2024 BMW 8-Series Grand Coupe, Review, Pricing – The 2024 BMW 8-series Gran Coupe, based on the 8-series coupe, increases the number of doors from two to four while keeping the two-sporty doors’ handling and svelte roofline. This results in a more practical sedan body shape. A powerful twin-turbo V-8 is an option, though the base model comes standard with a strong-running, turbocharged inline-six. The 8-series Gran Coupe is swift and elegant with any engine. Although the interior is classy and comfy, we recommend the roomier 7-series sedan if you’re looking for a limousine-like experience for the back seat. Although competitors like the Audi S7, Porsche Panamera, and Mercedes-AMG GT four-door offer similar fastback styles, it’s probably one of the more attractive options in its class.
For 2024, the 8-series Gran Coupe gets a minimal stylistic change that comprises a new front bumper, a grille redesign with standard illumination, new wheel designs, and a modernized color scheme. A larger 12.3-inch infotainment display improves the inside of the vehicle. For 2023, the Alpina B8 variant is back with the same design upgrades as the primary vehicle. A brand-new 8 X Jeff Koons model costs a whopping $350,995, has an interior designed by a famous American artist, and is only available in a minimal number.
2024 BMW 8-Series Grand Coupe Redesign
Images of the new 2024 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe present it freshly each time we view it as if it were improving with each look. It is a stunningly attractive four-door in any of the 11 available paint colors. The 840i has blacked-out Shadowline exterior trim; Icon LED headlights with Laserlight technology and auto high beams, 19-inch double-spoke orbit grey light-alloy wheels, the M Sport aerodynamic kit, and a motorized trunk lid. 20-inch V-spoke Cerium Grey alloy wheels are included with the M850i xDrive. An M carbon roof and the M Carbon exterior package, which provides for M Carbon mirror caps and single-piece carbon finishers around the tailpipes, are available as exterior options.
The 840i and 840i xDrive models of the Gran Coupe have a total length of 200.2 inches, while the M850i xDrive has a slightly longer full length of 200.3 inches. The M850i xDrive is 55.4 inches tall, while the lower-end variants have a width of 76.1 inches and a total height of 55.2 inches. The standard model’s curb weight is 4,262 pounds; the xDrive variants are 4,381 pounds, and the M850i xDrive is a hefty 4,758 pounds.
Inside, the 2024 BMW 8-Series is usually a coupe. The sloping roofline impacts the headroom for the passengers, and just like every other car in the segment, the rear seats feel too small for adults to sit in. However, the front seats are classic BMWs with lots of padding and bolstering, and the option of 14-way power adjustment only enhances the experience. Although the interior is exceptionally comfortable, only two doors in the front may be used for entry and exit, and the only way to access the back seat is by folding down the front chairs.
The 2024 BMW 8-Series coupe embodies the brand’s aim of giving the interior a dignified and stately feel in terms of fit and finish. The leather-wrapped M-steering wheel has a unique feel, and the dashboard’s Nappa leather finish blends beautifully with the other premium materials available. The anthracite headlining, floor mats and seats with Merino leather upholstery make the car’s (nearly) $100,000 price tag worthwhile.
For 2024, two engine options are available, and a test drive will soon show the performance variations between the two. BMW offers a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine with 335 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque in the base model. This arrangement feels more than swift enough for city driving and interstate cruising, with a 0 to 60 sprint time of 4.9 seconds in RWD form and 4.6 seconds in xDrive versions. We adore its seamless delivery of power, despite its lack of it. The twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 in the M850i xDrive will do if you need more power. With a quick throttle turn, this configuration obliterates the tarmac with 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. With these specifications, the 8 Series Gran Coupe will reach 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. The top speed is 130 mph for all models or 155 mph for vehicles with a higher restriction and summer performance tires. A superb eight-speed automatic transmission with sport and manual shift settings powers the 840i’s rear or all four wheels. Only AWD is offered in the M850i.
The 840i model of the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe has a maximum range of up to 450 miles with a fuel tank capacity of 18 gallons. While driving the 3.0-liter derivative lightly would yield impressive statistics for a vehicle in this class, you’d expect that such a huge car, giving such remarkable performance figures, would offer pretty unsatisfactory gas economy results. The top ratings for the base model 840i are 22/29/25 mpg city/highway/combined. These figures fall to 20/27/23 mpg for the xDrive model. Even though the more potent M850i xDrive is a monster, it still achieves a decent 17/24/19 mpg.
2024 BMW 8-Series Grand Coupe Date and Price
Depending on how much power and options you choose, the price of the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe fluctuates. You’re looking at a reasonable value at this base price since the M Sport exterior package and Merino leather with upgraded seats now come standard at no additional cost, with an MSRP of $85,000 excluding tax, registration, and a $995 destination fee. For instance, the Porsche Panamera starts at $87,200. The entry-level 840i xDrive will set you back $87,900, while the top-tier M850i xDrive costs $99,900.—–
