BMW 8-Series bodykit from Prior Design

The all-new BMW 8-Series is yet to start first deliveries, but that didn’t stop from tuning companies from offering tuning package for the luxury coupe. Prior Design aims to be first one in the list to offer widebody kit for BMW 8-Series. German based tuning company have already released first teaser image of the new package dubbed as PD800. The aero package seems not to body panel of the coupe will remain untouched. PD800 aero package will convert G15 8-Series into an aggressive vehicle thanks to massive fender extensions, redesigned front apron with a big splitter and wider air intakes. It matches the side skirts and has sculpted bonnet with additional air outlets.

The teaser image of the BMW 8-Series also gives us a glimpse of the rear end. We can spot that a boot lid spoiler but there isn’t much else. There is also a sizeable air diffuser which we can assume that is a part of the widebody kit. Just like any other Prior Design creations, PD800 aero package for BMW 8-Series will include an H&R coil-over kit that enables the driver to adjust the car’s ride height. Since, 8-Series now has wider wheel arches; it will be filed by a set of 21 inch PD4 light-alloy wheels from Prior Design.

At this point of time, we don’t know if Prior Design has any power kit up their sleeves, but still BMW 8-Series remains a powerful coupe. Power in the base variant of 8-Series (840d) comes from twin-turbo 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine that offers 315hp and 680 Nm of torque. The hardware helps the luxury coupe to accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds. Range-topping version M850i xDrive is powered with twin-turbo 4.4 liter V8 engine that is rated at 523hp and 750Nm of torque. M850i xDrive is able to accelerate to 62mph in 3.7 seconds.
