The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe is likely to polarise

The first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is available in a locally-produced petrol variant-BMW 630i Gran Turismo Sport Line and can be booked at KUN Exclusive Chennai

It has debuted today at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 so expect some live photos later in the day from the show floor!

BMW makes no mention of the engine, but thanks to the GTE's seventh-in-class run at January's Daytona 24, we know that the production auto will use a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8, expected to produce around 600hp.

BMW's getting ahead of itself with its unusual 8 Series and M8 launch strategy, and before it's even released a picture or mechanical titbit of the forthcoming flagship coupe in road trim, it's already announcing new derivatives. The concept gives a look at what the face of the 8 Series will look like when it goes on sale in 2019, with the new angular kidney-shaped grilles, and the headlights that borrow styling impressions from the M8 GTE endurance racing auto.

Later on Sunday the White House said in a statement that "denuclearization must be the result of any dialogue with North Korea". President Trump called the measures targeting the country's shipping industry "the heaviest sanctions ever imposed".

The Concept M8 Gran Coupe's arrival follows the unveiling of the Concept 8-Series Coupe at last year's Villa D'Este Concorso D'Eleganza in Como, Italy, as well as the unleashing of an M8 Coupe prototype during a promotional event at the 2017 Nurburgring 24-hour endurance race in Germany.

BMW will present production versions of the M8 Gran Coupe and 8 Series Gran Coupe next year, likely as replacements for the outgoing 6 Series Gran Coupe.

Gone are the days of purist understatement in the global luxury market. The aggressively styled front end and bulging rear body lines accentuate the rear track width and, like that of the M2, hint at the cars performance capability.

The two rear cameras are arranged vertically in the middle and the device also sports a dual-tone LED flash with Zeiss optics. This device features a 6-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) IPS LCD display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage .

So far BMW hasn't offered up much in the way of detail on this concept. Moving along the side, the long wheelbase is evident with a short rear. The model will also go up against the Porsche Panamera.

"The BMW 8 Series will take over as the new flagship model of the BMW line-up and, as such, combines unsurpassed sportiness and elegance". With the vehicle we want to reach people who are looking for something special and want to stand out from the crowd.
