Autoprojecoes has envisioned a modern BMW 8-Series based on the recently unveiled Gran Lusso Coupe Concept.

We already know Mercedes-Benz is preparing a coupe version of the new S-Class so it shouldn't come as a surprise if BMW will decide to resurrect the 8-Series moniker in the near future. Seen here is an 8-Series render based on the Gran Lusso Coupe Concept which was shown last month by BMW and Pininfarina at Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d’Este.

As you would imagine, this production version is seen as a toned down variant of the concept with a different kidney grille, BMW production lamps and alloys, as well as a redesigned front apron.
