2019 BMW 8 Series – Sexy, Phone Compatible, and Massive Tailpipes

The BMW 8 Series coupe has been extinct for what may seem like centuries. However, BMW has rediscovered and harvested its original DNA, modernized it, gave it an aggressive stance, and slapped a pair of massive tailpipes that look more like a torpedo launcher. This is the 2019 BMW Concept 8 Series in production ready clothes, and yes, it has not changed a whole lot from when it was teased earlier last year.

It comes with LED headlights, an optional carbon fiber roof, and an underbody that is so smooth, you might mistake it for a fighter jet undercarriage. It has been designed to reduce drag, reduce weight, and with its 523 horsepower 4.4-liter V8, it is also designed to interest the sophisticated performance driver that might normally opt for something, like say… the Mercedes Benz S-Class. Would you care to step inside?

This is where all the magic happens, including adaptive cruise control, lane control, a 16 speaker Harmon Kardon stereo system, Merino sports seats, ambient lighting, and the ability to use your smartphone instead of a clumpy pair of keys. This is a winning move for BMW we suspect, and we can gloat on how we were right later this Fall when this classy beast finally hits dealerships.

2017 BMW Z4 Concept Forges Jason Statham Out of Ryan Seacrest

The 2009 BMW Z4 was beautiful, soft, and flashy – much like Ryan Seacrest. But BMW’s new 2017 Z4 concept offers a much more rugged appeal.

The  Z4’s previous smooth lines have been replaced with precision edges and purposeful angles. Its wedge-like profile is now aggressive, masculine, and muscular, in a Jason Statham sort of fashion.

And when BMW talks about a “driver car”, this concept takes those words very seriously. The Z4 concept features a blacked out cockpit that is very much set apart from the passenger’s side orange living room tea area.

But all business and no play make Jason a dull boy, which is why those cool silver domes in the rear that will offer great rollover protection – will also look fantastic doing it. And I’m rarely one to comment on an ass, but this Z4 concept certainly has a nice one.
