Motor (Australia) - - PACE NOTES -

LAUNCH DATE: Q3 2019 PRICE: $250,000 (est) SPECS: 480kW/800Nm (est) BMW’S NOT about to let the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door have the hi-po hatch mar­ket to it­self, re­veal­ing the M8 Gran Coupe, a stretched ver­sion of its forth­com­ing flag­ship two-door. While just a ‘con­cept’ for now, it’s set to en­ter pro­duc­tion in 2019 hous­ing the 4.4-litre twin­turbo V8, eight-speed auto and all-wheel drive sys­tem from the new M5. Ex­pect a hike in power to jus­tify the higher price tag, though it should use­fully un­der­cut the AMG.
