There are three 2023 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe trim levels to choose from. The lineup kicks off with the RWD 840i and extends to the 840i xDrive and M850i xDrive. Both 840i models are powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine producing 335 horsepower.
All models get standard LED headlights, a panoramic moonroof, remote engine start, keyless entry, soft-close automatic doors, and a 12.3-inch central infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Driver assistance features include lane departure warning, frontal collision warning, and automatic city collision mitigation.
The M850i xDrive is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine producing 523 hp and includes a sport exhaust system, an M Sport differential, and M Sport brakes with blue calipers.
840i and 840i xDrive models are available with Driving Assistance Package, which is priced at only $100.

A further upgrade to the Driving Assistance Professional package is priced at $,1700, but requires the $100 Driving Assistance bundle to be selected too. This adds all those goodies plus radar-based assistance systems in the form of Active Driving Assistant Pro and traffic jam assistant too.
