The new BMW 8 Series

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

As you will be aware, it looks exactly like the 2007 BMW Concept CS (pictures below), which was first showed off at the 2007 Shanghai Motor Show.
According to M division head honcho Ludwig Willisch, the car will not be an “M” car per se, but the design is such a departure from typical BMW designs that, for the first time in the division’s history, they’ve been tasked to build their first non-M-badged vehicle. Though specs not yet available, the new 8 Series’ main rivalries will be the Mercedes Benz CLS3 AMG, the yet-to-be-released Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide.
