BMW M8 Gran Coupe: what would you like to read next?
The BMW M8 Gran Coupe is a larger, more practical version of the M8 Coupe that comes with the same 625hp engine, but gets a more practical four-door body with a roomier boot and four seats.
To help you tell it apart from the standard BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe, it gets more aggressive bumpers, four large exhaust pipes, new alloy wheels and plenty of optional carbon fibre details. Inside, you get lashings of leather trim on the doors, dashboard and seats, and the same high-tech infotainment system and digital driver’s display as in the 8 Series.
If you want to bring three friends along to enjoy a 625hp ride, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe is one of the only cars for the job.
Under the BMW M8 Gran Coupe’s bonnet, you’ll find a 625hp version of the twin-turbo V8 in the M850i. This unit comes with plenty of parts shared with the BMW M5 Competition, including a grippy four-wheel-drive system that’ll blast the M8 Gran Coupe from 0-60mph in less than four seconds.
You can also choose to send all the engine’s power to the rear wheels only – if you fancy power sliding your four-seat GT car around a racetrack, for instance.
