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.
