Seriously, that’s not me saying that. That’s BMW saying it in the very first line of their press release for the BMW M8 Gran Coupe, which is a four-door sedan based off of the new M8:

Munich. The BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe illustrates the meaning behind the letter “M” at BMW in impressive style: it stands for “more”, more of everything. As well as dynamic excellence, the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe embodies a new facet of luxury for the BMW brand – ultra-sporty, extrovert and polarising.

Yes, more of those sentences are completely gibberish from a grammatical standpoint. The BMW M8 is somehow ultra-sporty, polarizing, AND extrovert [sic]???

But the word salad and the green color are really all that this BMW should have in common with vegetables (sorry, Kristen, it’s still a Gran Coupe though). As the new 2019 BMW 8 Series is essentially a replacement for the old 6 Series, and the 6 Series was essentially supposed to be a coupe version of the 5 Series (stay with me now), we can reasonably infer from the 2018 BMW M5 that this new 2020 BMW M8 Gran Not-A-Coupe will pump out roughly 600 horsepower, give or take.


And it’ll look pretty much exactly like this, a “concept,” though probably with slightly more toned down bumpers and some door handles, as seen in these pictures that BMW took on an alien ice planet:



If I had to guess, I’d say the carbon ceramic brakes will likely just be an option.
