BMW has just teased the all-new 8-series through its official Facebook page. The car has already been leaked in multiple spy images a few days back and this is the first time that BMW has officially released a picture of its new flagship. As the car has been already revealed in the spy images, there is not much to be unwrapped now. Besides the new BMW 8-series, the German automaker has also shared a video of the car in action at its test track in Aprilia, Italy. The car in the footage was wrapped in camouflage though. BMW has shared the teaser image of the new 8-series with the caption - "A glimpse of the future. The new BMW 8-series." The teaser image does not show much about the upcoming new BMW 8-series but the tail light pattern is visible and it looks exactly like the one that we have seen on the spy images a few days back.
The new BMW 8-series is expected to make its global debut in the coming days. Besides the 8-series, the company is also working on M8 GTE, which is the performance version of the 8-series. As one would expect from the German automaker, the new BMW M8 GTE looks menacing, all thanks to its sporty livery and additional performance friendly bits on offer.

Currently, there are no details on the engine of the new BMW 8-series. It is believed that the car will get its power from a twin-turbocharged V8. The motor is expected to come mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system will most likely come as standard. As far as India launch is concerned, the new BMW 8-series might make its way to the country a few months after its global debut. Expect more details on the new BMW 8-series to be revealed in the coming days.
