THE GREAT 8
BMW’s stunning Concept8 Series makes Asian debut.
The stunning BMW Concept8Series makes its South-East Asian debut.
BMW Malaysia recently thrilled luxury motoring enthusiasts by unveiling the BMW Luxury Excellence Pavilion in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Encased in the glass pavilion was a machine that drew every eye to its sleek, muscular body. This stunner was the BMW Concept 8 Series car that made its South-East Asian debut, giving visitors a taste of what’s to come with the 8 Series Coupé expected to be unveiled later this year.
From the offset, it’s clear that the Concept 8 Series is designed to be a mighty machine with a new take on the classic BMW design codes. The muscular body is refined with a large kidney grille, broadly spread across the front and hangs low to the road, while hexagonal slim twin headlights brazenly stare forward. Large side air intakes in the front apron add to the vehicle’s sporty stance. The back is no less impressive, with powerful wheel arches that hint at a rear-wheel drive and stretched-out rear lights fashioned into striking L-shaped blades.
On the inside, BMW Concept 8 Series is the epitome of luxury in Dark Brown and Fjord White Merino leather, and Swarovski glass iDrive Controller. However, the automobile’s sporty instinct is not forgotten, expressed through leather-finished sports seats crafted in carbon fibre shell, a high centre console and low visual focus on the instrument panel. Suffice to say, the BMW Concept 8 Series has got us geared up for what’s to come!
