BMW is getting some attention here on Naijauto and the automotive forums. Only yesterday, we reported the unveiling of the 2020 BMW 3-Series Touring and today, we're bringing to you some leaked photos of 2020 BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe which surfaced online. And this new model will be debuted later this year.
From the photos seen, the 8-Series Gran Coupe will be coming with a familar front fascia together with a broad twin-kidney grille surrounded by slender headlights.
Walking towards the rear, the sedan is seen to have two rear doors and a longer wheelbase. Also visible is a sloping roof and aggressive side skirts. The sloping roof, however, may affect the rear seat headrest.

On getting to the rear end, you'll discover ventilated fascia and slender taillights. BMW designers fixed the car up with an integrated rear spoiler, coupled with a dual exhaust system.
We only saw a glimpse of the cabin through the photos but we believe it has a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch infotainment system, and metallic accents.

For the engine, it will share a similar one with the 8-Series Convertible variant. So, expect to see a 3L turbocharged 6-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 316 hp (235 kW/320 PS) and a torque of 501 lb-ft (680 Nm). Petrol engine enthusiasts can go for the M850i which runs on a 4.4-L twin-turbo V8 engine, producing 523 hp (390 kW/530 PS) and of course, a torque of 553 lb-ft (750 Nm).
