The attraction of concept vehicles is that they show us what we can hope for in vehicles. Some represent the mere idea of an automobile that may or may not become available at car dealerships. Others are previews of actual vehicles that are on the way. To our delight, the BMW Concept 8 Series is just an advanced taste of what the real BMW 8 Series will be like. Learn more about this attractive new concept, and the 2018 BMW 8 Series release date, below.
2018 BMW 8 Series Release Date
While the BMW Concept 8 Series has already been released, the true BMW 8 Series will not be available until 2018. The elite performance-optimized BMW M8 is predicted to have its racing launch in January 2018.
“The forthcoming BMW 8 Series Coupe will demonstrate that razor-sharp dynamics and modern luxury can go hand-in-hand. This will be the next model in the expansion of our luxury-car offering and will raise the benchmark for coupes in the segment,” said Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, in a recent press release.
Styling Choices on the BMW Concept 8 Series
The new BMW Concept 8 Series is an elegant coupe with sleek lines. It features crisp lines, a bold profile, and a stunning interior loaded with infotainment and comfort features. Some highlights include:
- Exclusively developed Barcelona Grey Liquid exterior color
- Large kidney grille (which looks somewhat like the teeth on a shark)
- Super-slim laser headlights and stretched-out rear headlights
- Large side air intakes emphasizing the wide stance of the 8 Series
- Dark brown and Fjord White Merino leather interior
- Carbon fiber and hand-polished aluminum interior accents
The 2018 BMW 8 Series represents an elite, full-size two-door coupe that will be the flagship coupe of the BMW lineup. Like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class represents the most elite features and design among sedans in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the BMW 8 Series will be loaded with the latest features and bold new style.
