Arrow BMW 8-series preview

The Mercedes CLS four door coupe is currently fighting a solo battle with no competition - but now is the time for Daimler to be looking over their shoulders. Preparation is well under way by their German competitors with the Audi A7, Volkswagen Passat Coupe, Porsche Panamera and now we bring you an artists interpretation of the BMW four door coupe which will probably be badged as the 8 series.

The All New BMW 8 series styling will be based on the CS concept with the platform to come from the 7 series or even possibly the 6 series.
The original 8 series was produced between 1989 and 1999 and was powered by a V8 and a V12 engine. We expect this trend to continue with the new model set to use the 438hp 6.0-liter V-12 engine from the 760i and 4.8-liter V8 from the 750i.

The entire segment makes no sense to me, a coupe by definition has 2 doors. It's just going to confuse buyers more.

coupe
A closed car with two side doors and less than 33 cubic feet of rear interior volume, according to measurements based on SAE standard J1100. A two-door car is therefore not necessarily a coupe.

Kidney grill and pretty much the whole car will be more like Concept CS with minor changes. Lehmann did a bad photochop.
