coupe and Convertible link up as standard with the eight-speed Steptronic Sport version of the automatic, which offers a steering wheel-mounted manual shift function. That leaves the 7's twin-turbo inline-six, twin-turbo V-8, and likely the M760i's twin-turbo V-12 as solid choices-and it would preserve our right to declare the future 8-series all ate up with motor. In addition, the specific exterior of the BMW 3 Series Edition Sport Line Shadow comprises 18-inch light alloys in a double spoke design boasting the exclusive colour Jet Black.

Add the BMW 6 Series Coupe to the list of two-door cars that have had their life support unceremoniously yanked out. In the USA, the 2 Series is available as the 230i with a turbocharged inline-four making 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque and a M240i that turns out 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.

BMW still has three body styles in the 6 Series family: Convertible, Grand Coupe and Alpina B6.
