The all-new BMW 8 Series Coupe was unveiled to waiting crowds at this week’s Paris Motor Show and it was worth the wait as it combines the dynamic credentials of a high-calibre sports car both visually and technologically with the exclusivity of a luxurious coupe.
The new design language, laced with clarity and precision, expresses an unmistakable sporting aesthetic. The body structure, powertrain and chassis technology of the 8 Series Coupe are geared squarely to delivering a stand-out driving experience of sporting intent. All of which provides an extremely dynamic initiation into the luxury segment for the brand’s model offensive. The new BMW 8 Series Coupe’s ultra-advanced control & display, driver assistance and connectivity equipment roster also contributes to the car’s exclusive, innovative character.
The resemblance of the 8 Series Coupe to the BMW M8 GTE endurance racer is highlighted particularly vividly by the BMW M Performance model available from launch. The BMW 840d xDrive is available with a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine producing 315bhp. Efficiency is rated at a combined 45.6-46.3mpg with CO2 emissions at 164- 160g/km.
All models have intelligent all-wheel drive and also come as standard with Adaptive M suspension and Integral Active Steering.
