Not only have our spies caught the new BMW 8 Series Coupe, they also caught also a drop-top variant out for a spin on the streets of Munich, Germany.
The 8 Series is prepping for its official world premiere, which could come as early as this summer.
BMW’s 8 Series official reveal date could be on June 15 at Le Mans, France ahead of the big race.
The date was leaked in a recent sales bulletin sent to dealers that was posted by a forum member on bimmerpost.com.
These prototypes shed some camouflage, giving us a closer look at deeper and sportier looking front and rear bumpers, U-shaped LED headlights, and a blacked-out shark nose grille.
Around back, the narrow taillights stretch across its wide and shapely rump. They also feature rectangular twin exhaust tips instead of the triangular ones we saw on the 8 Series Coupe Concept that BMW unveiled last May.
BMW’s big two-door cabrio sports a snug black cloth top and a rather small glass rear window. Both cars are likely packing BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engines or testing a 3.0-liter inline-six with some form of mild hybrid add on.
The coupe has a black hood and is rolling on 21-inch blacked out version of the wheels similar to the 8 Series Concept we saw in Italy last year.
Its convertible brethren sports a white hood and has five-star rims with chrome highlights and both cars feature M Sport package brakes with blue calipers peeking through.
We also get a peek inside the coupe’s interior at the steering wheel, electronic dash, and iDrive shifter and touch controller. The rest is cabin is well-cloaked and hidden from view—for now.
