With the arrival of the BMW M8 Gran Coupe, the new 8 Series and M8 family is now complete. The latest addition came in the form of a highly luxurious four-door coupe and just a few weeks ago, we were fortunate to have spent some quality time with the car. While in Portugal driving the BMW M8 Competition Coupe, BMW has granted us access to a secret room. So we took this opportunity to film a BMW M8 Gran Coupe review, especially since it was featuring a color from BMW Individual – Ametrin Metallic.

Just like in the official photos, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe is quite stunning in person as well. Like the standard 8 Series Gran Coupe, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe features a sweeping roofline, muscular rear haunches and an integrated rear spoiler. It’s rare when a four-door version of a two-door car actually looks better but, in the case of the M8 Gran Coupe, it’s leaps and bounds better looking.
We believe it’s easily the best looking BMW in the current portfolio.
Inside, the materials are absolute top-notch and its tech is very impressive. However, it isn’t really any different that the cabin of the 8 Series Coupe, despite a few touches here and there. But the BMW M8 Gran Coupe makes up for it with back seat space. The two-door M8 Coupe is incredibly uncomfortable in the back seat for most people, however, the M8 Gran Coupe can fit two adults or even three children in the back plenty comfortably.
The seats are comfortable, there’s more than enough headroom for more normal-sized humans and and there’s even a nice center console for climate controls.
Speaking of big, the four-door BMW M8 is significantly larger than its sibling. It measures 9.1 inches longer, 1.4 inches wider, 2.3 inches taller and has a 7.9-inch longer wheelbase.
Of course, the BMW M8 Gran Coupe gets the same brilliant tech as every other 8 Series (and basically ever other BMW) and it’s slick, easy-to-use and packed with features. Being a proper M car, it also gets the two little red “M1” and “M2” buttons on the steering wheel for drive setting presets and the new gear lever.
The next stop for the BMW M8 Gran Coupe is 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show in November. But for now, enjoy our exclusive BMW M8 Gran Coupe review and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/bmwblog_subscribe
