It seems like just about almost everyday a patent image leaks, which provides a preview of what the future holds. Following a few patent image leaks in June, we now have another look at the upcoming BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and Convertible models.
The latest patent leaks come to us thanks to Dutch site Auto Visie, which posted several patent photos of both the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and 8 Series Convertible. The 8 Series Gran Coupe was previewed earlier this year with the M8 Gran Coupe concept and it looks like not much will change for the production model. The biggest changes that we can see so far are toned down front and rear bumpers that are a lot less aggressive than the concept.
The BMW 8 Series Convertible will look closer to the 8 Series Coupe, with the biggest difference being the softtop.
BMW has confirmed that both the 8 Series Gran Coupe and 8 Series Convertible will be added to the lineup soon, but we don’t know when they will be officially revealed. BMW has also confirmed that an M8 Gran Coupe and M8 convertible are also in the works.
