Front bumper is all messed up. Looks better than the CLS though. Old 8 was something else...

Looks good overall, but, the front is rather confused. Can't say if it's better than a CLS, but, it's certainly more agressive, but, so is a Jag XF which looks even better.
I loved the old 8 Series and I thought the new one would be a two door coupe too. Not to be!

Aditya the Jag is not going to follow the coupe like roofline for the production version, the article said that the roofline would die with the concept and would be turned into a regular sedan with the aggressive looks it was given..

I think this new 8 is really growing on me and i want one..in the M form plz..

i am glad BMW has gotten into it, my issue with the CLS55 when i test drove it was, the missing elements that M5 could only provide. CLS looks >> M5 where as CLS over all driving dynamics << M5 so this may be does it M8 would be perfect driving machine and if its in about 120-130k range then it would be competing with the panemera which is cool..

the older 8 series looks better but this kinda looks like a ford interceptor concept.

Mmm yummy! Although something doesn't look BMWish. Maybe the headlight design is throwing me off.

I never understood what the deal is with 4 door coupe. Anyone care to tutor me? Do they have a center pillar? Shorter roofline? What makes them 4 door coupe?

Coupish roofline, its more sloping that a regulat sedan, giving it very aggresive stance while looking like a coupe(well sort off)..
