At the disposal of the newspaper Autoreview were the first images of the serial coupe BMW 8 series of a new generation. The public debut of the car will take place on Friday evening, June 15, on the race track in Le Mans. In the marathon for the first time since 2011, the cars of the German brand M8 GTE will be launched.
According to the publication, in its overall dimensions, the G-8 will be close to the cars of the sixth series, which will soon be withdrawn from production. As for the chassis, the novelty will be unified with a four-door fifth series.

Subsequently, the appearance of a “charged” version of the M8 with a four-liter twin-turbo unit with a capacity of about 600 forces is planned.
