Review 

The 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe is ready for almost everything, whether you want to relax and enjoy a long, relaxing cruise or tear through a twisty mountain pass. The seats have expanded Merino leather upholstery with 16-way power adjustment and power bolsters in the front. The optional Competition Kit boosts power to 617 horsepower and allows 0-60 mph in three seconds.

These seats, and also the power-adjustable steering wheel and front armrests, are heated. A 12.3-inch digital driver’s display is combined with a 10.25-inch central touchscreen. BMW Laserlights, frontal collision warning, adaptive brake lights, and driver fatigue/focus alarm are available safety features. With 42.1 inches of legroom and spacious seats with 16-way power change, front-seat passengers should have no concerns. However, there are no massage seats, which seems like a curious omission at this price point.

BMW’s flagship twin-turbo V8 engine produces between 600 and 617 horsepower in this top-tier variant of the 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe. The M8 Gran Coupe can accelerate like a supercar with so much strength while still moving four people in comfort.

2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Interior

With a wide central tunnel extending back in the back seats, the middle seat rear passenger will have to straddle their legs to either side in the 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe. Aside from the middle passenger, the German offers 36.6 inches of rear legroom, 7.1 inches more than the two-door version. Thanks to the coupe-like roofline, the headroom is small but not cramped.

However, the cabin is still lovely, with plenty of standard features such as 16-way power front seats,  pedestrian detection, wireless charging, four-zone climate control, soft-close doors, and heating that stretches to the front armrests. The gear shift lever and carbon-fiber trim are M touch that works well.
