As BMW 8-series has just launched, it would be difficult to give any verdict for it. Moreover, the German carmaker has offered the 8 Series in two variants: Gran Coupe (4-door) and M8 (2-door). Both variants will be brought to India as completely built units. While the 8 Series Gran Coupe is offered with a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder petrol engine (340PS/500Nm), the M8 comes with a 4.4-litre V8 petrol motor that puts out 600PS and 750Nm. Both engines come mated to an 8-speed Steptronic Sport AT gearbox. BMW offers the 8 Series with three driving modes: Comfort, Sport, and Sport+. While the Gran Coupe is offered with a rear-wheel-drive drivetrain, the M8’s 4.4-litre engine sends power to all four wheels. The M8 is capable of doing the 0-100kmph run in 3.3 seconds, which is mighty quick! Another talking point about the 8 Series is its design, especially its jaw-dropping silhouette and the flowing lines and creases. The M8 looks sportier thanks to it being a proper two-door coupe. The front-end of both cars looks sharp with aggressively styled kidney grilles and swept back LED headlamps while the rear-end looks tasteful with swept-back LED tail lamps. The M8 further adds aggressive bumpers, M-branded alloy wheels, brake callipers and M badging on the front fenders. Moreover, BMW is also offering a variety of exterior and interior customization options on the 8 Series.
