PostHeaderIcon BMW Mulling Over a 9 Series Maybach Fighter

Just when it seemed like BMW had finally stretched itself into the luxury segment with the 8 Series, a new report suggests that the German automaker wants to go deeper into the luxury realm with — wait for it — a 9 Series model. Granted, nothing is set in stone at the moment, but Adrian van Hooydonk, BMW’s design director, hinted to Autocar that the 8 Series isn’t the end of the German automaker’s voyage into the world of luxury models.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

Having revived the 8 Series after two decades, BMW is also planning to build a Gran Coupe version of the two-door. A concept car was shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, where it was confirmed that the 8 Series Gran Coupe “will take over as the new flagship model” for the brand. Come July 2018, and the production model was spotted on the road.

Much like the coupe, the production car will share many features with the concept. However, this test vehicle has a milder appearance, as it appears to be a standard model and not the M version we saw in Geneva. Our paparazzi actually spotted two cars. There’s a regular 8 Series on a trailer and a sportier version with the M Sport package stretching its wheels on the road. The final product could break cover by the end of 2018 and join a niche that already includes the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Audi A7.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the BMW M8 Tear Ass Around the Nurburgring

Like a shot of the good juice on a clear morning, the BMW M8 was spotted at the Nurburgring doing some good ‘ol fashion testing. The long-bodied beauty was dressed in heavy camouflage, but the coupe’s unmistakable look can still be gleaned underneath all that wrapping.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 8 Series Convertible

After nearly two decades on the shelf, the BMW 8 Series is back, and it’s once again looking to head the BMW lineup with sporty grand touring luxury as a replacement for the outgoing 6 Series. Revived in both racing and full production form at the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Bavarians are kicking things off with a hardtop coupe iteration, but this new flagship is sure to receive a fresh drop-top version sooner or later, making for the first-ever convertible 8 Series model.

We can’t wait to get our eyeballs on it, but luckily, we don’t have to, as the fine folks at X-Tomi Design put together a rendering of just such a creation. Read on for our full speculative review on what the upcoming Bimmer will bring to the party.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW 8 Series Configurator – How We’d Spec It

The highly anticipated debut of the 2019 BMW 8 Series finally happened this week, and as has been the case recently, the luxury sedan’s online configurator quickly followed. Online configurators have been fun exercises for us. We get to create our own version of the new model and spec it right down to the most specific of details. Far too often, our creations end up differing from another, but that’s precisely the purpose of these configurators. You create what you want regardless of the opinions of other people. In the end, you live by your creation, and you show it off to the rest of the world. And so it is, our spec of the 2019 BMW 8 Series.

PostHeaderIcon Evolution of an Icon – 1999 BMW 8 Series vs 2019 BMW 8 Series

The arrival of the 2019 BMW 8 Series was a long time in the making. It’s been almost 20 years since an 8 Series hit the streets, and the arrival of the new model has brought our memories of the original version back on the surface. In times like this, we can’t help but wonder how the 8 Series measures up to the original. Does it look better? Does it have better materials? Which came with better technologies? We pieced through all that to find a clearer picture of how the new 8 Series compares to its iconic OG.

PostHeaderIcon The BMW 8 Series is Out, but What do we Know About the BMW M8?

Harvey Samuel Firestone is not a guy you would usually tie with BMW, let alone the newest BMW M850i. He founded the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company back in 1900 and paved the way for a well-known marketing idea called – “Win On Sunday, Sell On Monday!”

Muscle car producers (and not only them) used this strategy to their advantage back in the day of really cheap gas. Good old times. It seems that BMW is attempting to implement the same strategy this year with their 8 Series.

BMW unveiled the new 8 Series at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and placed it directly next to their fantastic M8 GTE racer. The model in question was the top spec M850i xDrive Coupe M Performance in orange. BMW Motorsport CEO Franciscus Van Meel and BMW designer Adrian Van Hooydonk talked endlessly to the press there explaining all the bits and pieces.

And it happened! Van Meel said:

“This car (pointing at the M8 GTE) is going to race today, and that car (pointing at the M850i) you can buy later on this year.”

So, yes, BMW M boss is actually telling you to buy the M850i which is such a sports performance machine it felt only natural to reveal it next to its sister, the race-bred M8 GTE. Some questions lingered after seeing the footage. What, for the love of all that is sacred, will the M8 bring? What will it turn into?

Maybe a monster. Maybe an undisputed BMW that the fantastic original 850CSi from the Nineties simply couldn’t have been.

This is a story about the forthcoming BMW M8.

PostHeaderIcon Xtomi Renders the 8 Series as a Cabrio, Pickup, Shooting Brake, and NFS Most Wanted Street Racer

The arrival — or is it return? — of the BMW 8 Series has done a lot of things in the industry, including giving designers an opportunity to render the German automaker’s new flagship model sporting different body types. It’s no surprise that as soon as the 8 Series was unveiled, noted artist and rendering maestro X-Tomi has come out with different “versions” of the 8er, some of which are more audacious than others.

Does the 8 Series work as a shooting brake? How about a convertible version? Maybe even as a pickup? X-Tomi covered all these bases with his renders for the 8 Series, and almost all of them are awesome.

