The 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe has been revealed ahead of an Australian arrival early next year.
As is now the norm, locally, BMW will offer the M8 Gran Coupe in Competition spec only.
Like the M8 Coupe, the Gran Coupe will be powered by a 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 petrol engine tuned to produce 460kW and 750Nm. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear-biased, xDrive all-wheel drive system.
BMW says the four-door variant matches the Coupe’s 0-100km/h acceleration time of 3.2 seconds.
Standard kit includes a sports exhaust, an active M differential, electronically controlled dampers and electromechanical M Servotronic steering, along with the new M-specific integrated braking system which enables two brake pedal settings to suit specific driving styles and situations.
For those looking for ‘practicality’, the Gran Coupe’s wheelbase is 200mm longer than that of the two-door version which according to BMW allows for “exceptional levels of space in the rear compartment.”
The exterior remains true to the Concept and is distinguished by larger air intakes, M gills on the side panels, aerodynamically-optimised exterior mirrors, a rear spoiler and 20-inch alloy wheels.
On the inside, buyers get M Sport front seats with integrated illuminated M8 badging, bi-colour leather trim, and M-specific readouts for the digital instrument cluster, infotainment screen and head-up display.
BMW Australia has confirmed the M8 Competition Gran Coupe will arrive locally in the second quarter of 2020. Full specifications and pricing will be released closer to the launch date.
