The BMW 8-Se­ries Con­cept, which BMW de­scribes as a taster to the up­com­ing new model, shines light on what will be­come a next gen­er­a­tion coupé. Car­ry­ing over from its pro­gen­i­tor, the new coupé is strik­ingly el­e­gant like the Se­ries 6, but new pro­por­tions push the model to­wards a sleeker, sportier de­sign, fea­tur­ing broad­ened shoul­ders, a su­per-sized grille and low hood, as well as 21-inch al­loy wheels. Sig­na­ture BMW el­e­ments have also been rein­ter­preted, in­clud­ing the iconic kid­ney grille and the hinged boot. Com­plet­ing the look is a lux­u­ri­ous coat of Barcelona Grey liq­uid, cre­ated ex­clu­sively for the Con­cept model.

Un­like the usual BMW in­te­rior, the cabin of the Con­cept boasts an at­trac­tively clean new look. From the 2+2 seat to the un­clut­tered cen­tre con­sole lay­out with its large in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, BMW has ap­proached an over­all sim­ple style. Thin sports seats and twotone leather cabin lin­ing add to the Con­cept model's sporty char­ac­ter.

While there is plenty of in­sight into what to ex­pect in the up­com­ing re­lease, spe­cific de­tails of the 8 se­ries per­for­mance data have not been re­vealed, though it is ru­moured that the pro­duc­tion model will share a sim­i­lar driv­e­train to BMW’S tur­bocharged 3.0-litre I-6 and 4.4-litre v-8 en­gines. The com­pany also has plans to trade­mark var­ied mix of mod­els within the 8 Se­ries range; in­clud­ing 825, 830, 835, 845 and 850.

At the same time, BMW has reg­is­tered an ex­cit­ing new M8, a top tier per­form­ing model that will ri­val the Mercedes-amg GT and Porsche 911, and will likely in­clude a con­vert­ible model.

這台概念車延續了不少來自Gran Lusso Coupé概念車的設計理念,並保留了如雙腎型進氣格柵和後車窗上霍式彎角(Hofmeiser-knick)這些堪稱寶馬車系中歷代來延綿不斷的經典元素。同時,該車也有不少獨特之處。

首先,進氣格柵已連為一體,並且造型也更加立體,豎條幅格柵進化成了類似字母Y的形狀。另外,車前的大燈使用LED光源勾勒出極具未來感的前瞻性。尾部翹起的擾流板設計、誇張的LED光帶式尾燈組以及雙邊矩形排氣設計、21英吋雙五輻輪圈等,十足的跑車範兒。

如果說,8系在外觀上的變化,是在現有車款有跡可循後的「升級」,那內飾則可稱得上是一種「進化」。

寶馬8系在許多人心中只聞其名,沒見過其形的車款。在八、九十年代,它曾是馬力最大的量產車之一,但因其銷量不佳而停產,令人歎息。今年,寶馬重推8系概念車,係大型雙門GT跑車,定位遠超越於現有的6系。通過該車,車迷們可以一窺寶馬未來在豪華轎車領域的發展方向。 nd
