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!
