    I heard there is a new 8 series coming from BMW, does anybody have a scoop on it? I saw the timeline of upcoming cars on AutocarUK i bought here in Malaysia.
    and, do you think it will be another M1 or just a car to challenge the Aston Rapide and Porsche Panamera?

    Just to share what i know on this car.
    It will be a 2+2 coupe in the style of the Porsche Panamera. However despite a lot of rumours of it being an 'M8' it is now quite sure that i will not bare the 'M' badge in the way the M1 was released. Just like it was when the BMW 850 was released it will merely be an 8 series BMW.
    Strange thing about this is that the car is actually under development with BMW Motorsport but thus far all rumours point to a non 'M' labeled car.
    As for powerplants the strongest rumour points towards a 6 liter V-12 but there is also the possibility of a twin-turbo V8.
    As for the looks of the car; this is as good as anybody's guess but let's hope they are not making it look like the BMW CS concept from a few years back.
