If you've been a fan waiting for and anticipating what the BMW 8 Series might look like, here's a sneak peak at images that are apparently of the upcoming coupe. The images were first posted on the germancarforum. It is slated to be a new flagship for the brand. The 8 Series concept will be officially unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy on 26th May.

The 8-Series concept is a stylish two-door coupe which features a bold front fascia with a massive grille that is flanked by slender headlights. The car also has a rakish windscreen, large front fender vents, and lightweight alloy wheels which cover huge brake discs and gold calipers.

It gets a slightly sloping roofline which tapers down towards the integrated spoiler. The concept also has an aggressive rear bumper and what appears to be a dual exhaust system.

The new 8 Series is expected to replace the 6 Series Coupe. BMW stopped production of the 6 Series Coupe in February, but it continues to produce 6-Series Gran Coupe and Convertible models.

There is so far not much information available on the 8 Series, but it s likely to based on the CLAR platform that underpins the 5- and 7-Series. It is also speculated to be powered by a 6.6-liter V12 that produces 601 hp and 799 Nm of torque.

The German manufacturer has also had a series of names trademarked, including 825, 830, 835, 850, 845, 860, M8 and M850. So, a M division 8er is perhaps also in the pipeline.
