The Bavarian brand has finally published information about the large 4-door coupe BMW 8 Series. Sales will begin in September of this year, prices start from $ 84,900.

BMW was in no hurry to disclose information about all the representatives of the new flagship family of the 8 Series. That was less than a year ago when the usual coupe was introduced. A few months later we were shown the same car, only in the back of a convertible, followed by a powerful M8. Now BMW introduces the four-door coupe Gran Coupe 2020 model year. It is reported that the production of the latter will be launched in July.

 BMW lengthened the 2-door coupe 8 series by 22.86 cm – everything from the rear of the windshield, which has become more vertical, has a unique new design. The car is also 3.05 cm wider and 5.59 cm longer, the wheelbase has increased by 20.07 cm.

Buyers in the US can count on a 4.4-liter BMW twin-turbocharged V8 under the hood, which develops 523 horsepower (749 Nm) in the M850i ​​xDrive version. BMW electronically limits the maximum speed to 209 km / h when using all-season tires. This figure can be increased to 241 km / h if you put regular tires. The engine will transmit power through an eight-speed Steptronic Sport gearbox to all four wheels.

  The 8 Series Gran Coupe will also receive a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder turbocharged engine that will develop 335 hp (498 Nm). This engine works with rear and all-wheel drive – versions of the BMW 840i and 840i xDrive, respectively. BMW says the V8 Gran Coupe can accelerate to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds, while the rear-wheel drive version does it in 4.9 seconds. AWD AWD version will accelerate 0.3 seconds faster.

Sales of the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe will begin in September. Prices start at $ 84,900 for the 840i Gran Coupe, $ 87,800 for the 840i xDrive Gran Coupe and $ 108,900 for the M850i ​​xDrive.
