Beautiful car!
Much more useable for family, but damn there goes $160K

Rather get M5 and X5 together for that price but there is a car for everyone

I just saw M8 in person last week and I must say interior is gorgeous

Looks amazing but personally I think the M6GC looks better. I'm sure majority will disagree.

Looks incredible, love the rear wheel arches.

M6 GC comes in 6MT, I'll hold onto mine. Plenty of lifetime left for the car to drive for me when manuals are gone for good.

I'm sorry.
M8GC is a great looking car but if I must be honest,
I would have to take the new RS6 avant over M8GC for this generation.
