2020 BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe Looks Stunning In New Photos

Several pictures of the 2020 BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe have surfaced online, ahead of its debut later this month.

Posted by Auto Express and BMW Blog, the images reveal the upcoming sedan will feature a familiar front fascia with a wide twin kidney grille that is flanked by slender headlights.

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.

    7 series with sportier looks and civilised front fascia

  • Daniela Wolf

    Still not a SSC, rather take a nice R8.^^

  • filetx

    looks way better than the coupe

  • so much better looking than the coupé.

  • MayTheBestCarWin05

    Best looking car BMW has put out in yeeeeeaaaarrrrs

  • Nastinupe1911

    That car is going to be a hoot to drive. I wonder how much trunk space it will have. My A7 has loads of space, which kind of won me over. I like the AMG GT 4 Door, Panamera and 8 Series GC, but I don’t want to compromise trunk space.

  • StrangerGP

    Previous 6 series Gran Coupe looked way better.

  • Belthronding

    I like it

  • Marc Gruben

    Definitely a looker, but when I first saw it, for a split-second I thought “Nice Kia Stinger profile”. At least with the A7 and the Stinger, I get the practicality of a hatchback.

  • ErnieB

    Best looking BMW currently available..

  • Ilbirs

    Not as beautiful as the 2-door 8 Coupe, but still pleasant to the eye. Why can’t BMW go as well as this on the rest of its current lineup?

    • Nastinupe1911

      Too much of a compromise of interior space. I mean they have the 4 Series GC that also looks good.

      • Astonman

        That 4 series GC is nice

  • An Existing Person

    I kind of expected BMW to disappoint with the 8-Series GC but this actually looks really good. Can’t wait to see the M8 GC.

  • Mr. EP9

    Now we wait for the M8.

    • Matt

      …uh yeah?

  • chris

    rooflines better than the 2-door

    • donald seymour

      Yeah, I know right ?

  • exeptor

    Thank you BMW to let me out of the situation to explain why I hate SUVs, but my favourite BMW is X7. Now I have a new favorite – really good looking car, congrats!

  • Baeyoung ❂

    BMW has successfully integrated many KIA elements in their new line up

  • SteersUright

    Looks ok. Not in love with the design. Really, its just kinda bland and forgettable.

  • lapirk

    this is such a forgettable design.
    bland profile.
    tiny wheels.
    horrible boot shutline. might as well have made it a hatchback
    as someone said the 6GC looks way better

  • Harry_Wild

    Deep pockets to buy this 8 serie coupe! But leasing is much more reasonable and no problems while leasing, under warranty! LOL! https://media1.giphy.com/media/XbxZ41fWLeRECPsGIJ/giphy.gif

  • erly5

    It’s not great, is it? Any smaller wheels and the design will fall apart. Disappointed!

  • lagunas3ca

    Just wait for Alpina B8 Gran Coupe.

  • Sébastien

    Nice Stinger… Oh wait

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Did much better with this rather than the actual coupe.
