2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe revealed

    Published On Oct 12, 2019 07:00:00 AM


    Four-door iteration of the M8 uses a 4.4-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine that produces 600hp as standard and 625hp in Competition form.

    BMW's M car portfolio has been further extended by the introduction of the M8 Gran Coupé. The new M8 Gran Coupé sits alongside the two-doorM8 Coupé and Convertiblemodels and is pegged as a rival to the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-Door Coupe. The new BMW is powered by the same 4.4-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 as the two-door models, with identical outputs: 600hp in the standard model and 625hp in the Competition form.

    Despite the extra 200mm added to the wheelbase to accommodate the rear doors, BMW claims the same 0-100kph time – 3.3sec for the base car and 3.2sec for the Competition. The top speed can be increased from 250kph to 306kph, if the optional M Driver’s Package is specified.

    Like the Coupe, the Gran Coupe gets a variable all-wheel-drive system and an Active M differential. Various modes allow the selection of a more rear-biased setup, and turning everything off allows the M8 Gran Coupe to become an exclusive rear-wheel-drive.

    BMW has not confirmed whether it will bring the M8 Grand Coupe to our market or not, but the standard 8 Series Gran Coupe is expected to make its way to India by mid-2020, and the 840i is expected to be priced from Rs 1.40 crore.

    The carmaker recently launched the M5 Competition in Indiastarting at Rs 1.55 crore (ex-showroom, pan-India).
