The M8 Competition, the highest performance car of the 8 series, which we have seen a few times before, showed its face once again in South Africa. With its carbon fiber front bumper, carbon fiber diffuser and standard carbon fiber roof, the BMW M8 adds an extra touch of luxury. A more aggressive carbon fiber rear wing can optionally be brought to the M8 Competition model.
With its black exterior mirrors, special alloy wheels and four tailpipes, the M8 Competition completes its daring look. According to some sources, the M8 Competition model will be offered at the same time as the standard M8 Coupe and will produce more power in addition to a sharper suspension tuning. Since around 630 horsepower is expected for the M8 model, the Competition model may exceed 650 horsepower.
We can expect a good 0-100 km/h test result for the new M8 Competition model, which includes this kind of power, new M xDrive all-wheel drive and high-performance transmission. The M5 model completed this test in 3.4 seconds. Even the standard M8 model can exceed this figure, while the Competition model can upset this time.
