The BMW brand has started testing the updated version of the 8 Series family, presented in 2018. Judging by the pictures published by the Autoevolution edition, the novelty will receive several minor changes in the exterior.
The prototype of the new BMW 8 Series model came out for tests in three versions at once: a coupe, a “four-door coupe” and an M-modification. In all three variants of cars, only the front part with the bumper, the radiator grille and part of the hood, as well as the stern and fragments of the rear lights, were covered with camouflage.
Most likely, it is in the closed parts of the novelty that the main changes in the model’s appearance will be concentrated, and they will be minimal. At the same time, the modernized BMW 8 Series model will not get the significantly enlarged grille, which the company’s designers used on the BMW 4 Series Coupe.
Autoevolution expects that with the update the BMW 8 Series model will receive a number of new multimedia solutions in the interior. In addition, the power line may change. It is possible that BMW will support the electrification course set by its colleagues from Mercedes-Benz and equip the 8 Series with hybrid power units.
