BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe revealed
BMW has released pictures of its new 8 Series Gran Coupe.
A rival to the Porsche Panamera, Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS, the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe is a four-door version of the 8 Series Coupe.
At 5082mm long, the 8 Series Gran Coupe is 201mm longer than the standard 8 Series, and 30mm wider.
The initial engine line-up includes two petrols and one diesel. The six-cylinder petrol used in the 840i has 340PS and 500Nm of torque, taking it to 62mph in 5.2 seconds.
The M850i xDrive uses a V8 petrol engine producing 530PS and 750Nm of torque, covering 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds.
For those wanting a diesel engine, the 840d xDrive produces 320PS and 680Nm of torque, accelerating to 62mph in 5.1 seconds. Top speed on engines is limited to 155mph.
Lightweight materials have been used to keep the weight down, meaning it weighs just 70kg more than the Coupe.
Inside looks largely the same as the 8 Series Coupe, meaning there's a 10.25-inch infotainment screen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel.
Prices start at £69,340 for the 840i, while the 840d costs £73,915. The range-topping M850i xDrive is priced from £97,720.
