  • BMW 8 Series to return with a new flagship model!

The upcoming 8 Series will arrive by 2020 with a multi material architecture.

BMW just announced they will be resurrecting the Series 8. The BMW Series 8 will arrive with a new flagship model. The Series 8 model is planned to arrive by 2020 and is part of moves to provide greater competition to long-time adversaries. The adversaries include the Mercedes-Benz S-Class coupé and the Bentley Continental GT.

The new BMW 8 Series will have a technological flagship with driveline components. The new BMW Series 8 model will come with a unique multi-material architecture.

The electrical system and connectivity solutions will resemble those in the sixth-generation 7 Series. Sources claim to AutoCar that the Series 8 will be manufactured at BMW’s Dingolfing factory in Germany after 2020.

Sources have further shared two differing layouts for the 8 Series have already been put out. The layouts have been put before the BMW chairman Harald Krueger.

Krueger is personally overlooking the plans to extend the BMW line-up. The aim of the extension is to include additional BMW luxury models. The first layout for the Series 8 resembles the four-door layout of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé.

However the Series 8 will have a bigger and nobler four-door layout in appearance. The second layout option is a classic two-door coupé and cabriolet pairing. The layout of the 8 Series will be finalized by BMW in 2018 and a concept will be showcased the same year.

The BMW Series 8 originally ran in production from 1989 to 1999 as a two-door coupé. In 2010 there were rumors of the return of the Series 8 but were laid to rest by 2013. Now BMW has officially announced the revival itself.
