By now, we’re sure you’ve seen the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe. Despite the car still being under embargo for a little while longer, some official photos have leaked ahead of time, showing off the car in full. BMW isn’t happy about this but we’re sure you don’t mind. If you’ve seen the leaked photos, you know it’s a stunner. In fact, I think it will be BMW’s best looking car.

In the photos we’ve seen of it, it actually looks better than the 8 Series Coupe. Though, that’s not entirely surprising given that the same could be said for the old 6 Series Gran Coupe and its two-door sibling. Having said that, I think the 8 Series Gran Coupe looks even better than the old 6er.
It’s everything I’d hoped it would be. In fact, I think it looks even better than I was expecting. It’s long, low and sleek, with muscular rear haunches and an integrated rear spoiler. There’s something so elegant and seductive about its looks that it’d be my choice over the coupe ten times out of ten.
Personally, I love the way the rear taillights blend into the rear spoiler and the sharp crease just above the flared rear wheel arch. BMW also finally stuck the door handles into the shoulder line of the car, lining them up properly, rather than having them just sort of floating around underneath.
When the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe debuts, I genuinely believe it will be the brand’s best looking car since the 6 Series Gran Coupe and the best looking car in its lineup full stop. I can’t wait to see it in person and I especially can’t wait to drive it. The best part? Soon after, BMW will release an M8 Gran Coupe. I’ll have to stand on something tall to give my jaw enough room to drop, when that debuts.
