BMW Presents the Almighty M8 Gran Coupé

The all-new 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupé and Gran Coupé Competition were unveiled by the carmaker, pumping up to 617 hp.

The BMW family just grew a little more, again. This time, the German manufacturer adds two new cars to its lineup, the 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupé and Gran Coupé Competition.

Both of these performance sedans are powered by the 4.4-liter S63 M TwinPower Turbo V8. The M8 Gran Coupé produces 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque while the Competition reaches 617 hp and 553 lb-ft. The former will reach 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds while the latter will hit the same speed in 0.1 seconds less at 3.2.

The top speed is limited to 250 km/h but can be increased to 305 km/h with the optional M Driver’s Package. This optional package adds an invitation to M School driver training at either the Spartanburg, SC or Thermal, CA BMW Performance Center driving schools.

The 2020 M8 Gran Coupé has a wheelbase 200 mm longer than the M8 Coupé, it’s also 231 mm longer, 35.5 mm wider and 73.6 mm taller. Even though it’s bigger, the car tips the scale at only 85 kg more.

A new single setup button is now featured in the M8 Gran Coupé. The button in the center console enables control over the engine, suspension, steering, xDrive settings and even the integrated braking system.

In Canada, we will be getting the BMW M8 Gran Coupé First Edition. The limited-edition model will feature an Individual Aurora Green Metallic exterior paint, as well as the BMW Kidney grille, side air breather trim, door mirror and window-surround trim, exterior badging and door sill plates who will be finished in GoldBronze. The exclusive 20-inch Forged M Star-Spoke wheels will also be finished in GoldBronze.

In the cabin, the First Edition will also get the Individual treatment with the BMW Individual Ivory White/Tartufo Full Merino leather. Furthermore, an Individual Piano Black trim with a “First Edition 1/400” inscription on the center console door will be featured inside.

The 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupé and Gran Coupé Competition are launching in Canada in January 2020. No pricing was announced yet for Canada.
