The introduction of the BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe signals the next chapter of the brand’s model offensive in the luxury segment. Combining, as it does, the hallmark performance, agility and precision of BMW M GmbH with four full-size seats, the latest M8 model is derived directly from the new BMW M8 Competition Coupe and was developed alongside the BMW M8 GTE endurance racer. Its powertrain, chassis and aerodynamics were adapted to suit this standalone concept; intensive testing took place at the BMW Group’s proving grounds, the Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit and other race tracks.
The new BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe will receive its world premieres at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019. The worldwide market launch will get underway in April 2020, with the BMW M8 Gran Coupe First Edition also forming part of the launch offering.
