by on May.11, 2017

BMW offers a tease of the concept 8-Series coupe it will unveil in Italy later this month.

Nearly 20 years after BMW pulled its flagship model from the market, the Bavarian automaker is set to bring the 8-Series back to life.

A teaser image of the new 2018 BMW 8-Series was released today, accompanied by a tweet from CEO Harald Krueger who said, “The next step of our product offensive is taking shape. A glimpse of the new BMW 8-Series Coupe.”

Product News!

Expected to carry a price tag in the 150,000 euros, or roughly $165,000, range, the return of the 8-Series could mark a shake-up in the BMW product family, essentially upgrading and replacing the current 6-Series family. In its new form, the coupe would go up directly against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe.

For 2011, the Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 features a bigger, more power engine, revised interior and exterior styling and an upgraded suspension.

The news coming out of Chrysler HQ in Auburn Hills is almost relentless these days. There are new engines, completely new SUVs and crossovers and revamped sedans.

Add to the mix a new Dodge Challenger SRT8 with a huge power infusion.

While Dodge has already announced that the base 250-horsepower V-6 will be replaced by a 305-horsepower version of the new Pentastar V-6, it hadn’t said anything about the Challenger’s other engines. Dodge still hasn’t announced numbers for the R/T, but it is expected to maintain its 5.7-liter Hemi, but it will likely make slightly more power.
