BMW has announced a new 8 Series Coupé. The new car features BMW’s xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system and EfficientLightweight design measures. The company says the new car was developed alongside the BMW M8 GTE – a race car that has already proven its potential in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) long-distance races and in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (IWSC) held in North America.
The new BMW 8 Series Coupé will be launched in November 2018 and will be built at BMW’s Dingolfing plant, which is also home to the BMW 7 Series Saloon. BMW says the number ‘8’ in the model name stands for a high- ranking status within its product range.
