We just finished a European tour in which we had the chance to drive the new BMW 840i Gran Coupe, the X1 Facelift and the super sporty BMW M8 Coupe and M8 Convertible. All the reviews will be online shortly, but before that, we put together a new photo gallery of the 8 Series Gran Coupe. The car seen below is the BMW 840i Gran Coupe with an M Sport Package and painted in the Frozen Brilliant White Metallic color.
Furthermore, the car features an all-around blacked out look, with black wheels from the M Performance catalog, along with tinted rear windows which match perfectly against the white theme.
In the US, Standard paint finishes on the new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe include non-metallic Alpine White and metallic finishes in Carbon Black (when the M Sport package is selected), Black Sapphire (840i and 840i xDrive only), Mineral White, Sonic Speed Blue, Sunset Orange, Bluestone (840i and 840i xDrive only), Blue Ridge Mountain (840i and 840i xDrive only) and Barcelona Blue (840i and 840i xDrive only).
Optional Individual paint finishes include Dravit Grey Metallic, Tanzanite Blue II Metallic, Aventurin Red Metallic and Frozen Bluestone Metallic.
The BMW 840i Gran Coupe comes with the brand’s ubiquitous, but excellent, B58 3.0 liter turbocharged I6 engine, making 340 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. According to BMW, 0-60 mph happens in 5.2 seconds for the rear-drive car and 4.9 seconds for the xDrive-equipped one.
The only rear-drive model, the 840i Gran Coupe, will have the rear-wheel steering as an option.
But before we share our driving impressions, let’s take a look at the beautiful BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe as seen in the beautiful area of Algarve, Portugal.
