In a smart power play technique, BMW is using this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy to debut a teaser for the upcoming reissuing of the famed BMW Concept 8 Series that’s due out in the latter part of 2018, nearly 20 years after the series was laid to rest. And based on first impressions, the redux series looks slated to feature a new aerodynamic and luxurious design.

Details at the time of publishing are limited when it comes to exact specifications and powertrain information on this new ride. However, what we do know is the 8 Series will be a larger build complete with ample rear passenger space. As for the body, the long nose and short tail of this thing give it real sporty appearance while the 8 Series’ lights also utilize laser technology and cameras take the place of the standard side mirrors. Large 21-inch light-alloy wheels also set the 8 Series off in sport mode while a Merino leather and carbon fiber interior add a luxurious element to what’s expected to be a quick ride.
