Paragon 1:64 BMW M8 Coupe, Donington Gray

The second-generation of the BMW 8 Series consists of the BMW G14 (convertible version), BMW G15 (two-door coupe version) grand tourers and BMW G16 (four-door "Gran Coupe" fastback sedan version) executive car. The G14/G15/G16 generation has been in production since 2018, and is often collectively referred to as the G15.

It is the successor to the BMW 6 Series range and marks the return of the BMW 8 Series nameplate after nearly two decades.

The G15 is powered by turbocharged six-cylinder petrol, six-cylinder diesel and V8 petrol engines. All models have all-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The M8 models (designated F91/F92/F93) were unveiled in 2019 and are powered by the twin-turbocharged BMW S63 V8 petrol engine.

The 8 Series is based on the BMW Concept 8 Series that debuted at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, and featured a new design language and iteration of the iDrive system. The production version was officially unveiled at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 15, 2018. The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupé was later introduced at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, and is a high-performance four-door variant of the 8 Series which was unveiled in June 2019.

The 8 Series utilises a double-wishbone front suspension and rear multi-link suspension. The car uses BMW's Carbon Core technology, integrating carbon-fibre within its chassis. GPS navigation data is used for the 8-speed automatic transmission to predict upshifts or downshifts when approaching a junction, and cameras along with sensors are utilised to determine appropriate shutdowns for the engine start-stop system.

The convertible version of the 8 Series (G14) was launched in November 2018. The convertible features a folding cloth roof that operates in 15 seconds and can function up to 50 km/h (31 mph). Changes over the coupé include; new cross struts, new panels for the underbody and aluminium roll over bars for added safety. Initial models for the convertible include the M850i xDrive and 840d xDrive. The convertible weighs an additional 100 kg (220 lb) more than the coupé.

Sales of the 8 Series commenced in November 2018.

The Gran Coupé version of the 8 Series was announced in June 2019 and went on sale in September 2019. It has the same powertrains as the coupé and convertible, but it is the first 8 Series available with a six-cylinder engine for the United States.
