Pulse-racing, made-to-measure. The new BMW 8 Series Coupé unites the character of a sports car with the spirit of the BMW luxury class – creating a whole new standard of aesthetics.
The BMW 8 Series Coupé introduces a whole new age of BMW design that is immediately recognisable, particularly due to its narrow headlights. The sporty exterior is characterised by an unusual interaction of sharply drawn lines that extend across the entire side of the vehicle and emphasise the concave surfaces and muscular shoulder areas. In combination with the flat roof line, the result is an especially sharp coupé form that sets totally new standards.
In laser high-beam mode, BMW Laserlight illuminates a range of up to 600 m, nearly twice as far as that of conventional headlights. Better visibility in the dark significantly increases safety. Blue accents and the lettering "BMW Laserlight" in the headlight also underline the technological standards and the sportiness of the vehicle.
The sports car of the luxury segment – the modern, puristic interior of the new BMW 8 Series Coupé proves that contrasts can complement each other perfectly. High-quality materials, innovative technologies and numerous colour and equipment variations ensure a luxurious atmosphere and a high-quality appearance despite the distinctive sports car character. Both the elegant operating elements and the clear design lines head only in one direction: straight forward. This underscores the maximised orientation on the driver and lends the interior added dynamics. The perfect conditions for pure driving pleasure.
Something to everyone’s taste. The BMW Individual leather fittings using the finest Merino leather refine the interior and imbue it with a unique flair. You have a choice of several exclusive colour variations from black and cognac to ivory white. And with the attractive contrasts of the new bicolour upholstery, there is something for every racer – and every gentleman.
More irresistible with every detail: The elegant “CraftedClarity” glass application gives the sporty interior an exquisite appearance thanks to the straight-line cut and the blue colour tone. It embellishes the insert of the gear selector, as well as the central control element, the audio control button and the start/stop button. The result is an interplay of sporty flair and exclusive design that combines athleticism and grace like never before.
Dynamism in every detail: the BMW 8 Series Coupé combines top performance and high quality under a carbon roof that highlights the car’s special racing character. The M carbon exterior package* gives the M sports package additional dynamic highlights, such as visually-sharpened lines of the diffuser and the tailpipe trims framed with a carbon decorative element. The overall look – with a real carbon rear spoiler, air intake covers and mirror caps – moves you even when it’s standing still. *The M Carbon Exterior package is optional, and is available as a Special Order.
Impressive down to the last thread. While outstanding paint finishes bring out the appearance of the BMW 8 Series Coupé, luxurious materials with stylish contrast stitchings and classy decorative elements enhance the sporty interior – imbuing it with a particularly high-quality look. Combining top performance with the highest quality and creating an extremely sporty and elegant ambience in the interior.
