Bmw will put GC in every series. This type of car will make money but BMW will tell you "we fullfill the gap between this and that"

And at the very top of the lineup will be the:

BMW M8, Gran Coupe, Cabriolet, Competition Edition, Carbon Package, Twilight Black Edition. It won't get any better than that....

Somehow I do not like the 8 GC. I know it is just a graphic but the side line looks very strange IMO. The Hoffenmeister kink seems inconsistent.

I must admit that the BMW CS Concept from 2007 was a real beauty in contrast to the new 8 Series and its GC model. Please BMW reincarnate this beauty instead of the new 8 Series.

When you see this misfit drawings, quite funny we had discussions whether the production version would reminiscent the elegant proto.

Happy this mumbo jumbo is all out of the way, and everybody sees it's not.

It's just a bloated overweighted wannabe sportscar, that will blow a hole in your wallet as big as a real estate with a decent sized heated pool.

I agree, but maybe the design team was over excited trying to amplify this phenomenon?

Gran coupe will look better than the coupe imo, coupe's side profile looks kinda mustang-ish.

Soft top is ghastly and the 4 door looks like GranPoop. The proper coupe is the 8 series to get!

That car became the 6 series. They were very similar and most think that in the flesh the new 8 looks better than the 6.
New 8 GC will look more like a Maserati

So the regular = non-M Sport GC differs from the Coupé/Convertible at the front by adding horizontal chrome fins in the lateral air intakes, while at the rear the exhaust pipes are seamlessly joined by an uninterrupted chrome line similar to the Vision Future Luxury Concept:

Side profile looks way too much like a ghibli. Coupe is the way to go. If you need more space buy a 7 series not this GranPoop
