BMW just relaunched the BMW 8-series after a long hiatus. The German auto manufacturer just announced that intends to come up with a new range of the much beloved svelte range-topper series. The 8-Series convertible and the coupe are already out and pictures of the M8 coupe were leaked online. People have reported seeing the 8-Series Gran Coupe being road tested on public roads. The M8 Gran Coupe, which is its more powerful counterpart has also been spied doing road tests as well. While the M8s have coupe in their name, they are not really coupes in the real sense of the word.
The M8 Gran Coupe is more of fastback sedan that comes with a hatch. The car is expected to be officially launched in late 2019 or early 2020 and is expected to hit the market shortly after the unveiling. The M8 will replace the M6 Gran Coupe and will be squaring off against the likes of Porsche Panamera, Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, and the Audi RS 7.
The Sporty 2020 M8 Gran Coupe with its sporty curves and distinctive roar spotted while testing at The Nurburgring. A preview of the M8 Gran Coupe Concept that came out last year has the super sedan sitting wide and low, with massive air intakes that feed the turbocharged powertrain under the hood.
This is one of the most powerful powertrains in the class with 550 pound-feet of torque, 600 horsepower from a 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. The Competition Spec should go up a notch. It comes with a sophisticated M division developed all-wheel drive wheel system, which is controlled through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The large wheel will likely have big brakes and carbon ceramic rotors ate the most likely option. The interior of the M8 Gran Coupe comes with all standard BMW features, though the M department has introduced a sporty twist to the car. We expect high tech M gear selector, an M steering wheel, sporty seats, a lot of M badges, and the round gauge cluster design that we have grown used to.
