2011 BMW 8-Series Concept

Talk about BMW’s plans of bringing back the 8-Series isn’t anything new. Initially, it was believed that the production version of the Gran Coupe Concept would carry the 8-Series name, but the company opted for a 6-Series Gran Coupe nomenclature instead, further convincing folks in the industry of the need for another, larger luxury four-door coupe.

Turkish industrial designer, Ismet Çevik, feels the same way, which is why he created an image of what could be the new 8-Series. His image goes against the four door configuration of the 6-Series Gran Coupe and illustrates a true two-door Grand Tourer.

"It’s actually a real rival to the Mercedes CL. Because I think the 6-Series is not a full comparison to the CL-Class. I went a bit further from a CL, and also included Rolls-Royce and Bentley influences. It is definitely a 90′s legend 8-Series. High class, business, luxury and supersport. Created to be new legend for BMW," said Ismet Çevik about his concept.

I’m not impressed with the body paint. This will be more interesting if it has a great color combination and a good foundation of concept.

I am not into cars with a body paint like this, but prior to the design of this 8-series, i might have some consideration. The front design looks fantastic, the rear views mirrors are so small but super cute. I love it.

One of the famous car today is BMW. I don’t like the body paint. I think it will be more awesome if it has a good combination of colors resulting to be a striking one.

This one is cute but I didn;t find the body paint as a helpful point on it. It’ll look more luxurious in red body paint, i wonder what is the speed performance and engine specs of this concept.

I agree with you ConcernCitizen! This one will look even perfect with different color. I think darker brown will be okay or ligher shade of colors will also do.

This one is really oozing with angst! I love the initial looks of this one. It looks perfect, but I think it will be more impressive if they use an outstanding body paint than to that one.
