BMW added today a new member to the M family: the new M8 Gran Coupe, offered in standard and of course Competition versions. The M8 Gran Coupe will go on sale in November, and the first 50 units will be sold as a special edition. Called of course First Edition it will be finished in Individual Diamant Green Metallic, combined with Golfbronze for the BMW Kidney grille, side air breather trim, door mirror and window-surround trim, exterior badging and door sill plates.
