THE EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN OF THE BMW 8 SERIES GRAN COUPÉ
C-pillar with fin design
The C-pillar with fin design and the new, modern interpretation of the BMW Hofmeister kink in the side window graphics contribute significantly to the flowing silhouette of the vehicle. The fin design in the transition from the roof to the rear section reminds of the design of handmade automobile classics. At the same time, the large pillar surface suggests status and presence.
Panorama glass roof
When opened, the electric Panorama glass roof with slide and lift functions provides ample fresh air, while it creates a bright, light-flooded atmosphere in the interior when closed. You open and close it at the touch of a button or with the vehicle key. It is equipped with a roller sunblind and a wind deflector. It also provides a continuous glass look from front to rear window.
In laser high-beam mode, BMW Laserlight illuminates a range of up to 600 m, nearly twice as far as that of conventional headlights. Better visibility in the dark significantly increases safety. Blue accents and the lettering “BMW Laser” in the headlight also underline the technological standards and the sportiness of the vehicle.
Active Air Stream kidney grille
The Active Air Stream kidney grille opens and closes the air vents in the radiator grille according to the cooling requirements of the engine, the brakes and the air conditioning. At the same time, the system’s movable slats reduce air resistance when closed, thereby improving aerodynamics.
M Sport front apron
The M Sport front apron with spoiler lip enhances the sporty, dynamic impression and improves the vehicle’s aerodynamics. The airflow is directed to the outer sides of the front wheels through the openings. The emerging air curtain prevents turbulences in the area of the wheelhouses and therefore reduces the air resistance.
The tailpipe trims on both sides in Cerium Grey are a striking and exclusive design highlight in the rear view of the vehicle. The signature colour is as sporty as it is luxurious.
The outer seats of the rear bench seat have a sporty individual seat character with integrated headrests. An additional middle seat makes it possible to make shorter journeys with five people. The rear seat bench naturally has three-point seat belts on all three seats.
Through numerous LED lights, the Ambient light produces a pleasant lighting mood in the interior and a special sense of space in the dark. Colours, brightness and colour scenarios can be adjusted individually. The equipment includes contour and map pocket lighting as well as light guides in the centre console.
Multifunction seats for driver and front passenger
The Multifunction seats for driver and front passenger offer comprehensive adjustment possibilities and exceptional seating comfort and safety. This way, the seats can be optimally adapted to personal requirements by an electric backrest width adjustment, a variable lumbar support and a manual seat depth adjustment.
‘CraftedClarity’ glass application
The exclusive ‘CraftedClarity’ glass application features hand-crafted glass elements on the gear selector, volume control, iDrive controller and start / stop button that enhance the interior visibly and tactually.
Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround sound system
The Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround sound system with three diamond tweeters features outstanding studio-quality sound for every seat in the vehicle. 16 carefully positioned speakers ensure a mesmerising sound experience. The speakers are illuminated, visually emphasising the system’s outstanding sound quality.
Air conditioning with 4-zone control
The Automatic air conditioning with 4-zone control enables individual climate comfort on all four seats. The climate for the front seat area can be regulated via the control unit with fully variable TFT display made of bonded glass in the instrument panel. The rear passengers adjust their desired climate via the control element below the air vents at the end of the centre console.
