"The Salève Vert paint finish, whose colour appears to change from green to greyish blue in different lights, creates a hugely effective surface composition and teams up with the gold-coloured window graphic, hallmark M gills, gold-coloured brakes, wheel rims and M twin exhaust tailpipes to give the vehicle a head-turning, all-new look, " the press release states.

BMW previews the bold exterior styling and confident stance of a luxurious new 4-door 8-Series model positioned at the very top of its lineup from the latter half of 2019 with the unveiling of the Concept M8 Gran Coupe at this year's Geneva auto show.
"With this auto we want to reach people who are looking for something special and who want to stand out from the crowd". Why they don't just show the actual M8 Gran Coupe, is beyond me, but if it looks anything like the show auto, I don't care. "Here, BMW M is unmistakably taking luxury out of its comfort zone".
