Several pictures of the 2020 BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe have surfaced online, ahead of its debut later this month.
Moving further back, we can see front fender vents and a rakish windscreen. Those elements carryover from the coupe, but the sedan adopts a longer wheelbase and two rear doors. We can also see aggressive side skirts and a sloping roof which will likely impact rear seat headroom.
The rear end treatment is certainly familiar as the model has slender taillights and a ventilated fascia. Elsewhere, designers installed an integrated rear spoiler and a dual exhaust system which is separated by a diffuser.
The photos only provide a glimpse of the interior, but it should have a three-spoke steering wheel and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. We can also expect metallic accents and a 10.25-inch infotainment system.
Engine options will carryover from the coupe and convertible, so choices should include a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel that produces 316 hp (235 kW / 320 PS) and 501 lb-ft (680 Nm) of torque. Petrol fans will be able to opt for the M850i which has a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 523 hp (390 kW / 530 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.
Later down the road, BMW will introduce the M8 Gran Coupe. It will have a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that develops 592 hp (441 kW / 600 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. We can also expect a Competition variant with 617 hp (460 kW / 625 PS).
The 2020 BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe will be launched in September and more details will be released later this month.
