BMW Adds The 553HP 4-Door Gran Coupe To Its 8 Series Lineup

It was only a year ago that BMW announced they were reviving their 8 Series with a powerful, sport-focused two-door. Now, they’re expanding that lineup with an even bigger, more beautiful four-door called the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe.

Although the styling is clearly shared between the two vehicles, this four-door version is a good deal larger than its two-door little brother — measuring up with a body that’s over 9-inches longer, 1.2-inches wider, 2.4-inches taller, and with a wheelbase that’s lengthened by 8-inches. That works out to create a larger interior that’s a good deal more comfortable, but still features all the same styling, amenities, and built-in tech (like driver assistance systems). And while there is a quartet of trim options, our favorite is certainly the range-topping M850i xDrive — which comes with a powerful V8 powerplant good for 553-horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. There’s no word yet on a release, but we expect to see the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe hit dealerships toward the end of the year.
