BMW cars are usually not very beautiful to look at. BMW loyalists, allow me to explain. Which car model form this German car-maker will you call as handsome or beautiful? BMW car models are known across the world for its driving dynamics, athletic design and purposeful stance. The crisp lines and flat body panels gives the BMW cars a masculinity no other German models can boast of.
In the future, however, BMW will also take care of the design part for its cars like never before. Fresh from the oven, the 8 Series concept hints at stunning looking BMWs. The design study is the precursor to the forthcoming new model -- BMW 8 Series Coupe -- slated for launch in 2018 and part of the biggest model offensive in the company's history.
The design of the 8 Series concept is a marriage of razor-sharp dynamics and modern luxury. It looks like what would have been the next generation of the 6 Series Coupe. The low-slung bonnet, road-hugging stance, chiselled flanks, sloping roofline and aggressive looking tail splitter makes the car unique and significantly stylish over other BMWs.
The face of the concept features a large kidney grille, slim twin laser headlights and large air intakes. The 21-inch light-alloy wheels, and flared wheel adds mass to the sides while L-shaped lights and the trapezoidal exhaust pipes are the highlights at the rear.
The sleek design theme has been carried inside the cabin, thanks to the leather-wrapped seats boasting a carbon fiber shell. Merino leather in Dark Brown and Fjord White lends the interior a high-quality ambience. The cabin also flaunts numerous hand-polished aluminium and carbon fiber accents, while the Swarovski glass on the iDrive controller tops off the premium treatment.
BMW has not yet revealed detailed specifications of the 8 Series. Reports indicate the flagship powerplant will be a twin-turbo 6.6-litre V12 engine. The M division's souped-up version of the 8 Series is expected to use twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine producing over 450bhp.
