The German based automaker BMW will not put the 8-Series into production in the near future, as a company representative has recently said.
The upcoming BMW 8-Series, in its final production version, based on the Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe Concept, will not hit the production line as soon as expected. According to a company’s representative, the model in question will not be out in the near future. An 8-Series badge will probably see daylight at the end of the decade, but the date isn’t very exact, so the carmaker’s fans, who were expecting this model, will have to be more than patient in order to get their hands on it.
The final production version of the BMW 8-Series should have been based on the Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe Concept, which was officially presented to the public a few months ago, during the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, at Lake Como, in Italy. The model in question is getting LED taillights, very rare and very old wood trim, which is said to be approximately 48,000 years old, Italian leather made by Foglizzo and a 6.0 liter V12 engine under its hood.
