BMW announces return of the 8-Series with upcoming concept

While all-eyes will be on this concept luxury coupe at the event, it will provide an accurate idea about what the upcoming BMW 8 Series Coupe will look like. First launched as a luxury-sports coupe in the mid-1970s, the 6-Series evolved into more of a boulevardier when it was reintroduced for the 2004 model year. BMW is on a model offensive, refreshing the entire portfolio and introducing newer vehicles.

BMW aims to increase revenues in the luxury segment "significantly" by 2020, Krueger said. Two months later, images and details of the coupe were revealed.

For 2018, the 6-Series lineup starts off with the $82,395 640i Gran Coupe and tops out over $125,000 with the B6 Alpina Gran Coupe. That leaves the 7's twin-turbo inline-six, twin-turbo V-8, and likely the M760i's twin-turbo V-12 as solid choices-and it would preserve our right to declare the future 8-series all ate up with motor. The standard transmission is a 6-speed manual while an 8-speed automatic is available.

The new 1 Series and 2 Series will go on sale in July. They went on sale in the USA market in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Priyanka Chopra's emotional note post Nirbhaya gang rape verdict
The four convicts - Mukesh (27), Pawan (20), Vinay (21) and Akshay (29) - have been sentenced to death by the Supreme Court. Priyanka Chopra took to Twitter to write an emotional letter after the verdict of Nirbhaya case came out yesterday.

At 4,432 millimetres in length, the BMW 2 Series Coupe and BMW 2 Series Convertible condense their sporting prowess into a compact package. This leaves some space between the 8-Series and the Rolls-Royce Wraith in the greater BMW empire, while stretching BMW upward.

Exhausted of watching Mercedes-Benz launch hit after hit in the high-end segment for two-door cars, BMW is finally ready to join the fray with its own offering-something that's long overdue.

The company has also registered the name M8, indicating a high-performance version will also be offered. A 12-cylinder version is also coming, sources previous year told Automobilwoche.

Besides making it more fun to drive, BMW made a decision to upgrade the cabin and make it as good as a 7-Series.
