Currently, only one model is sold, the M850i XDrive coupe with four-wheel drive and a 4.4-liter V8 turbo engine, which starts at 111,900 US dollars. BMW traditionally offers Coupé and Gran Coupé models with almost identical prices. So expect that a similarly equipped M850i XDrive Gran Coupe has the same price there or nearby.
