Woo.. new BMW 8-series coupe ? (MB CLS competition)

"BMW is planning a four-door coupe to compete with the Mercedes CLS-Class, according to the latest issue of Germany's AutoBild magazine. Unlike the CLS, this car will have suicide doors, according to the report. The car has no B-pillar, and is reminiscent of the 1990s BMW 8-Series. In fact, we suspect the only logical nameplate to use for this project would be 8-Series. We have yet to see the full article, so we're not sure when the magazine reckons this "sensational" car will be available."

Very nice

I remember when I was little driving around with my dad, whenever we would see an 8 he would always say how much he loved it and how he wanted one

Why are they called suicide doors? Poor side-crash ratings?

They should call it the 9, not the 8. The 8 is a two door.
