BMW 8-Series is a rival for the S-Class Coupe image

And it doesn’t seem to be that far from hitting the dealerships actually.

With the new generation of the BMW 7-Series being officially unveiled a week ago, rendering artists have went berserk and have created different versions of the flagship sedan. These included a new range-topping M7 and also a more practical 7-Series Touring. But since one of the biggest rivals of the BMW 7-Series, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, is being offered in a coupe version too, chances are the Bavarian based automaker will consider introducing such a model too.

The image posted above is nothing more than a simple rendering which has been signed by X-Tomi Design. The vehicle is a two-door version of the new 7-Series generation which, if developed, will be taking aim at the S-Class Coupe and also at the production version of the Audi Prologue Concept. If it will indeed hit dealerships over the next few years, expect the same architecture of the regular 7-Series to be used, along with the same technologies and safety features. The interior design will be similar too and the only main difference will be the two rear doors which will be missing and the slightly sloping roof line. As far as the engine lineup goes, this will be borrowed from the sedan. Chances are that if this will turn out to hit the assembly line, than it will also get a true M version. However, these are nothing more than simple speculations at this time but dreaming isn’t hurting anyone.
