BMW has dropped a teaser for the forthcoming 8 Series Gran Coupe which is expected to be revealed in June 2019.
We recently sampled the 8 Series Coupe at its local launch in M850i guise and came away impressed with the overall product and of course, its 390 kW/750 Nm 4.4-litre V8 engine. The 8 Series Convertible was also introduced earlier this year and now our attention shifts to the 4-door 8 Series Gran Coupe.
We have seen spy shots of the 8 Series Gran Coupe testing at the Nurburgring but now BMW has released a teaser image and has confirmed that the latest 8 will make its world premiere at the BMW NextGen event to be held in Munich on 25-27 June 2019 before being launched worldwide in September this year.
You can expect high levels of luxury and technology inside the 8 Series Gran Coupe and rear passengers will have ample space thanks to an extended wheelbase and it will employ the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine as its coupe sibling and mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission in conjunction with all-wheel drive.
The highly-anticipated M8 Gran Coupe, which was shown in concept form at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, is currently in development and it will top the 8 Series range when it arrives in 2020.
We will keep you informed as soon as more information becomes available.
