The new BMW M8 Coupe and new BMW M8 Competition Coupe, plus the new BMW M8 Convertible and new BMW M8 Competition Convertible.

The new models draw the energy for their exceptional performance exploits from the most powerful engine ever developed for a BMW M GmbH car.

The high-revving V8 unit with M TwinPower Turbo technology develops 441 kW/600 hp in the new BMW M8 Coupe and new BMW M8 Convertible, and 460 kW/625 hp in the Competition models.

The high-performance power unit teams up with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, and the engine's power is channelled to the road via the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system.

The model-specific chassis technology has been designed and tuned with the specific demands of track use in mind.

One of the features of the chassis that stands out in particular is a newly developed integrated braking system, an M-specific version of which presents the driver with two different brake pedal feel settings.

The precise interaction between powertrain, chassis technology and aerodynamics has been carefully honed over the course of intensive testing at the BMW Group's test track in Miramas in southern France, the winter testing centre in Arjeplog, Sweden and the Nürburgring's Nordschleife circuit, along with other race circuits.

Experience collected from the development of the BMW M8 GTE racing car also played a role in the configuration process.

The performance-focused character of the engine, transmission and chassis allows the new BMW M8 Coupe and new BMW M8 Convertible to power from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 / 3.4 seconds.

The new BMW M8 Competition Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, the new BMW M8 Competition Convertible in 3.3 seconds.
