The BMW 8 Series is Back

After a 19-year hiatus, the New BMW Concept 8 Series is back and is the dominant topic of conversation among automobiles this week.

BMW takes both classic design elements as well as i8 hybrid features, and ads a fresh new take on them, making the 8 series a top contender among its peers.

Some of the luxury touches include a faceted ground gearshift lever, an iDrive controller made from Swarovski glass, carbon-fibre shells for the leather-covered seats.

The Series 8 coupe is coming in 2018.
