"The BMW 8 Series will take over as the new flagship model of the BMW line-up and, as such, combines unsurpassed sportiness and elegance", said BMW VP, Adrian van Hooydonk.

The concept shows extreme surface play, but while such a description could also be used for the Bangle era BMWs, the styling cues we have here are overly appealing.

So far BMW hasn't offered up much in the way of detail on this concept.

BMW says the M8 showcases an updated design language and paves the way for a new understanding of the luxury sports auto.

One unexpected release of the Geneva Motor Show 2018 is the BMW M8 Gran Coupe Concept.

Guatemala to move embassy to Jerusalem in May, says president
Guatemala "maintains the highest level of political dialogue with Israel, and has a very strong relationship", Morales said . Guatemala was the first nation after the U.S. to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, on December 24, 2017.

Mercedes-Benz broke the cone of silence on the AMG GT Four-Door Coupe (known as a "sedan" outside Germany) at the Geneva auto show on Tuesday.

"The Salève Vert paint finish, whose colour appears to change from green to greyish blue in different lights, creates a hugely effective surface composition and teams up with the gold-coloured window graphic, hallmark M gills, gold-coloured brakes, wheel rims and M twin exhaust tailpipes to give the auto a head-turning, all-new look, " the press release states.

The Gran Coupe concept adds two doors onto the 8 Series Coupe concept, which debuted at Pebble Beach last spring. "With this vehicle, BMW M unmistakably brings luxury out of the "comfort zone".

The new BMW's cabin is set well back within the wheelbase and receives a heavily rounded roofline and fixed B-pillar as part of a shallow 6-window glasshouse that tapers toward the rear.

It receives a bold-looking front end featuring a prominent front-bumper assembly with a trio of sizeable air ducts, a new interpretation of BMW's traditional kidney grille that is joined in the middle and features upturned outer edges similar in treatment to the recently introduced X2, angular headlamps with distinctive LED graphics and a long flowing hood. The roof, made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic, slopes down to a large fin on the trunk.
