THE NEW 2020 BMW M8 GRAN COUPE AND M8 GRAN COUPE COMPETITION
TDN NEWS: THE NEW 2020 BMW M8 GRAN COUPE AND M8 GRAN COUPE COMPETITION
BMW and M GmbH are proud to announce the newest edition to the M8 family, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe and M8 Gran Coupe Competition.
The Gran Coupe rides on a chassis and body which is 9.1-inches longer, 1.4-inches wider, 2.3-inches taller and with an increased 7.9-inch wheelbase over the M8 Coupe, adding extra stability, comfort and rear interior space without affecting the car’s track-capable agility.
Interior space benefits greatly over that of that of the Coupe with rear shoulder room increasing by 7.7-inches, rear legroom increasing by 7.1-inches and rear headroom increasing by 3.5-inches. The greater interior dimensions mean only a modest 185-pound increase in curb weight.
This means that the uncompromised near-supercar levels of performance and luxury can be more easily shared with family and friends.
BMW M8 Gran Coupe First Edition
The M8 Gran Coupe First Edition, available with 50 units for the U.S. market, will usher in the arrival of the M8 Gran Coupe and Competition models.
Based on the Competition model, the First Edition cars will be finished in Individual Diamant Green Metallic, a color exclusive to this limited edition model. The BMW Kidney grille, side air breather trim, door mirror and window-surround trim, exterior badging and door sill plates are finished in GOLDBRONZE, mirroring the M8 Gran Coupe Concept vehicle.
The interior is finished in BMW Individual Ivory White/Tartufo Full Merino leather and features Individual Piano Black trim with a “First Edition 1/400” on the center console door.
Exclusive 20-inch Forged M Star-Spoke wheels finished in GOLDBRONZE help set the First Edition cars apart.
Production for the limited U.S. M8 Gran Coupe First Edition cars to begin in March 2020.
