On the possibility of the emergence of a new model told the vice president of design of the German brand

Company BMW is considering the release of the flagship coupe 9 series, which will compete with the luxury Mercedes-Maybach S600. The appearance of such a model in the line of the German manufacturer in an interview with Autocar was hinted by the vice-president of the design of the BMW Group Adrian Van Hoydonk.

“We are not going to stop at the G8,” – Van Hoydonk says. – Our job is to create more models than the company can now build. Our team has big plans, we look at what the BMW line will be up to 2030″.

At the heart of the BMW 9-Series coupe will be a platform similar to the one used in the new 8-Series. The range of power units is likely to be similar: a three-liter diesel with 320 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque, as well as a 530-hp twin-turbo V8 with a volume of 4.4 liters.
