You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

I have received confirmation from a source at BMW that the car will be almost identical to this in production.

Is it just me or does the rear look like the FT-1, the rear to mid section a Tesla, and the front just looks awesome. Either way, I love this car!

Yikes...that rear end. Another mess IMO. The front 5/6 of the car look good to me.

That startup video looks like a fake concept. There's a lot of very similar key fob concepts floating around Instagram that are all fake but look very similar but are confirmed as CGI concepts

Gorgeous right up until I saw "Ass End."
Did a different team design the front vs. the rear of this car?

Is it just me or the anyone else also felt that the thumbnail view of the left back end of car looks like it's been in an accident! Like if someone hit the bumper and it's all caved in sort of look.
Front end looks amazing!

The production car will have some of the more extreme elements toned down.
The 8 Gran Coupe will be introduced in Summer 2019.

Looks very aggressive. Are they planning on adding a multi-piston rear caliper?

* because fans love to be teased by fake tech..

hopefully most of the " extreme toning down " happens in the badonkadonk area..
