In March, the first spy photos of the BMW 8 Series Coupe surfaced, giving us a glimpse of what will happen to the biggest Bimmer coupe in the lineup. While huge changes aren’t exactly on the cards for the second-gen model that debuted in 2018, minor updates are underway for the mid-cycle refresh.
Now our spy photographers have spotted the facelift again – more likely somewhere in Germany – but this time the cabin images are included with revealing details.
The pair of interior spy shots reveal a bigger infotainment screen, but that’s about the update we can discern. We expect the infotainment to contain the latest version of BMW iDrive.
As for the exterior, there are two sets of prototypes spotted – one in white and the other in green paint. The camouflage on both models is still concentrated in the front and back, which tells us that most of the updates will be around these areas. Subtle changes are expected on the grille, but thankfully no massive lungs here … yet.
The bumpers, on the other hand, should be redesigned to keep the car cool, while the headlights seem slightly narrower than the current model. The taillights also appear to have updated graphics.
Under the hood, the next facelift of the 8 Series Coupe is expected to take over existing powertrain options, meaning that turbocharged six-cylinder gasoline and diesel choices are coming. The 4.4-liter V8 mill is also expected to arrive.
The launch date for the new 8 Series Coupé is not set at this point, but we expect a debut in the early months of 2022. The BMW M8, on the other hand, could arrive later.
