Sentiment Score 76%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 8 Series Gran Coupe is available in M850i xDrive guise, powered by a 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V8. The straight-six provides strong power, with full torque thrust delivered at just 1,600 rpm. The smooth-as-silk eight-speed automatic transmission is more than willing to drop a gear.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
