BMW M8 Gran Coupe Concept

While not exactly originators of the niche, BMW has always had a knack at showcasing attractive and en vogue four-door coupes (unlike those disgusting fastbacks!) - and the performance-oriented Concept M8 Gran Coupe is certainly a stunner.

From the cold war of the German automotive industry, the BMW M8 Grand Coupe Concept is Munich's answer to the Porsche Panamera, and Mercedes-AMG's soon-to-be-revealed GT-based sedan.

The Concept M8 Gran Coupe shows off the latest BMW design elements, some of which might make production; the large coupe/sedan features a huge front fascia with exaggerated everything and a fastback profile leading to a duck-tail trunk lid.

The BMW M8 Gran Coupe wll be the crown jewel of BMW's 8-Series lineup.

"The 8-Series will be the next model in the expansion of our luxury-car offering and will raise the benchmark in the segment", Krueger says. The Geneva show auto still doesn't offer a lot of insight as to what might happen in the road-going version, but we gather that its carbonfibre roof panel, angry-looking LED light signatures and general swoopy shape will probably make it through to production. "The contours of the radiator grille kidneys broaden as they descend toward the road, emphasising the car's low center of gravity".

Speaking of M matters, the M8 family should borrow the M5's updated twin-turbo V8, which means we'll be enjoying at least 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of twist, with a performance-tuned eight-speed automatic also on the menu. The model will also go up against the Porsche Panamera.

The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is similar in idea to the M6 Gran Coupe in that it takes BMW's structure for a Coupe and extends it into something that is altogether more practical but still screams its performance credentials from the roof!
