The U.K. premiere of the BMW Concept 8 Series will be at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Unveiled at this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, the concept serves as a taster for the new BMW 8 Series Coupe, which launches in 2018. Also seen in the U.K. for the first time will be new BMW M4 CS, which will take to the hill for the supercar hill climb, whilst the Gordon Murray-designed Brabham-BMW BT52 and the Le Mans-winning BMW V12 LMR will steer their way up Goodwood's famous 1.9km course.

The BMW Concept 8 Series will be shown alongside the 19th vehicle of BMW's Art Car Collection - the BMW M6 GTLM racecar - as designed by the American master of conceptual art, John Baldessari. Visitors to the festival will be able to see both cars in the Stable Yard, a unique area at Goodwood (once again dedicated to BMW), which will also showcase the new and exclusive BMW i8 Memphis Style and the range-topping M760Li xDrive V12.

Seen in action for the first time in the U.K. will be a very special model from BMW M - the new high-performance BMW M4 CS. The BMW M4 CS continues a decades-long tradition of successful M special editions, which began in 1988 with the BMW E30 M3 Evolution. With a host of innovative M technologies and efficient, lightweight carbon fibre components, the new BMW M4 CS can complete the legendary Nordschleife in just 7:38 minutes. The Goodwood Festival of Speed is being held from 29th June to 2nd July 2017.
