BMW has revealed its 8 Series Gran Coupe, which brings four door practicality to the luxury model’s range.
The latest variant completes the 8 Series line-up alongside the coupe and convertible models, with BMW saying the Gran Coupe is aimed at being an enticing compromise between long-distance comfort and sporty performance.
The wheelbase is 201mm longer than the coupe, giving more interior space.
There will be four versions at launch. The 840i, which uses a 335bhp straight-six-cylinder petrol engine, is available in rear or four-wheel-drive, while the high-performance V8 in the M850i makes 523bhp. A diesel option, badged 840d, is also available with 316bhp. Each variant gets BMW’s eight-speed automatic transmission.
