Possible 8 Series Gran Coupe teased ahead of Geneva reveal


If the companyÙs latest teaser is anything to go by, BMW has a seriously pretty car to at the Geneva Motor Show. BMW released it on Twitter, and it simply shows the profile of a long, curvy, -like vehicle. It has the traditional sports and GT car characteristics: long hood, short trunk, low raked windshield. But close examination reveals that, although -like, it’s actually a sedan, evidenced by gaps for front and rear doors.

Based on a recent rumor, we think this is an 8 Coupe. Even though the production 8 Series two-door hasn’t been unveiled yet, it’s coming soon. Plus, a sleek 8 Series sedan would make for a good competitor to other coupe-like sedans from Mercedes and Audi, especially if one of the engine offerings is a version of BMW’s twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 making upwards of 600 horsepower. We’ll find out exactly what this is, and hopefully what’s under the hood, when the car is fully unveiled next week in .

While we normally would make some jab at BMW for being too liberal with the coupe designations, we’ll cut this model a bit of slack. It looks gorgeous, even from what little we can see, and isn’t that the purpose of a coupe? To look more beautiful and sleek than a conventional sedan?
