When it was announced, BMW’s revolutionary new M8 performance coupe definitely made waves. And while they were mostly positive, some folks were disappointed that the large touring car only came in a two-door format. Well, BMW has since rectified that with the announcement of the M8 Gran Coupe. And guess what: it’s coming to the USA.
Much of this new four-door version is the same as its two-door brethren — including a Competition trim powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine capable of pumping out up to 625 horsepower, 553 ft-lb of torque, and a top speed of 190mph. The interior follows a similar pattern — although the plush leather and accents have been expanded upon a bit, courtesy of two more doors and a bit more legroom. For folks who liked the big, bold M8 but were hoping for a sedan option, the M8 Gran Coupe and M8 Competition Gran Coupe will hit dealerships early next year starting at $130,000.
