The new 8 Series is BMW’s flagship car – a luxurious grand tourer that’s designed to compete with rivals such as the Audi A7 Sportback and Mercedes S-Class Coupé, and even the Aston Martin DB11 in its hottest form.

Essentially a coupé version of the 7 Series luxury saloon, the new car marks the return of the 8 Series name for the first time since 1999. It’s been conceived to push BMW further upmarket, combining the performance of a Porsche 911 with the practicality and luxury of the 7 Series.
