BMW M8 Gran Coupe Concept Looks Like a Proper M Flagship

In the words of Adrian van Hooydonk, the M8 Gran Coupe will be " the most exotic and alluring variant of the new BMW 8 Series".
BMW has officially confirmed that the i Vision Dynamicsconcept that was shown in Frankfurt previous year will become reality, and will be known as the BMW i4 when it enters into series production.
"The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is created to stir things up, to polarise - it should move you emotionally", explained Domagoj Dukec, Vice President Design BMW M and BMW i, in a release from the automaker. The concept not only previews the 8 Series Gran Coupe, but also gives a closer look at the styling that we can expect from the M8. The Geneva show vehicle still doesn't offer a lot of insight as to what might happen in the road-going version, but we gather that its carbonfibre roof panel, angry-looking LED light signatures and general swoopy shape will probably make it through to production. The front end is a more aggressive take on the 8 Series Concept due to the large air intakes in the sculpted front bumper, gold-colored kidney surround, and lighting technology familiar from the M8 GTE endurance racer.
The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe has been revealed at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and brings with it an insight into how the German brand's cars will look in the future. The series-produced coupe - and possibly a convertible - will arrive first, most likely this autumn, followed by the arrival of the four-door Gran Coupe sometime next year.
