MHH International And A Taste Of BMW For 2019
The letter ‘M’ in this case appears to stand for ‘more’, more of everything. BMW M cars always offer dynamic excellence and are truly cars for people who love to drive. For 2019, the BMW M8 Gran Coupé, seen here in concept form, demonstrates a new facet of luxury for the brand, super-sporty, with extrovert styling.
It will be the flagship for the brand and we learn that this spectacular vehicle is more than simply a luxury sports car with four doors. It symbolises, say the company, a new and unique understanding of luxury for drivers who are looking for something special and who want to stand out from the crowd.
Low to the road and broad in stance, the eye-catching front end of the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupé delivers an immediate promise of an exceptional performance experience. The muscular surfaces and precise contours of the bonnet hint at the beast within. As we like to say, it looks fast standing still.
The contours of the radiator grille kidneys broaden as they descend towards the road thus emphasising the car’s impressive low centre of gravity. The headlights are positioned slightly higher than the kidneys and give them the impression of sitting lower, which further emphasizes the car’s closeness to the road. Within the headlights, the lighting technology familiar from the M8 GTE endurance racer provides a dynamic, hexagonal interpretation of BMW’s signature four-eyed front end.
Even when viewed from a distance, as seen in the concept images, the proportions of the BMW M8 Gran Coupé radiate the car’s dynamic character. A long wheelbase coupled with the traditional long bonnet, flowing roofline and short tail create an elegant silhouette. The roof flows into the rear by means of sculpted fins. Lower down, the flared wheel arches offer a visual expression of the power working through the rear axle. At the outer edges, the slim, sculpted rear lights with black glass covers underscore the car’s wide stance on the road. Below them, the bumper picks up the front apron’s dynamic theme. The prominent diffuser and two sets of familiar M twin exhaust tailpipes together send out a clear message of absolute performance. It’s every inch a BMW M saloon.
