2020/21 BMW 8 series Grand Coupe teaser




Get ready for a "no surprise at all" day when BMW unveils their new Grand Coupe version of their new 8 series.
Basically, "Gran Coupe" is the BMW code for "Let's add 2 more doors to the coupe".
Just like what they have been doing with the 4 series  (Which is itself a coupe version of the 3 series sedan...)
They even showed us a "fake concept" version of it last year.
(The production model is basically the same car with door handles)

So this will probably be super expensive. And will allow BMW to sell an even more expensive sedan than the 8 series.
And for more money, you get a smaller, less roomy car. But, I have to say,  it does look much better and modern than the old man looking 7 series...

I’ve seen a few test mules driving through Beverly Hills. The car is low, wide and imposing. It’s definitely not awkward like the Mercedes CLS.

Unlike Cadillac Ct5, they've chosen style over rear entry/exit ease, but I imagine these buyers prefer that. Too bad about the door handles, here's hoping for frameless glass.

Elegant profile. I just hope they don't fuck it up with an atrocious front end.

neuromatico, pretty sure we've already seen the front end on the 8-series coupe. Not a fam of this at all, especially if they charge more for it than the 7-series. These all should have stayed 6-series models IMO.

No Hofmeister kink. How long until they abandon the kidney shaped grille? Dumb.

BMW is going over board with these 'segment fillers". Keep it simple.
