ABOUT BMW M8
The BMW 8 Series came back in 2018 after almost 20 years. innovated to replace the 6 Series, the 8 Series is sportier, more modern, and enables BMW to compete against the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe.. But since this is BMW we’re talking about, it’s not just a matter of competing against its rivals; it’s also about one-upping them when the opportunity arrives. That “opportunity” has come in the form of the BMW M8, the high-performance version that will be offered in coupe and convertible form, not to mention coupe and convertible variants of the more influential Competition trim. Production for the M8 starts in mid-to-late 2019. The M8 is priced from $133,000 for the base coupe model to $155,500 for the Competition convertible model,beating the $150,000 Aston Martin Vantage while trailing the $335,000 Ferrari 812 Superfast by just a few clicks.
The BMW M specific chassis is lighter, but steering and suspension changes sound minor compared to the M850i. BMW has equipped the M8 with the same adaptive suspension hardware, but tuned to a set-up specific for the M8’s higher output. For instance, the front axle boasts increased negative camber. The M8 is no different. Its cabin will provide plenty of space up front as well as slick amenities such as a digital instrument panel and a user-friendly infotainment system.
The headlamps look intensely aggressive. The unmistakable BMW kidney grille is huge in size yet distinctive in its layout. The lower air intakes are massive, too, but they’re also appropriately sized in a way that creates a solid visual balance with all the design elements in this area,That results in a more dynamic-looking performance model that fits our expectation on what a proper grand tourer should look like.
where comes the aggression from, the M8 provides its power through an eight-speed Steptronic transmission to all four wheels via BMW’s xDrive system. With a indomitable launch, BMW says the coupe will hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds flat, with the droptop being one-tenth of a second slower and competition models one-tenth quicker. with no hesitation , BMW electronically controls the M8 to 155 mph, but if you check the optional M Driver’s Package, you can keep going to 190. Those performance metrics position the M8 among the world’s quickest GT cars, the new M8 offers plenty of customization for both comfort and performance behind the wheel, though there is an emphasis on performance
Enhanced suspension components combine with steering and adaptive chassis settings for cruising or track attack, with Competition models adding stiffer springs and additional hardened components underneath. 15.5-inch front brakes with six-piston calipers are standard, with optional 15.75-inch carbon ceramic available to help bring everything to a standstill on command. Even the exhaust has selectable flaps to provide either a (relatively) quiet or raucous aural experience. Perhaps best of all, a new single setup button in the M8’s center console allows control over all performance configurations.
The 2020 BMW M8’s interior is the perfect example of using an existing template and customizing it a bit differently. For all intents and purposes, the M8 has a similar interior to its 8 Series brethren, particularly the M850i. But there’s also something different about it.
That difference is something that you don’t necessarily see; it’s something that you feel. Take the seats, for example.The thicker bolsters don’t trigger the senses when you look at them, but once you sit down on the seats, you feel them, that rich black leather wraps the seats up in a warm cuddle. BMW also put in brown contrast stitching to give it a sportier look and a brown diamond inlay pattern in the middle to give it a more premium feel.
It’s not just the seats, too. BMW also gifted the 2020 M8 with a new shift lever that mercifully replaces the wobbly knob on the M5. Not only does it look better — it’s covered in black leather with red contrast stitching — but it also helps add to the premium surrounding inside the grand tourer. This is a common theme that you’ll see when people describe the M8’s interior.
