You want a family sedan with 600 hp, which can run from zero to sixty in 3 seconds? You put your bottom dollar you do. And if you're already on the market for an M8, this two-door version is actually $ 3,000 cheaper than the two-door version, so you can also save a few dollars.

I am traditionally the one who says: "Ugh, another new niche vehicle in a fictitious segment. Ho hum. "But this time I call" Hot damn! "From the rooftops, because of the damned rules, the pantheon of full-fledged executive sedans with lots of power, sleek looks, and tons of speed."

The M8 Gran Coupe The M8 Competition Gran Coupe are almost identical in technical terms and drivetrain to their respective two-door M8s and feature the same 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo engine with 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque (625 hp in the Competition model), the same M xDrive all-wheel-drive system with selectable RWD and the same 8-speed automatic transmission and all this jazz – there's nothing new except the family-friendliness of two additional he doors.

For these additional doors, the M8 Gran Coupé was 9.1 cm longer, 1.4 cm wider and 2.3 cm larger than his two-door brother M8. 7.9 inches of this length is added to the wheelbase, so you can be sure that the rear seat has much more legroom than the two-door. This extra amount is linked to a weight penalty that adds 185 pounds to two doors and increases the total weight to 4,480 pounds.

Personally, I hate the tendency to call everything a four-door "coupe", but this car looks too good to be furious for a long time.

Just look at this fantastic quilted and perforated interior. Look at these totally damn wheels. AND SEE HOW PURPLE IS!
