2020 BMW M8 – We now have new photos and videos of some M8 prototypes tested at the ‘Ring. The car looks like the first prototypes we saw for the regular 8 series although there are some differences.
The laser headlights are now exposed and under these are much larger shots. Openings on the sidewalls suggest a vertical vent on the trailing edge of the front fenders, while at the rear is the characteristic quadruple arrangement of the M division for the exhaust tips. One of the shots also shows the M8 next to an M3, revealing how much the M8 will be bigger and more imposing compared to its little brother. This is helped by massive wheels and tires.
The power of the 2020 BMW M8 models, meanwhile, come from the famous double-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 BMW. In the new 2018 M5 that was unveiled Monday, the engine is tuned to deliver 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. It is possible that a little more power is extracted from the engine for the M8 service.
When it comes out in 2019 as a 2020 model, it will be the first series 8 officially worked by the guys in Garching. Although an earlier version of the previous Series 8 M was planned, the idea was dropped later.
