Description: And despite the somewhat disturbing robot-like voice-over, the video just makes us want to see a new 8 Series even more. A production version of the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe would do just fine...

Such a cool car!
Tyler Wallace Jul 05, 2013
the alpina b8 i would make love to
Robi Dunay Jul 05, 2013
The Lusso would be cool but i think all of their cars need to go on a massive diet. A sporty skinnier version of the Lusso would be great IMO

Why do i see talking sausage, i need to eat sm
Joe Hero Jul 05, 2013
Ever since I saw The Italian Job I've wanted one of these - such a kickass car
Nick Rowe Jul 05, 2013
Coupe version of the 7 series and call it the 8! Just like they did with the 3 and 4 series!
Aaron Abely Jul 05, 2013
No, the lusso is a no. Make something like THIS! The old 8 series.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Jul 07, 2013
I love this car! Was actually thinking about getting one some time ago.
Michael Luck Jul 05, 2013
The current 6 is huge compared to the 8 series. I sill want one of these, in CSI trim.
Marko Popovic Jul 05, 2013
There was a 6 series e24 built from 1976 to 1989, but it only had 6 cylinders
Stephen Cobbs Jul 05, 2013
@John. Nope. Needs to be bigger and have a V12.
johnlbattersby Jul 05, 2013
Doesn't the current 6 series coupe pretty much fulfill the same roll of the old 8 series?
Tyrone Smith Jul 05, 2013
It was a V12 too. That makes it that much cooler.
Alvaro Perez Jul 05, 2013
God such a beautiful car
Dylan Bruder Jul 05, 2013
This was pretty cool
justin.a.bertrand Jul 08, 2013
crazy but look at a ford tbird from the 90's and they look alike
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Jul 07, 2013
Awesome car!
Julio Valdez Jul 06, 2013
If this thing was optioned with a v12, whoever took that option had in my opinion one of the most kickass cars ever. But if it really only came in automatic I take my previous statement back
Russ Sugar Jul 06, 2013
The gear box was the worst in this car. 4 speed automatic :(
bdalling Jul 05, 2013
LOVE this car. I rarely see one 850 and one 840 driving around where I live, and they look great.
Jacob Burford Jul 05, 2013
Sweet car! They have to bring it back!
timothyhubert1 Jul 05, 2013
still one of the best looking bmws ever made love this car
Marcus Toth Jul 05, 2013
E39 m5 wheels right?
Michael J Solimene Jul 05, 2013
Tanton Stoneman Jul 05, 2013
I have never seen one of those with that type of rim... I need one...
Ed Paraison Jul 05, 2013
Best BMW ever !!!
Stephen Cobbs Jul 05, 2013
E31 Icon. Nice plates.
Tyrone Smith Jul 05, 2013
Looks very good here.
Luke Purdy Jul 05, 2013
Nicolai Stålstrøm Dalen Jul 06, 2013
I saw 12 of these, driving in a line on the motorway. They look really good
Lou Guerrero Jul 05, 2013
Damn, this is nice.
timothyhubert1 Jul 05, 2013
ive always wanted one of these beautiful design inside and out.
Marcus Toth Jul 05, 2013
Randall, realize there are things called opinions
Justin Johnson Jul 05, 2013
I got one up to 142 and it felt like it was going 65. Back in the 90s too, I felt so pimp.
Michael Luck Jul 05, 2013
It is an absolutely stunning GT. The only GTs I can think of that look better are Astons.
Donald Cormier Jul 05, 2013
Best car BMW ever made. I love mine
Trent Fiala Jul 05, 2013
Sorry but I find this thing ugly! May be the first time I've ever seen it but it is hideous
Tyrone Smith Jul 05, 2013
It's not beautiful. It's awesome, but not beautiful by any means.
Julian Pilinci Jul 05, 2013
It still look more beautiful than some stupid cars made 20 yrs later!
Matt Burgess Jul 05, 2013
Me like
Petro Maalouf Jul 05, 2013
I love it in red
Colin Carlo Jul 05, 2013
Two of these 8 series coupes live in my small Canadian town, one extremely nice silver one and a rusty, all blacked out one
Michael Luck Jul 05, 2013
A smaller tail light would improve the looks.
Will Will Jul 05, 2013
Not liking the rear. I feel that this is one of those where, like the sls, the front is just too beautiful, such that no matter what you design for the back, its hard to actually make it look nice. These cars should only be viewed from the front.
Tyrone Smith Jul 05, 2013
I love the whole rear end on this car. So much different from any other bimmer.
Daniel Zizka Jul 05, 2013
I always thought they had too large rear lights... Beautiful car never the less

nice pipes!
