The new 4-door BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé, seen here as the optional M Performance model in the dramatic Stormy Bay finish, is bringing new levels of versatility to BMW’s luxury class. With clearly evolved proportions that offer generous interior space and with this a sense of extended luxury, it has still maintained its aggressive yet refined demeanor. Add to this BMW’s breathtaking range of TwinPower Turbo engines, and this elegant racer has something for everyone.
From the sculptured bonnet with the exclusive kidney grille and slim BMW Icon Adaptive LED headlights (BMW Laserlights optional) to the new integrated side mirrors, the BMW 8 Gran Coupè feel majestic in every detail. Also catching your eye is the glass roof, which flows elegantly via the frameless rear window into the muscular rear. Complementing this are wider shoulder arches, trapezoidal tailpipes and flat LED tail lights that wrap around the sides.
The TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine unleashes a sound experience that will raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Delivering 530hp with a maximum torque of 750Nm, it goes from 0 to 62mph in just 3.9 seconds. This raw potential is harnessed by Adaptive M Suspension, an M Sport differential, Integral Active Steering and the intelligent all-wheel drive system, BMW xDrive.
Extravagance can be felt in every aspect of the driving experience, with multifunction M Sport seats in Extended Merino leather, optional Bowers and Wilkins sound system, a beautiful CraftedClarity Glass Application, and immersive ambient lighting settings. Discover a driving experience inspired by the senses.
Thanks to the extended wheelbase, rear seat passengers are able to enjoy the full measure of BMW luxury. From the comfort of the beautifully crafted one-piece heated seats, which is complemented with an extended centre console, four-zone air-conditioning and an optional Panoramic glass roof, everyone enjoys a first class experience.
Luxury driving is pushing into a new and more evolved digital space thanks to the latest Operating System 7.0, BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, and the new BMW Live Cockpit Professional with Head-up Display, which all come as standard. Adding to the driver-centric controls are the stunning 10.25" touchscreen information display and fully digital 12.3" instrument cluster.
Performance and practicality have never looked so good together. The blistering power of BMW M TwinTurbo Power 8-Cylinder engine with xDrive is matched with M Sport differential and M Sport brakes to deliver a scintillating experience. Other high-performance components include the Enhanced Cooling package and Sports Exhaust System. Add even more prestige with stunning M exterior trims in Cerium Grey and 20” M Sport light alloy wheels.
