BMW has teased the upcoming 8 Series Gran Coupe ahead of its reveal later in 2019. 

Following in the same footsteps as the former 6 Series Gran Coupe - which it will directly replace - the 8 Series Gran Coupe is being touted as a “four-door sports car of consummate elegance,” according to BMW.

Just a single teaser image has been revealed so far, which shows the car’s slinky roofline and obvious four-door coupe bodystyle.

Possibly debuting the brand’s M8 performance variant at the same time, the 8 Series Gran Coupe is expected to use the 8 Series coupe’s drivetrains: the 390kW/750Nm 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 M850i, and the 235kW/680Nm 3.0-litre turbo-diesel six used in the 840d. 

The 8 Series Gran Coupe will use the same bold grille as the 8 Series coupe. The 8 Series Gran Coupe will use the same bold grille as the 8 Series coupe.

Both engines are paired to BMW’s 'xDrive' all-wheel drive system matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. 

Despite a bespoke back seat, the interior of the 8 Series Gran Coupe is expected to be identical to the coupe with a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and 10.25-inch central multimedia screen as standard equipment. 

The 8 Series Gran Coupe will compete with the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS and will be priced north of $180,000.
