Both are powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged engine making 600 hp and 750 Nm of torque. The mighty V8 engine is paired to an 8-speed Steptronic automatic gearbox that drives all four wheels via the xDrive system.
0 to 100 km/h takes just 3.3 seconds while top speed is electronically-limited to 250 km/h. With the optional M Driver’s Package, the M8 Coupe is capable of hitting a 305 km/h top speed. Both the M8 Coupe and Gran Coupe comes with an M-specific exhaust featuring a Sound Control button to allow drivers to adjust the sound of the vehicle according to their personal preference.
Drivers can select either the default 4WD setting or 4WD Sport mode, where the latter channels more power to the rear wheels. Deactivating the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) switches the car into 2WD mode. Both are fitted with M Adaptive suspension and M six-pot caliper brakes as standard. As an alternative, the new M8 duo is also available with optional M carbon-ceramic brakes.
For those who want something a little more exclusive, BMW Malaysia says there is one and only one unit of the BMW M8 Coupe in BMW Individual’s Frozen Bluestone exterior available for an additional RM30,000.
