BMW X8 gets executed | Based on recent spy photos and insider information.

Since the X7 concept debuted in 2017, the BMW X8 has been in the works


The BMW X8 has been in the works since the X7 concept was revealed in 2017. Since then, a number of spy shots of the camouflaged car have given us an idea of what that product may look like.

The digital impression, created by Kolesa.ru, depicts the rather drastic front-end depicted by a number of covered test units that have been spotted testing in recent days.

According to the Russian publication, while many people expected the BMW X8 to be a coupe companion to the X7, recent investigations indicate that it will be something different.


The unusual silhouette of the BMW X8 will clash with the coupe SUV shapes.


The BMW X8's unusual silhouette will be at odds with the coupe SUV shapes we've seen so far from the brand, such as the X4 and X6. Instead, it is expected to be more like a traditional SUV, with a slightly lower roofline and a short D-pillar.

In terms of grille size, we can expect a very large design that almost dwarfs the one on the current X7. This will be supplemented by a dynamic two-step headlamp design that includes a slim LED cluster along the bonnet line and a larger unit dividing the grille.

This will be supplemented by a foglamp cluster installed on the lower end of the bumper.

Things could be just as dramatic in the back as they are in the front. The BMW X8 is expected to have a slim taillamp unit similar to the X6, but this will be somewhat drowned out by the vertically stacked hexagonal tailpipes.

The license plate holder will be placed closer to the bottom of the bumper, however the BMW X8 is expected to be officially unveiled sometime next year.