We’re finally getting a look at the BMW 8 Series in high resolution and ready to take on the Mercedes S-Class in a Serious way. It’s expected to hit the road in the U.K. in November with a price ranging from £76,740 to as much as £100,025 for the range-topping (until the M8, anyway) M850i seen in all of the images we have here. Pricing for the U.S. has yet to be released.

A test driver from BMW took his girlfriend’s mother for a spin in a BMW 8 Series prototype, but things took a turn for the worst when he lost control and hit several trees, causing severe damage to the car and fatal injuries to the passenger. The crash happened around 10pm Sunday night and is still under investigation, but the cause of the accident is said to be “significantly excessive speed.”

PostHeaderIcon BMW Will Debut the Production Version of the 8 Series Coupe at the 24 Hours of Le Mans

While Bimmer fans have been eating up the new 8 Series in its be-winged and racing livery form with the M8 GTE, the full production model has yet to make its official debut. But that’ll change next month when BMW brings a brand-new M850i xDrive Coupe to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as teased in the above-featured picture.

PostHeaderIcon Confirmation of the BMW M850i has Come with the Promise of 523 Horsepower

Following months of rumors and teasers, BMW finally revealed some details about the upcoming 8 Series. While the M8 remains a mystery, now we know a bit more about the M850i versions, which promises to deliver in excess of 500 horsepower.

PostHeaderIcon Mark Those Calendars: The BMW 8 Series to Debut on June 15

After seeing theBMW 8 Series Concept, the BMW 8 Series GTE racer, and who knows how many spy shots and teasers, it looks like we’ll finally get to see the road-going 8 Series make its long-awaited debut. In a memo sent out to BMW sales reps, it was said that the new 8 Series will make its debut on June 15, 2018, at the 24 Hours of Le Mans – just prior to the 8 Series GTE taking to the track for the very first time.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M8 Gran Coupe

The iconic BMW 8 Series is making a comeback, and this is no longer a rumor. The return of BMW’s biggest coupe yet was confirmed in 2017 when the German automaker introduced a concept car and a GTE-spec race car. What’s more, BMW also confirmed that the new 8 Series will get an M8 version for the very first time. Come 2018 and BMW announced plans to expand the 8 Series family with yet another model. And it’s not the highly anticipated convertible, but a four-door coupe variant. Yes, the 8 Series is getting the Gran Coupe treatment and more importantly, it will come in M8 specs too. A concept version of the M8 model was unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, and BMW confirmed that it will become a production model by the end of 2018.

With the 6 Series Gran Coupe still available, the 8 Series Gran Coupe may seem a bit redundant at first glance. But given that the 6 Series is no longer available in coupe form, the Gran Coupe model could be discontinued too, which would leave the 8 Series Gran Coupe as BMW’s main competitor for the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7. The M8 Gran Coupe would make things that much more interesting, as BMW will have a rival for the AMG and RS versions of the CLS and A7, respectively. The concept car provides a few valuable hints as to what to expect from the production model, but technical specifications are still a mystery. Until more data becomes available, let’s have a closer look at what we already know about the upcoming M8 Gran Coupe.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Showed off the 8 Series in Secret and Reports Say It’s about 90-Percent Identical to the Concept

The next few years are going to be huge for BMW and, outside of the new Z4 Roadster hitting the streets, all eyes are set on the BMW 8 Series. After being let down that it wasn’t shown off in Geneva this year, you might be surprised to know that it was, in fact, in Geneva – it was just hidden away from all of us, in a secret room, where only the cool people were allowed to go check it out. Certain sources, whom of which were allegedly in the cool people room, have told BMW Blog that the production version of the 8 series is about 90-percent of the concept.

What Does the Production BMW? 8 Series Look Like?


BMW Showed off the 8 Series in Secret and Reports Say It's about 90-Percent Identical to the Concept - image 732701
“The front end is a little toned down in comparison to the concept, but it has the same general look”

To be a little more specific, the front end is, apparently, 100-percent the same. It’s a little toned down in comparison to the concept, but it has the same general look. It is said to have the same grille and, as we’ve seen on test mules, very thin headlights. The rear end is said to be similar, but the taillights have changed a bit, with that “source” claiming they were a mix between the concept and the X4. Finally, it was said that the screen inside (we’re not sure if that’s the infotainment of instrument cluster, however,) is “very big for a BMW.”

With that in mind, this is really good news as the concept itself was beautiful and largely different from the rest of the lineup. The mention of a large screen inside signifies that BMW is starting to really embrace its technology side and this high-end technology will eventually trickle down to other models like the M2, M3, and M4, among others. One thought is that BMW has followed Mercedes’ lead with the twin screens up front, however, it could have made it one large screen instead of two mated seamlessly together. Now, that would be something to see, don’t you think?

For now, there’s still no word as to when BMW will actually debut the 8 series. However, if they’ve started showing it off to VIPs, its debut isn’t long off. It’s not likely to make its way to the New York Auto Show, so you can assume that BMW will probably do their own standalone event, mimicking a move that other automakers have made in the past couple of years.
