The generously curved and muscular surfaces give the BMW
8 Series Coupé a particularly conident sportiness. The BMW
designers have succeeded in reducing the number of lines
along the bodywork to a radical minimum, thus emphasising
the expressiveness of the surfaces to the maximum – the basis
for a completely new silhouette in contemporary automotive
design. Many surfaces, such as the gently raised lanks behind
the air vents of the front wheel arches, have hitherto been
unseen in such an expressive form in automotive design.
IN THE FORM
TO BE SPORTY.
The BMW 8 Series Coupé establishes a completely
new design language for luxury sports cars – an
overview of the most important design innovations.
The new BMW 8 Series Coupé is also irresistibly luxurious in
the interior – and at the same time inimitably sporty: Noble
materials and elaborate workmanship create a maximally
exclusive ambience. At the same time, however, the design of
the new BMW 8 Series Coupé is thoroughly dynamic in keeping
with its character: The intentional longitudinal orientation of the
interior allows all lines to thrust forward, and the BMW typical,
consistent driver orientation helps to keep the driver in control
of everything at all times. Get in and experience the feeling of
the racetrack, elegantly interpreted.
Just right for a BMW sports car of the highest performance
class: the sporty-powerful proportions. Deep, wide and ready
to leap, the lat body ducks over the asphalt. Voluminous rear
wheel arches emphasise a low centre of gravity and the classic
rear-wheel drive. The lowing silhouette in conjunction with the
gently curved surfaces thus signal an effortless and natural
urge to move forward.

The BMW designers interpreted well-known BMW design
elements such as the BMW kidney grille, the rear lights in the
shape of an L or the typical kink in the graphics of the rear
windows in a highly modern way. For example, the forward
leaning BMW kidney grille in the shape of a shark nose refers
to iconic BMW racing cars such as the BMW 507 or BMW 3.0
CSL. The particularly delicate and wide rear lights featured in
the BMW 8 Series Coupé emphasise the powerful shoulders
as well as the powerful rear end.

Other subtle details such as the minimalist and loating light
side mirrors or the double-arched roof in the style of classic
racing cars complete the harmonious overall impression of the
BMW 8 Series Coupé, which, despite its restrained form and
unobtrusive luxury, awakens the viewer’s emotionalism typical
of a BMW sports car.
In the BMW 8 Series Coupé, all the lines point forward
from the driver’s point of view and manifest the feeling of
unrestrained forward thrust. Typically for a sports car, the
centre console is wide and steeply rising. Here, all relevant
functions are clearly summarised, so that the driver enjoys
full control in every driving situation. In addition, the clearly
structured layout creates space for the luxurious effect of
the high-quality materials and spacious surfaces.
IRRESISTIBLY LUXURIOUS –
AND INIMITABLY SPORTY
AT THE SAME TIME.
TWO WORLDS, NO COMPROMISES:
THE NEW BMW 8 SERIES COUPÉ COMBINES
SPORTINESS WITH ABSOLUTE LUXURY.
From classic-sporty to modern-elegant: Even the interior
has a unique luxurious atmosphere. Starting with the basic
equipment, the instrument panel and door panel are covered
in leather and provided with contrast stitching. Seats in leather,
BMW Individual leather ‘Merino’ with extended contents
emphasise the individual claim of the interior. Design elements
such as the lowing transitions between the instrument panel
and the doors create an all-round exclusive design experience
that equally surrounds drivers and passengers on all sides.
The hand-crafted glass applications are an experience for
the hands and the eyes: They set high-quality highlights on
selected control elements such as the gear selector, the
Start-Stop button, the iDrive Controller or the volume control,
which further add to the already noble ambience.
SPARKLING EXCLUSIVITY: THE GLASS APPLICATIONS
‘CRAFTED CLARITY’ ARE MANUFACTURED BY HAND AND EMBELLISH SELECTED ELEMENTS IN THE INTERIOR.
