2020 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe Teased, Debuts Next Month

BMW has released the first teaser images of the 2020 8-Series Gran Coupe.

Set to be unveiled next month, the 8-Series Gran Coupe is being billed as a “four-door sports car of consummate elegance.”

The company was tight-lipped on specifics, but said the model will have “athletic proportions and dynamically flowing lines [that] come together to create an aura of sporting exclusivity.” The automaker went on to say the car will have an extended wheelbase that helps to create “spacious rear compartment” which epitomizes modern luxury. BMW also suggested the suspension has been modified to deliver “enhanced ride comfort” compared to the coupe and convertible.

While the teaser images aren’t very revealing, previous spy photos have shown the 8-Series Gran Coupe will have a familiar front fascia and a long hood. Bigger changes occur aft of the A-pillar as the model has a long sloping roof and two rear doors. Despite this, the flowing bodywork carries over and the sedan retains the coupe’s muscular rear fenders.

The interior should largely carryover and this means we can expect a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment system. Drivers can also expect to find a familiar center console, a three-spoke steering wheel and tasteful metallic accents.

BMW declined to mention performance specifications, but we can expect an assortment of familiar engines. As a result, there should be an 840d which has a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel that produces 316 hp (235 kW / 320 PS) and 501 lb-ft (680 Nm) of torque. There should also be a high-performance M850i with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 cranking out 523 hp (390 kW / 530 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. Eventually, there will be an M8 Gran Coupe which could have around 625 PS (460 kW / 617 hp).

Following its debut in late June, the 8-Series Gran Coupe will be launched in September.

    From what we’ve seen, I think it’ll look better than the two door. The shape looks proportional, and I would say it’s a good replacement to the 6 Series gran coupe.

    • Zandit75

      And that’s the rub, it shouldn’t be called the 8 Series.

      • MarketAndChurch

        …it shouldn’t be called the 8 Series.

        …or have the excuse that that name now gives them to charge $20,000 more for what is essentially the next-gen 4-dr 6-series gran coupe.

    And now we wait for the M8 versions.

      Because Mercedes is petty like that.

  • FordMopar

    WTF is this? A teaser for a car we all have seen already but two extra doors?? Laughable

    • Yilmaz Yasar

      what you waiting for. two or three extra tires ? this is 4 door version of coupe.. of course they will ad just two doors

      • no25

        some people just want to find something to complain about. this guys complains on almost every post. just ignore him. lol

        • FordMopar

          Wow, lots of people complain too. Car companies don’t do anything right. Yes I would call out Ford and FCA on something dumb despite my screename. Don’t act like car companies are perfect and excel on everything. This teaser is wasteful. It’s two extra doors on a car we already seen.

      • FordMopar

        No, it’s a nice looking car. Better than 3 and 5 series. We know what the 8-series coupe looks like already. So what’s the point of this teaser? It’s two extra doors. Just release it to dealers and make announcement.

          My thoughts too. Nixed the Wrapping BMW.

    This will be a pretty sweet ride! I think it’ll be better looking than the 2 door as well.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I think it will look a little better than the Arteon. Maybe not as good as the Panamera, but on par with the AMG 4dr if not a little behind it.

  • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Although, the 8-series, Grand Coupè, that is, will not feature any new methods in styling specifically compared to the 6-series Grand Coupè; however, the technology should address tech-savvy consumers. Shall Mercedes-Benz and Audi become concerned? I think not.
