Our friend X-Tomi from Hungary is back with yet another virtual interpretation of the new BMW 7-Series
Our friend X-Tomi from Hungary is back with yet another virtual interpretation of the new BMW 7-Series.
Following the Touring and M7 versions, the designer has created an appealing coupe model, called the 8-Series. It features the shape of the 6-Series Coupe, but comes with longer wheelbase and 7-Series-inspired front end. It also features the typical sloping roofline for the coupe segment.
Looking back at BMW’s history, we can see the 8-Series was manufactured from 1989 to 1999 with more than 31,000 examples produced. The flagship model for the Bavarian company at that time was offered with V8 and V12 engines and had an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
It’s interesting to note that the company even had plans to offer a range-topping M8 version but the project was scrapped. BMW created only one prototype of the model but reportedly locked it away because it was unsafe for road use. The vehicle was presented to journalists for a single time during The Legends of the Autobahn car show in California.
