A four-door sports car has been added to the new BMW 8 Series range. With its standalone body concept, plus powertrain and chassis technology designed squarely to engender supreme dynamic ability, the new
BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe embodies a brand of sporting flair unique in the luxury segment. Joining the BMW 8 Series Coupe and BMW 8 Series Convertible as the third model in the 8 Series range, the Gran Coupe has a character all of its own, combining smile-inducing performance and design shaped by dynamism and elegance with significantly increased spaciousness for passengers in the rear seats. Meanwhile, exclusive equipment features and the latest innovations in the areas of control/operation, driver assistance and connectivity represent a case study in modern luxury.
The new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe is the only model in its segment derived directly from a two-door sports car. Its resultant dynamic potential, plus a longer wheelbase and model-specific chassis tuning, create an unmistakable balance between sports performance and ride comfort. All of which means 8 Series Gran Coupe customers can look forward to high levels of everyday practicality and mile-covering ability. Four model variants are available from launch. The BMW M850i xDrive Gran Coupe (fuel consumption combined: 10.0 – 9.9 l/100 km [28.2 – 28.5 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 229 – 226 g/km*) is powered by a V8 petrol engine which delivers its 390 kW/530 hp in imposing style. The BMW 840d xDrive Gran Coupe (fuel consumption combined: 6.3 – 6.2 l/100 km [44.8 – 45.6 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 166 – 162 g/km*) underscores the four-door model’s qualities as a consummate long-distance machine with its 235 kW/320 hp six- cylinder in-line diesel engine. And the BMW 840i Gran Coupe (fuel consumption combined: 7.5 – 7.4 l/100 km [37.7 – 38.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 170 – 168 g/km*) and BMW 840i xDrive Gran Coupe (fuel consumption combined: 7.8 – 7.7 l/100 km [36.2 – 36.7 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 179 – 176 g/km*) enjoy the services of a high-revving six-cylinder in-line petrol engine with maximum output of 250 kW/340 hp.
The world premiere of the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe will be one of the highlights of the inaugural BMW Group #NEXTGen event in Munich. The worldwide launch of the new car will commence just a few months later, in September 2019.
