The BMW 8 Series has undergone final testing on Welsh roads ahead of going on sale in the UK later this year.
The German car maker is reviving the name more than 20 years after the last 8 Series badged model was sold.
The new car is essentially a two-door version of the 7 Series luxury saloon.
It will be sold with a range of engines beginning with the entry level 3.0 litre V6 diesel in the 830d.
There will also be a 4.4 litre V8 petrol with 523bhp and four-wheel drive. A V12 model will join the range later on, although the fastest version will be the M8, which will use a lighter version of the V8 engine tuned to deliver around 600bhp.
The 8 Series will replace the 6 Series coupe, which ceases production soon.
