BMW unveils new M8 Gran Coupe in Los AngelesNovember 21, 2019
New in the footsteps of the M8 Coupe and Convertible.
The novelty is driven by a 4.4-liter V8 with two turbines, which develops 592 hp. power and 750 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission, which transfers power to the all-wheel drive system. This allows the new product to accelerate to 100 km / h in 3.3 seconds, and the maximum speed is 305 km / h with the optional M Driver package.
Customers who want to increase productivity can order the M8 Competition Gran Coupe. It is equipped with a modernized engine that develops 616 hp. power and 750 Nm of torque.
Of course, performance improvements do not end there, since the M8 received a front axle with a double wishbone, which has “specially designed slewing bearings, torque arms and control levers”. There is also a high-performance brake system and optional carbon-ceramic brakes.
In terms of design, the front end resembles a coupe and convertible. As a result, the model has a black grille, which is located above the aggressive air intakes. Sporty style continues on as the Gran Coupe has aerodynamic mirrors, a carbon-fiber plastic roof and 20-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, there are M sport seats, M leather steering wheel and a unique gear selector. The model also features a 12.3-inch digital dashboard, 10.25-inch infotainment system and carbon fiber trim.
Customers looking for something even more exclusive can purchase the M8 Gran Coupe First Edition. Production will be limited to 400 units – 50 of them will go to the United States. The car in this version is equipped with a metallic shade of BMW Individual Aurora Diamond Green with accents of gold bronze. The model also has unique wheels, special door sills and Taruma Brown Merino leather in the interior.
