BMW M8 Gran Coupe 2020.

The 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe is a «charged» version of the BMW 8 Series sedan.
Until recently, the revived BMW family of the eighth series included five models — the usual two-door BMW 8-Series Coupe and BMW 8-Series Convertible, the BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe sedan, and the BMW M8 coupe and convertible.

The missing element is easy to spot — the four-door BMW M8 Gran Coupe, which was unveiled today, 9 October. The novelty has become a kind of hybrid of the classic Gran Coupe and the two-door coupe M8.

The first was borrowed from the body (albeit reinforced), the second — the technology, including the V8 4.4 M TwinPower Turbo power unit. Motor in initial boost of 600 hp and 750 Nm is installed on the base model, a more powerful engine version with a return of 625 hp. and 750 Nm relies on the Ultimate Competition version.

Sales of the new BMW M8 Gran Coupe will start in April 2020, with 400 First Edition limited edition cars entering the market first. Such cars with a special external decor and exclusive finishing should also reach Russia, however, there is no information about the exact dates or the quota for our market.

Standard versions of the model will also be available to Russians, and, most interestingly, prices for them have already been announced. The new BMW M8 Gran Coupe 2020 will cost at least 10,220,000 rubles, its counterpart BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe — 12,050,000 rubles.

Visitors to the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show will be the first to see the new items.

Design and dimensions

The four-door BMW M8 sedans received the decor of the hinged body panels characteristic of all M versions. The new models are equipped with a specially configured bumper with large air intakes, a high-gloss black radiator grille with double slats, aerodynamic slots in the front fenders and elegant, streamlined mirror housings.

The rear is decorated with a small spoiler on the trunk lid and a powerful diffuser with four round exhaust pipes, two on each side. The Competition modification from the «simple» Gran Coupe is distinguished by the black color of the edging of the false radiator and the exterior mirrors.

We will probably not say something else about the appearance of the new «charged» sedans of the 8th series due to the presence of a mass of photographic materials, we will indicate only the dimensions of the cars.

The four-doors turned out to be significantly longer than their brothers with two doors: their wheelbase is 200 mm longer, and their total length is 231 mm. The final figures tell us that the body of the new products fits into the dimensions of 5098x1943x1423 mm. The distance between the axles is 3027 mm, the front and rear tracks are 1626 and 1660 mm.

The interior of the lighters of the M8 Gran Coupe and M8 Competition Gran Coupe has a specific finish with a pronounced «sport» bias.

In the presence of all the relevant paraphernalia — a steering wheel with red M1 / ​​M2 buttons for selecting the driving mode, a red engine start button on the center tunnel, embossed seats with integrated headrests and three-dimensional stitching, an original gear selector with a Drivelogic switch, decorative inserts made of carbon fiber.

The interior upholstery at the «emok» is leather, but for the Competition version there is an optionally available two-tone trim with Alcantara.

In terms of electronic equipment, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe sedans are not much inferior to the recently released crossovers BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M.

At the disposal of cars is adaptive LED optics or advanced Laserlight headlights, a digital cockpit BMW Live Cockpit Professional (12.3-inch device and 10.25- inch media center screen), head-up display, BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, wireless charging, four-zone climate control, power and seat ventilation, heated armrests (center and on the doors), motorized sun blinds for rear windows, Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround sound system with 16 speakers.

The model has countless electronic assistants — of the most sophisticated, we note the active cruise control with Stop & Go function, night vision and an extended Parking Assistant Plus with a bunch of cameras that give any angle of view.

The long wheelbase allowed the developers to equip the new BMW M8 Gran Coupe with a spacious rear row of seats. There are two seats here, but if there is an urgent need, a third passenger can easily fit in the middle.

The second row seats are divided into three sections (proportions 40:20:40), which, when folded down, provide an increase to the basic boot volume of 440 liters. The fifth door comes standard with an electric drive and a «hands-free» opening function.

2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Specifications

The body of the new «em-eighths» is equipped with additional reinforcing elements that add torsional rigidity to the load-bearing frame. At the same time, the roof of the cars is made of lightweight carbon fiber, which helps to reduce weight.

The result is a curb weight of 2,055 kg — 70 kg more than a conventional BMW 8 Series sedan.

Both models — the BMW M8 Gran Coupe and the BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe — hide the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 under the hood. But his settings are different: in the first case, the engine is boosted to 600 hp. and 750 Nm, in the second — up to 625 hp. and 750 Nm.

The increased recoil required the installation of more rigid powertrain mountings on the Competition version.

The engine works in conjunction with the 8-speed «automatic» M Steptronic and all-wheel drive transmission M xDrive. The rear axle is equipped with an Active M.

The initial set of «emok» includes an adaptive suspension with original settings, sports brakes (front calipers six-piston) and 20-inch wheels with tires of different widths (front tires are 275/35 R20, rear — 285/35 R20).

The engine, drive, steering, chassis and braking settings can be controlled separately.

Well, now about the dynamics. The base sedan M8 Gran Coupe accelerates to «hundreds» in 3.3 seconds, the Competition modification — in 3.2 seconds.

Spurt up to 200 km / h for the models takes 11.2 and 11.0 seconds, respectively. The electronic speed limiter for both cars is set at 250 km / h, but it is easy to move it to 305 km / h when paying for the M Driver’s package.
