The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe shares the spotlight with the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, which was reveled in production form in Geneva.

"The BMW 8 Series will take over as the new flagship model of the BMW line-up and, as such, combines unsurpassed sportiness and elegance", says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.

Just like the 8 Series concept, the M8 Gran Coupe concept previews BMW's new design language, which is now more expressive.

BMW's upcoming 8 Series flagship has generated a lot of hype over the past year or so. We are, of course, talking about the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door, which has just landed at the Swiss event that marked the introduction of the BMW M concept auto.

One unexpected release of the Geneva Motor Show 2018 is the BMW M8 Gran Coupe Concept.

The BMW 8-Series coupe and convertible are expected to debut later this year. It symbolises a new and unique understanding of luxury.

The new BMW's cabin is set well back within the wheelbase and receives a heavily rounded roofline and fixed B-pillar as part of a shallow 6-window glasshouse that tapers toward the rear.

The surface details on the hood and doors also reinforce the performance flavor of the concept, which wears a Saleve Vert paint finish that appears to switch from grayish blue to green under different lighting conditions. As on early BMW coupes, the kidney elements are linked by an unbroken grille surround, creating a large single element. The air intakes are cast in carbonfibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP).
