We have already seen what BMW has to offer on the BMW M8 model and now, we get to see what the convertible model will look like as the vehicle was spotted out in the open.

From the front, the M8 convertible looks a lot like the coupe version BMW has been teasing, sporting a camouflaged front fascia with similarly large intake openings. Essentially, this previews the return of the BMW 8 Series, a low production but much beloved range-topping grand touring coupe that shuttled Wall Street types around town from the late 1980s to the late 1990s. Exactly what engine those intakes feed remains a mystery, but it could be a variant of BMW's twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8. The 2018 BMW M5 was revealed earlier this week with an updated version of the V8 that produces 600 hp and 750 Nm of torque, but the German brand will want to give it more power, hence comes in the V12.

Little else is known about the BMW M8, but if it looks anything like the Concept 8 Series, it should be absolutely gorgeous.

It's not clear yet if the production 8 Series will take the place of the 6 Series, but the new coupe would slot in above the Sixer, and butt heads with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe on the showroom floor.
