BMW gives us our best look yet at upcoming 8 Series flagship

Later this year will herald the return of a nameplate last seen in the 1990s. The BMW 8 Series is set to be revived as a new flagship of the Bavarian brand's range, and now we've been given the most revealing glimpse yet at how the super-coupe will look.

Camouflaged images reveal a near-production model of the 8 Series being endurance tested at a track in Aprilia, Italy. BMW engineers are seeking to optimise the car's dynamics on track, taking it one step closer to full production.
