Style over technology

The Precise contours and exciting muscular surfaces of BMW Concept 8 Series promise a dynamic driving experience from the very first sight.

There is a carbon-fiber shell to the interior, with the ultra-strong material used alongside hand-polished aluminum on detailing. The gearstick is made from Swarovski glass with a "smoky quartz look".
