BMW M CEO Teases G8x Front/Rear in Isle of Man Green and Sao Paolo Yellow Colors

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This is essentially the first official hard confirmation of the G8x front grilles and should put a lot of the speculation to rest.

These are likely the colors Isle of Man Green and Sao Paolo Yellow (from the known color list).

Even the reveal will probably also be in poor lighting. Seems to be the case with the beaver grille cars.

Is that a big rear spoiler sticking out? Grille at least is less flat/vertical than other pictures.

It also seems to have to M performance exhaust tips and black or CF diffuserX

😤🤬
Wild theory- BMW cut off all incentives for the Euro delivery program a few years back. Naturally, being cost ineffective, people stopped doing ED. Now BMW said since people aren't doing ED, they'll be axing the program.

Is the same thing happening to the M3/M4? A few years from now they'd say the cars just arent selling like they did before & eventually they'll axe them in favor of EVs and SUVs?

Once the initial shock of a significant change wears off I'll bet it ends up looking pretty bad ass....

One thing is for sure. The X drive comp is going to have some Serious street cred

Exactly right. I normally don't find myself agreeing with you too often, but there is little doubt the photographers and graphics guys hate the front of the car too.

I'll wait to see it in person before passing judgment, but I'm afraid the design is polarizing just to draw attention and not a genuine attempt at making an attractive car.

There a few visual points of interest on the rear of the G80:
  1. At first glance, the rear spoiler seems to stick out more than what is typical, even if it is an M Performance spoiler. But as another member above pointed out, it is just the side mirror that blended into the silhouette, creating this illusion.
  2. The diffuser appears to be gloss black so this begs the question of whether or not the diffuser is an M Performance piece or a visual clue of the Competition model at launch. Remember, on the F90 M5, the Competition model has a black diffuser so it's likely the G8x follows this pattern.
  3. The exhaust tips look like they do have a 'sleeve' (i.e., carbon fiber) which may suggest an M Performance Exhaust system.
  4. Lastly, is the roof. The two points that stick out to the left & right of the shark fin antenna caught my attention. I'm not sure if it's just my eyes playing tricks on me, but either those are some very sharp creases on the 'double-bubble' style CF roof or those are vortex generators at the edges of the roof where it meets the rear window.




Update - after reviewing some of the high-resolution photos from the Press Release -
1) The spoiler is indeed the 'standard' size we expect. In the teaser photo, it is the side mirror that protrudes.
2) The rear diffuser is indeed gloss black & still speculated as above to be painted gloss black on the Competition
3) The exhaust tips have black surrounds/sleeves that engulf the tips. Does not appear to be an MPE at this stage.

4) The two points that protrude on the roof from either side of the shark fin antenna actually run across the roof and are 'sculpted' and very defined. This design appears on both the G80 & G82. Whether this was a result of aerodynamics testing is TBD.
