BMW has released a teaser image of the 8 Series Gran Coupe Concept ahead of the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Rumors surfaced last week that BMW was preparing an 8 Series Gran Coupe Concept for Geneva, and it appears we now have proof. BMW’s official Twitter account today posted a render of the new concept car’s side profile, revealing its svelte bodywork and elongated hood. With large wheels and a ducktail-style spoiler, it also seems possible that the concept is actually an M8 Gran Coupe and not just a standard 8 Series. Interestingly, it appears to have four doors.

Stay tuned.
More to come in Geneva next week.

The BMW M8 is already racing in the IMSA WeatherTech championship and contested the 2018 24 Hours of Daytona in June. The GTE-spec racecar gives us a good idea of what to expect from the production M8, which will feature a 592 hp 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8. Also present will be the eight-speed automatic transmission found in the current M5, along with BMW’s M xDrive all-wheel-drive system.
