BMW has just revealed its first-ever BMW M8 Gran Coupe and M8 Competition Gran Coupe. The flagship vehicle is the combination of styling, design, luxury and performance in a sizeable four-door package.
Fifty of the 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe First Edition will make it to the US from March 2020, based on the Competition trim. It’ll be finished in Individual Diamant Green Metallic with GOLDBRONZE trim, while inside there’ll be BMW Individual Ivory White/Tartufo Full Merino leather with contrasting Individual Piano Black trim. GOLDBRONZE 20-inch forged M Star-Spoke wheels will be included. Only 400 will be made worldwide.
Powering the the Gran Coupe is a 4.4-liter V-8 TwinPower turbo engine that puts outs 600 horsepower (617 if Competition package) that’s fixed with an 8-speed M STEPTRONIC Transmission — pushing this car from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds. The exterior sees many signature M components like a double-bar kidney grille, M Sports exhaust with quad-10cm exhaust tips and customizable sound modes, large carbon ceramic brakes, and 20” M forged wheels.
