OH SHIT... is that an Aston Martin???


Here is the BMW!







BMW CS Concept

Supposedly, this will be badged as the 8-Series and will go on sale relatively soon. Longer and wider than the 7-series.!!! Extremely low as well, lower than the MB CLS!

It will compete against:

MB CLS
Aston Martin Rapide (above)
Porsche Panamera

So what do you Bimmer guys think? Bangle-sticked? Sure, but it looks very nice if you ask me. Front could be a bit nicer, but DAMN, side profile is amazing! Back is pretty good too. And according to sources, it points towards future design direction for BMW.

Looks a little too big to me.
Two major questions I have...
Where are the door handles? Why is this a 4 door?

Well this is the concept... the production version will be slightly tamed and toned down.

It is a 4-door because:

It will compete against:

MB CLS
Aston Martin Rapide
Porsche Panamera

I just don't recall seeing any 4 door versions of the previous 8 Series. Times change I guess. It looks like the door handles might be up there by the window glass.

guys don't get too carried away because it is just speculation that it will go on sale soon!

but chances are good, as BMW has been wanting to build a CLS competitor, and i guess this is it.

price will of course depend on the engine, and will be comparable to price of the 7-series.

Not bad. Not bad at all...front looks too much like the Z4 for my tastes though (though I actually see some 507 in the proportion and position of the grille), and the eyebrows have got to go.

I actually don't like it much, but I bet that once it's toned down a little, it'll get prettier. kinda like how the 6 series looks compared to the z9 concept.

They're rocking a MB S65, which is pretty much the top of the heap.

I'm not sure I like this more than a CLS, but I'd have to reserve judgement until seeing it in person.

it was officially released today... yesterday's pics were leaked. here is the report with details on it:

http://www.worldcarfans.com/news.cfm/newsID/2070420.006/page/1/country/gcf/lang/eng/bmw/bmw-cs-concept-officially-unveiled-in-shanghai

for those who like it, lots of high-res pics here: http://www.autoblog.com/photos/bmw-concept-cs

someone asked about door handles:

Quote :
"The door handlers are integrated into the flanks of the BMW Concept CS even more discreetly: Housed within a chrome-bar running to the rear at the height of the contour line, the door handlers controlled by sensors move out only when really needed. "


you can almost see them in the pics.


and some shots in bigger size where it looks the best:

BMW 0.5 Series

http://www.motorauthority.com/cars/bmw/preview-2010-bmw-minicar/

Quote :
"There have been numerous reports pertaining to the possibility of BMW building a new model positioned below the 1-series hatch that’ll share its underpinnings with the current Mini. Not only would the car be the first FWD BMW, it would also be cheapest as it’s rumored to cost less than the aforementioned Mini. "

That mini-bmw is just a concept sketch anyway. Its proportions aren't going to be perfect in that one drawing.

I know some people who love their mini coopers that would be all over a car like that...

I guess if BMW has to do FWD, this'd be a good car to do it with... But I kinda doubt they'll do it. Give it 240-250hp and RWD, and it'd be a winner though.

Artist's renderings based on new spy shots of the BMW V-Series.

Dubbed PAS: Progressive Activity Sedan. Strictly a 4-seater. Basically a sedan/wagon/ute crossover with high ground clearance.





Thumbnails above. Full sized pics too big:

Is that the same as the new X6, b/c the concept seems identical.

Nah the X6 is out already. Yes, the concept seems the same, but see the spy shots in my last post before the previous one (post from september). It seems like a high shortened station wagon.

BMW 8-Series [to be] revived... now for real!

https://www.motor1.com/news/145165/bmw-8-series-teaser/

BMW 8 Series Teaser Confirms Long-Awaited Return Of The Fabled Name

Quote :
"For this year’s show, the Bavarians are taking a step closer to a production model by introducing the appropriately called “8 Series Coupe Concept.” The full reveal is scheduled for May 26 when we will get an accurate picture of what to expect from the road-going model."


Here is the official teaser image:



I wonder how much of the styling will be influenced by the Gran Lusso Concept from 2013, as the headlights and taillights look identical:

IMO they should just restart production of the 90's era 8 Series, with updated tech underneath. Those lines are bold and timeless.
