The new BMW 8 Series will sit at the top of the firm's range and is set to rival the likes of the Bentley Continental GT and Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe

It will be closely related to the 7 Series and has been introduced alongside the X7 and X2 in a bid to claw back sales from arch rival Mercedes-Benz.

Using a redeveloped 4.4-litre petrol V8 engine, the M850i prototype models produce 530PS, while 750Nm of torque is available at 1800rpm

While a low centre of gravity and stiff body will help the 8 Series appeal to enthusiastic drivers, electronically controlled dampers contribute towards an adaptability and comfort that BMW is keen to promote. Wider rear wheels also contribute towards a driver-focussed suspension setup.

By testing the new 8 Series on Welsh roads, the manufacturer says it can obtain customer-relevant characteristics in as close to real-world conditions as possible.
