An Enduring Legacy of Power and Refinement

Since its inception, the BMW M8 line has been the living embodiment of automotive excellence, marking the perfect union between raw power, sophisticated luxury and unrivalled performance. This iconic saga, which has evolved over the generations, bears witness to an unwavering commitment to innovation and cutting-edge engineering.

First Salves: The BMW M8 GTE

The story begins with the BMW M8 GTE, a racing car that took its first steps on the international stage during the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season. Replacing the M6 GTLM, the M8 GTE not only marked BMW's return to Le Mans after a six-year absence, but also sparked passionate speculation about an equivalent production version.

The M8 Gran Coupé Concept: A glimpse of the future

At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, BMW lifted the veil on the M8 Gran Coupé concept, foreshadowing a high-performance four-door version of the 8 Series range. Based on the aggressive design of the M8 GTE, the concept heralded visual sophistication and breathtaking performance.

Striking Reality: The BMW M8

In June 2019, the dream became reality with the unveiling of the BMW M8 in its top-of-the-range "Competition" variant, in coupe and convertible versions. Featuring a twin-turbo V8 engine shared with the M5, this car embodies the very essence of performance with its 617 hp and imposing torque. The ZF 8HP76 automatic transmission and the ability to switch between all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive add breathtaking versatility.

Innovation and customization: M8 Competition and Performance Parts

The range-topping M8 Competition even surpasses expectations with specific engine adjustments, a modified intake system and stiffer engine mounts. For customization enthusiasts, M Performance Parts offer a distinctive touch with carbon-fiber elements, sporty wheels and an exclusive steering wheel.

The M8 on the track: M8 GTE in Competition and Safety Car

The M8 GTE proved its excellence on the track, marking its high-profile return to the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA WEC in 2018. What's more, the M8 Competition has been chosen as the official safety car at the Austrian MotoGP Grand Prix in 2019, underlining its dynamic capabilities and charisma on the track.

Let's dive into this fascinating saga, exploring each chapter of the BMW M8 story, where innovation meets passion to create an unrivalled driving experience.

First-generation M8

BMW 850CSI E31

When Power Meets Refinement

The BMW 850CSi, the pinnacle of the 8 Series range, emerged as the successor to the M8 prototype, deploying the 850i's engine with notable adjustments. Decoded as the S70B56, the engine was metamorphosed with Bosch Motronic 1.7 fuel injection and a displacement increased to 5,576 cm³, delivering 280 kW (375 hp) at 5,300 rpm and 550 N⋅m (406 lbf⋅ft) of torque at 4,000 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds marked the 850CSi's performance.

Refined Performance

The reworked suspension with stiffer springs and dampers lowered the car, while the recirculating ball steering adopted a new ratio. Staggered star wheels and four stainless steel exhaust tips enhanced the design. The 6-speed manual gearbox was the only option, guaranteeing an engaging driving experience.

Elegance and Innovation

In Europe, the 850CSi was equipped with innovative features such as four-wheel steering (AHK), upgraded brakes, two-tone interior and sports seats. In the USA, "BMW Motorsport" lettering on the door handles underlined its pedigree.

End of an Era

Production ceased at the end of 1996, as the S70 engine could not meet the new emissions standards without major modifications. The BMW 850CSi remains an emblem of unrivalled performance and unrivalled sophistication.

Second-generation M8

The Perfect Balance of Power and Luxury

The resurrection of the legendary M8 line began with the launch of the M8 GTE in 2017, marking BMW's return to the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The M8 Gran Coupé concept then caused a sensation at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, heralding the four-door declination of the 8 Series.

Intensive development of the M8 continued in 2018, with prototypes becoming ever closer to the production version. In June 2019, the M8 was officially unveiled online in its "Competition" version, ready to conquer the roads.

Power and Performance

Under the hood of the M8 beats the heart of the twin-turbo S63 V8 engine, shared with the M5, X5M and X6M models. The standard M8 delivers 591 hp, while the M8 Competition pushes the envelope to 617 hp. Thanks to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, the M8 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds.

Cutting-edge technology

The M8 is based on BMW's CLAR platform, with strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension. The xDrive all-wheel drive system can be transformed into pure rear-wheel drive for a dynamic driving experience. Optional carbon ceramic brakes offer superior control.

Design and Interior

Inspired by the M8 GTE concept, the M8 boasts an aggressive design underlined by distinctive M elements. The interior combines luxury and technology, with features such as a sports steering wheel, carbon-fiber parts, M wheels and a large optional spoiler.

From Circuit Performance to Open Roads

The M8 GTE caused a sensation in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2018, marking BMW's return to Le Mans after a six-year absence. The M8 Competition also made its debut as the official safety car at the Austrian MotoGP Grand Prix in 2019, succeeding the M5.

The BMW M8 F92 represents a harmonious fusion of raw power and refined luxury, raising the bar for performance and design in the world of high-end sports cars.
