Why has BMW not made the concept M8 Gran Coupe
 

 
This car looks amazing. From the beastly back, to the gold rims and rim trim, to thw amazing green color, everything about this car screams 10/10 and legendary and would probably be BMW’s most high end range top of the line. If a crazy looking ‘concept’ car like the gorgeous i8 was made then why cant this M8 Gran Coupe that looks just like this concept be made

They are busy testing a 8er Gran Coupe

The concept was just that, a concept. The normal 8er is a rebranded 6er

My guess is it was too dramatic. Just cuz we liked it, doesn't mean everyone will. To make money they gotta cater to a large demographic. So they had to water it down

Love it! Gonna get a 2019 now.

Its 0-60 in 4.2 and you feel the launch because its so lightweight. In a race the i8 smokes alot of cars from takeoff but then loses in the 2nd half of the race.

Super comfy ride

I know for one, the side mirrors can't be that small in the US.......probably a bunch of other regulations that will tweak the concept back to a regular i8 looking model

It has to be watered down.Due to manufacturing costs and safety regulation.It is not a supercar.

You coulda said the i8 was too dramatic when it came out as a concept car at the beginning of the decade yet years later is was releaased as an actual vehicle without many tweaks

The i8 is a completely different car.It was designed to be as aerodynamic as possible and bmw did spend a crazy amount of money to design and to develop the car.It was bmws halo car so bmw had to make it look as futuristic as possible.
The m8 is still going to be a looker though.

The front bumper will need to be redesigned to accommodate a front numberplate.
The front intakes will have to be redesigned.To be more aerodynamic.The front and rear ligh units will have to be tweaked.The rear bumper will have smaller bumper vents and rear reflector lights.
