Last month, the Bavarians introduced the new series 1, then the X1, and the most expensive BMW so far – the M8 and, a few days ago, the "third" caravan. But the BMW offensive does not stop, so the line came a whole new model – BMW 8 Series Grand Coupe.
Compared with the stacks, GC is longer by 23 cm, expanding by 3 cm and longer by 5.6 cm. What is more important is the wheelbase is increased by 20 cm and a couple of passengers in the rear and more than enough space.
All this did not affect its attractiveness, what more, Gran Coupe is the most attractive current model of the Bavarian manufacturer.
On the inside, the expected history of a shorter "eighth" is expected on the inside, and customers of the basic versions will have the glass, and the stronger, the M850i's options are carbon.
Customers of the 8 Series Coupé Series will be able to choose between two petrol engines and one diesel.
The triple gasoline engine in the 840i develops 340 horsepower. The power will be transferred to the rear or both axles via the 8-speed automatic transmission. By "hundred" it will take 5.2 seconds.
The diesel diesel engine defends the 840d with 3.0 diesel of 320 hp. The gearbox is like the 840i, but the unit is unique on all four wheels. Up to 100 per hour it needs 5.1 seconds.
The top offer is the mentioned M850i, whose 3.0 V6 gasoline engine develops 530 hp with 750 Nm of torque. From neutral to 100 km / h, it reaches only 3.9 seconds.
Also known are the starting prices in Germany for the three versions – the 840i ranging from 91,500 euros, 840d 97,000 euros and M850i 122,700 euros.
Regardless of the fact that this BMW is the most beautiful moment, A7, Panamera and CLS got a decent opponent.
