2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Coming In March
The 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe and M8 Gran Coupe Competition, powered by a 600 horsepower 4.4 liter S63 M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine and mated to the M Eight-speed Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, rides on a chassis and body which is 9.1-inches longer, 1.4-inches wider, 2.3-inches taller and with an increased 7.9-inch wheelbase over the M8 Coupe. The Competition models feature firmer suspension settings to further improve steering and lateral responses, stiffer engine mounts, increased front negative camber for increased cornering ability and rear toe-link ball-joints instead of rubber bushings for more precise rear wheel tracking. The M8 Gran Coupe First Edition, with 50 units for the U.S. market, goes into production in March 2020.
