Classic Coupé Genes: The study of the M8 Gran Coupe has short overhangs and a long wheelbase.

Long wheelbase, long bonnet, short tail – the proportions of the M8 Gran Coupe are consistent. The window frames are held in gold, as are the kidneys. In the wheel arches, black and gold bicolour rims spread. The duck tail at the rear extends the trunk upwards and provides more downforce on the rear axle. Tinted taillights, deep grooves in the bumper and four golden tailpipes underline the sporty and masculine appearance.

Up to 650 hp in the M8 Gran Coupe possible

The How To Cars illustration shows how the four-door 8 Series 2019 could roll to the dealers.

The Gran Coupe will share the engine portfolio with the 8 Series Coupe. Its temporary top engine is the 530 hp 4.4-liter V8 in the M850i ​​xDrive. The engine comes in its fundamentals from the current M5. The biturbo unit will also be used in the M8. However, it will once again get a significant power boost and ultimately distribute more than 600 horsepower on all four wheels. As in the M5, the driver can switch to pure rear-wheel drive at the touch of a button. If BMW decides to offer the Gran Coupe as M8 Competition, this should make about 650 hp. Although BMW describes the 8 Series as a true sports car, it is also untypically available as a diesel. The four-door version of the 8 Series announces BMW for 2019.
