Not too long ago, BMW revealed the all-new 8-Series coupe. This means it will be serving as the brands' flagship, big body coupe. At least until the all-new M8 arrives.

It's just a matter of time at this point.

This already controversial vehicle is going to be an interesting one to watch for the blue and white. That's because it's expected to deliver an unbelievable driving experience but it also looks rather generic. This is a departure from the first-gen 8-Series that was radical for its time whereas this all-new 8'er looks like an evolved 6-Series.

It will just set you back $111,900* smackers.

*This price does not include title, taxes and fees.

In a world where cars like the all-new Lexus LC, Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and Porsche 911 exist, the 8-Series is going to have to be one helluva piece of kit to nab those sales. That said, we've got to ask: Would YOU write that six figure check for the all-new 8-Series?
