It is highly expected that when the sleek M8 Gran Coupe is finally made available later this year, it will come in all of the 8-series’ body styles, including two-door coupe and convertible, in addition to the four-door concept. It is also expected that it will be be powered by a version of the M5’s twin-turbo V-8 that makes at least 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque.
It should have an eight-speed automatic sending all that power to a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system. The 4.4-liter V-8 engine is also won by the M850i model.
From the look of things,the M8 Gran Coupe will make things rather interesting in the four-door coupe niche particularly and spectaculary because BMW will have a rival for the AMG and RS versions of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7, respectively. The concept car provides a few valuable hints as to what to expect from the production model, but most technical specifications are still a secret.
Until more data becomes available, let’s have a closer look at what we already know about the upcoming M8 Gran Coupe. As at this stage, there is no pricing information yet, but the M8 Gran Coupe shouldn’t cost much more than the M6 Gran Coupe which priced at $119,800.
It is thus safe to say that the M8 Gran Coupe could fetch around $125,000. This would make it not only the most expensive model in the M lineup, but also more expensive than the competition. It is, after all, a luxurious BMW!
