Prior Design Cooking Aggressive Widebody Kit For 2019 BMW 8 Series

With the all-new BMW 8 Series Coupe fast approaching its first deliveries, the race is on for building the first tuning package for this brand new luxury coupe.

Prior Design aims to be one of the first aftermarket companies to release an 8 Series wide-body kit. The German firm has already dropped a teaser image of its PD800 aero package and it looks like no body panel of the donor car will remain untouched.

The tuning pack will make the G15 8 Series look more aggressive courtesy of the massive fender extensions, redesigned front apron with a big splitter and wider air intakes, matching side skirts and a sculpted bonnet with additional air outlets.

As for the rear end, the teaser image allows us to spot a boot lid spoiler but not much else. We can only guess a sizable air diffuser is also part of the body kit.

As with most of its creations, Prior Design’s PD800 tuning kit for the 8 Series will feature an H&R coil-over kit that enables the driver to adjust the car’s ride height. The tuner will also throw in a set of 21-inch PD4 light-alloy wheels to fill those wider wheel arches.

We don’t know whether a power kit is also in the pipeline. Even if it isn’t, the BMW 8 Series offers plenty of performance straight from the factory, as the base 840d xDrive makes 320 PS (316 hp), enabling it to go from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.9 seconds.

As for the current range-topper, the M850i xDrive, it offers 530 PS (523 hp) and it can pull off the same sprint in just 3.7 seconds.
