That all changed a few years ago when he decided to remedy the situation with the street rod you see here.

The 2019 BMW 8 Series coupe makes 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque from its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8. This engine works in tandem with an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system that has a rear-wheel bias. BMW claims it can hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.

The sports coupe employs a number of lightweight materials to keep its curb weight down to 4,478 pounds. Steel, plastic, aluminum, and carbon fiber are used throughout the body, while the roof, doors, hood, front firewall, and supporting structures are made of aluminum. The roof is also available in carbon-fiber reinforced plastic, the first for a series-production BMW model.

The BMW 8 Series coupe enters production alongside the 5 Series and 7 Series. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

Even so, there's still some newness to be found on the edges of the show.

There aren't many, so we compiled the entire concept showfield here.
