BMW Malaysia has launched the first-ever BMW 840i Gran Coupé M Sport, to add to its portfolio of premium vehicles. Due to the imposed Movement Control Order, the launch of the 840i was done virtually (the brand’s first-ever virtual launch in Malaysia) on https://shop.bmw.com.my.
“The Story of Modern and Progressive Luxury is the key driver for the BMW brand to redefine modern luxury through inspirational design, pioneering innovations as well as superior styling.The first-ever BMW 840i Gran Coupé M Sport, our newest ultra-luxurious, high-performance four door sports coupé redefines all these – the perfect combination of unbridled power, superior performance and sheer elegance,” said Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.
Hoelzl added, “We introduced the BMW M850i xDrive Coupé in March last year to much celebration as the vehicle brought forth a new era of luxury in the country. Now, we are thrilled to present from BMW, the most luxurious four door sports coupé for Malaysia.”
The BMW 840i Gran Coupé M Sport features a dynamic silhouette with four doors, a long wheelbase and a coupé-style roofline that flows effortlessly into a sloping rear. This coupé is the most luxurious BMW has ever built. It retails at RM968,800 on the road, without insurance, and includes BMW Group Malaysia’s latest 5 Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty, Free Scheduled Service Programme and BMW Tyre Warranty Programme.
As the most luxurious sports coupé BMW has ever built, the BMW 840i Gran Coupé M Sport sports the iconic kidney grille that is complemented by a widened frame that emphasises the vehicle’s low centre of gravity. The large M Sport air intakes and BMW laser headlights with high-beam assistant (incidentally the most slender headlight of all BMW models) provide clear definition to the face of the vehicle. The Gran Coupé also comes with the BMW M Aerodynamic kit, in addition to the standard BMW M Sport package.
The wheelbase of the coupé has been increased by around 20 cm, allowing the addition of another two frameless doors and extra cabin space. The coupé also offers 20″ light alloy wheels in the Y-spoke style 728 M Bicolour with mixed size and run flat tyres.
Powering the coupé is a 3.0L six-cylinder in-line TwinPower Turbo engine that is new to the BMW 8 Series. The engine is paired to an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission with shift paddles and combined with the BMW sDrive rear wheel drive system. It is capable of generating 340 hp @ 5,000 – 6,500 rpm and peak torque of 500 Nm @ 1,600 – 4,500 rpm. The century sprint is achieved in 5.2 seconds, fastest in its segment while top speed is capped at 250 km/h. Average combined fuel consumption is recorded at 7.9 l/100km and it has a combined carbon output of 180 g/km.
The BMW 840i Gran Coupé M Sport owes its extraordinary driving characteristics to a low centre of gravity, an extremely stiff body and chassis as well as high-tech suspension components largely taken off the M shelves, such as the M Sport differential on the rear axle for maximum traction, the Integral Active Steering for more directional stability and Adaptive Suspension with electronically-controlled dampers.
Inside this four-door coupé, the panoramic glass roof offers an airy ambience to make the cabin feel even more spacious. The coupé is also furnished with a full-leather dashboard, electric sports seats with integrated headrests and active seat ventilation for both the driver and front passenger. The rear seats have a moulded single-seat appearance.
Other features include the M Leather steering wheel and ‘Crafted Clarity’ glass application in the interior elements, ambient lighting with adjustable brightness and colour spectrum, four-zone automatic air conditioning, and roller sunblinds. The further expanded luggage space now offers 440 litres of cargo capacity when the rear seat backrests are folded; the seats have a 40/20/40 split ratio.
Further, the driver benefits from digital services like the BMW Live Cockpit Professional which combines with the Head-Up Display and BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant for smoother vehicle operation. The natural voice interaction via the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, intuitive operation via the iDrive Controller, touchscreen feature and BMW Gesture Control also provide additional safety and convenience to both driver and passenger. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional includes a 12.3″ customisable instrument cluster and combines with the 10.25″ touchscreen Control Display for better user-friendliness. The latest-generation infotainment system based on BMW Operating System 7.0 has a clean layout as well as customisable and personalised displays.
The BMW Personal CoPilot included in the 840i Gran Coupé M Sport is a suite of driving assistance systems. These features include the Driving Assistant Professional which comes with the Cross-traffic Warning at the rear and Lane Change Warning, Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, automatic Speed Limit Assist, Steering and Lane Control Assistant (including narrow-passage support), and Forward Collision Warning with braking function (pedestrians and cyclists). Additionally, the Parking Assistant Plus available as standard includes the Parking Assistant as well as the Surround View system with Top View, Panorama View and Remote 3D View. The lateral parking aid and the Active Park Distance Control emergency braking features are also included to help support in tight parking situations.
Owners will also be able to enjoy the BMW Display Key along with the BMW Connected Package Professional with Teleservices, Intelligent Emergency Call and Apple CarPlay for enhanced convenience and comfort on every drive. Sheer Driving Pleasure is also found in great driving music via the Harman Kardon 16-speaker surround sound system.
The BMW 840i Gran Coupé M Sport comes with a choice of six exterior colours i.e. Barcelona Blue, Sonic Speed Blue, Carbon Black, Black Sapphire, Mineral White and Sunset Orange. This can be paired with BMW Individual extended Merino leather trim in a variety of premium colour combinations ranging from Black, Night Blue, Cognac, Tartufo to Fiona Red.
