New 8 Series Coupe on test

BMW is testing its upcoming 8 Series Coupe on a high-speed proving ground in Aprilia, Italy, writes Brian Byrne.

The tests serve in particular to optimise the vehicle’s driving dynamics on surfaces with a high friction coefficient and mark yet a further decisive stage on the way to the launch of the new BMW 8 Coupe during 2018.

They are being carried out on a disguised prototype.

The new BMW 8 Series Coupe is being developed parallel to and in close coordination with the BMW M8 and the BMW M8 GTE racing car.
