2020 BMW M850i xDrive Gran Coupe

by Mike Hunter

An impressive V-8 engine is only part of the story. The M850i xDrive Gran Coupe is loaded with standard features to bring out every ounce of performance. It has a 4.4-liter BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine, xDrive; and intelligent all-wheel drive — mean performance at its best and speed with perfect handling when needed. With 523 horsepower, this machine will explode off the line.

Sized like a sedan, designed like a sports car, the first-ever 8 Series Gran Coupe features chiseled lines and a graceful, low roofline in a four-door configuration.

The M850i comes standard with Integral Active Steering that powers front and rear wheels to work together, allowing for greater agility at slow speeds and swifter responsiveness on highways. Improved damper control in the standard Adaptive M Suspension allows the best control of BMW’s response, from everyday comfort to weekend excitement.

The exclusive design of the standard 20-inch M wheels stands out on the road, while the blue-calipered M sport brakes bring everything to a standstill. Style 728 M with performance run-flat tires come standard, with several options available to enhance the already rocket-like look of this coupe/sedan.

The interior is exquisite, coated with the finest finishes in multiple options, from extended Merino leather upholstery to stainless steel fabric. The instrument panel is sewn with Nappa leather finish, making for a refined yet sporty look. The Harman Kardon® Surround Sound Audio System with equalizer and powerful 464-watt amplifier outputting to the 16-speaker system includes nine tweeters, five midrange speakers and two bass speakers. Enhanced smartphone connectivity with additional microphone, USB connections and ability for simultaneous device pairings make the technology as sophisticated as one may need for the next several years.
