BMW wasted no time expanding the 8 Series lineup. Having unveiled the new two-door as a coupe and convertible it quickly unveiled hi-po variants in the shape of the M8 Coupe and M8 Competition. But it isn’t done yet. Later this year, the Bavarian carmaker will unleash the 8 Series Gran Coupe and performance-focused M8 Gran Coupe.
Essentially a four-door version of the M8 Coupe, the 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe will come powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. The extra two doors will add weight to the car, but we expect a 0-62 mph time in the region of 3.3 seconds, dropping to 3.2 seconds in Competition spec. A 155-mph limited top speed will be standard with an optional M-Driver’s package upping that to 189 mph.
A carbon-fiber roof, M badges and sports exhaust with quad tailpipes will set the M8 Gran Coupe apart from the standard 8 Series Gran Coupe, while the interior will be typically lux with leather upholstery and a 10.25-inch infotainment system.
Pricing has yet to be announced, but expect a price in the region of $140,000.
