The pro­duc­tion of the new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé, M8 Com­pe­ti­tion Coupe and M8 Com­pe­ti­tion Con­vert­ible has begun at the marque’s assem­bly Plant in Din­golf­ing, Europe.

This brings the total num­ber of lux­u­ri­ous sports coupé vari­ants built at the plant in Low­er Bavaria, Ger­many to five.

The sixth fam­i­ly mem­ber is already on the hori­zon.

BMW M8 Gran Coupé will also cel­e­brate its world pre­miere lat­er this year, as the Din­golf­ing plant expands its posi­tion as the BMW brand’s pri­ma­ry plant for lux­u­ry cars and con­tin­ues its prod­uct offen­sive in this seg­ment.

BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé

The new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé will roll off the pro­duc­tion line at BMW Group Plant Din­golf­ing, along with the BMW 5 Series, 7 Series and remain­ing 8 Series vari­ants.

The car­mak­er said the Gran Coupé will make up over half BMW 8 Series vol­umes, mak­ing it the most-pro­duced vari­ant of the BMW 8 Series fam­i­ly.

The lux­u­ry sports coupé is prov­ing pop­u­lar with cus­tomers in the Unit­ed States to account for a third in sales, fol­lowed by the Mid­dle East region and the UK mar­ket.

The new four-door BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé is a gen­uine sports car that com­bines spa­cious­ness in the rear with all the ben­e­fits of a lux­u­ry sedan.

The Gran Coupé is 231 mm longer and 61 mm taller than the reg­u­lar Coupé.

The 28 mm wider rear axle sets a new pro­duc­tion record than any oth­er BMW brand.

Design­ers style the rear seat bench as indi­vid­ual seats fea­ture two inte­gral head­rests.

The excep­tion­al bal­ance between per­for­mance and supreme long-dis­tance com­fort is best expe­ri­enced in the back seats of the new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé.

The panoram­ic glass roof choice, avail­able in the new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé, cre­ates con­tin­u­ous trans­paren­cy from the wind­screen to the rear win­dow.

The added weight of this four-door vari­ant, at around 70 kilo­grams more than the BMW 8 Series Coupe.

This is because of an intel­li­gent mate­r­i­al mix, with doors and flaps made of alu­mini­um and the boot lid formed from SMC plas­tic.

The three engine vari­ants avail­able for the new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé from mar­ket launch in autumn 2019 reflect the four-door lux­u­ry coupé’s breadth of char­ac­ter.

In addi­tion to the range-top­ping, 530 hp 4.4 litre eight-cylin­der petrol engine and a 320 hp six-cylin­der inline diesel unit with impres­sive trac­tion, a high-revving 3.0 litre six-cylin­der inline petrol engine with a max­i­mum out­put of 340 hp are now also avail­able for the first time.

New BMW M8 Com­pe­ti­tion Coupé and Con­vert­ible

With the pro­duc­tion of new BMW M8 Com­pe­ti­tion Coupé and Con­vert­ible, Plant Din­golf­ing is ven­tur­ing into a new per­for­mance range in the lux­u­ry seg­ment.

Its most pow­er­ful engine in the BMW Group’s mod­el line-up deliv­ers 625 hp.

The 4.4 l V8 engine takes the BMW M8 Com­pe­ti­tion Coupé from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 sec­onds.

In com­bi­na­tion with the M Driver’s Pack­age offered as an option, the top speed is not elec­tron­i­cal­ly lim­it­ed until 305 km/h.

The inte­ri­or of the BMW M sports­car from Din­golf­ing pairs the sporty char­ac­ter of a high-per­for­mance vehi­cle with the lux­u­ri­ous ambiance cre­at­ed by styl­ish details and metic­u­lous work­man­ship.

The char­ac­ter-defin­ing fea­tures of the new BMW M8 Coupé include the dou­ble-bub­ble con­tour of its car­bon-fiber-rein­forced plas­tic roof (CFRP), which is man­u­fac­tured in an inno­v­a­tive wet com­pres­sion process at Plant Din­golf­ing.

Around 60 BMW M8s leave the Din­golf­ing facil­i­ty every day.

Each vehi­cle under­goes a final qual­i­ty inspec­tion on the plant’s own break-in course pri­or to deliv­ery.

The lux­u­ry sports coupé’s biggest sales will come from the US, with well over a third of all units like­ly to be sold there.

No oth­er mar­ket comes close. Both Coupé and Con­vert­ible body vari­ants are equal­ly pop­u­lar with BMW M8 cus­tomers.
