Start of production for three new BMW 8 Series models
Yesterday, no fewer than three new models from the BMW 8 Series family will all go into production at BMW Group Plant Dingolfing: the new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé, the new M8 Competition Coupé and the new M8 Competition Convertible.
This brings the total number of luxurious sports coupé variants built at the plant in Lower Bavaria to five, with the sixth family member already on the horizon: the BMW M8 Gran Coupé will also celebrate its world premiere later this year.
About 60 BMW M8s come out of the Dingolfing plant every day.
At market launch in autumn the new BMW Series Gran Coupé will be available with three engine variants. In addition to the range-topping 530 hp 4.4 litre eight-cylinder petrol engine and a 320 hp six-cylinder inline Diesel unit, a high-revving 3.0 litre six-cylinder inline petrol engine with a maximum output of 340 hp will be also available for the first time.
