The 2019 BMW 8 Series marks the return of the famous brand, and like its predecessor from the 1990s, the new model will be a combination of luxury and modern sport. The Bavarian manufacturer confirmed that the M8 and M8 GTE models (unveiled) will appear on this car, which, despite its expectation, was released earlier than expected.
2019 BMW 8 Series exterior and interior
The new 2019 BMW 8 Series looks great and should attract the attention of many who were not impressed with the manufacturer’s design in the past. Whether you like it or not, most future BMWs will use a similar design. This is similar to how the Concept A concept is used in many future Mercedes compact cars.
At the front, BMW’s distinctive kidney grille has been maintained and the car has a sculpted bumper with large air intakes, thin headlamps and angular cover. BMW doesn’t really scream, but there’s nothing to complain about either.
The rear of the 2019 BMW 8 Series looks like an “extreme” evolution of part of the current BMW. It seems a lot to me.
Although it may not be an exact replica, the inner part of the Series 8 is similar to the concept. Features such as a 12.3-inch dashboard, a 10.25-inch entertainment and information display, and Harman Kardon stereo with sixteen speakers.
