Thumbs up

Anyone know anything about this new BMW 8 series i've seen... I saw it in Newton Abbot at the Penn Inn roundabout (Devon, England). I think it had rear wheel arch "covers" so only 50% of the rear wheels are seen.

I can't find anything on this car on the Internet... everyone says no more 8 series were made after 1999.


Also, anyone recognise this car? : -

It looks like the new 6 series. Currently there isnt a 8 series yet in production, nor I never seen a concept of it.

I don't wanna sound stupid in saying his, but, it kind of reminds me of the new Martin V12's.

yes, the new 6 series takes after many different car company styles.. but then it has its own little angle .. i personally think the car is beautiful.
