After the official launch of the BMW M8, the company launched another version, a sport version M8 Competition. This version is available as a Coupe or a Convertible model.
Both Coupe and Convertible have gotten a few styling tweaks and some performance enhancements, so both models are very specific and special.
The new M8 Competition will have sporty carbon fiber surrounds, a fresh new front bumper and larger air intakes. The large kidney grille is replaced with a much better looking blacked-out grille. And a new rear diffuser with larger air vents and a new spoiler is placed in the back.
And the most important part is the engine. What does this version of BMW M8 have under the hood? It has the same 4.4-liter V8 engine, but they tuned it so it delivers a bit more power. These two M8 Competition models will have 625 hp, which is a bit more than the standard version. It has an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission and an M-specific xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The system will come with three configurable modes: 4WD, 4WD Sport, and 2WD.
The M8 Competition Coupe will hit 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds faster than the regular M8 model.
The chassis will also have some new stuff, like the new performance-optimized dampers, new bracing elements, and updated suspension settings. The engine mounts will be stiffer and the chamber at the front is also improved and increased.
Something that hasn’t changed is the braking system, but it will have two selectable setting, Sport and Comfort.
And when it comes to the interior, the BMW M8 Competition will have the latest M-Sport steering wheel, M-Sport seats, stainless steel pedals, and a new M-Sport digital instrument display. It will also have a new M-Sport gear lever and a special M-specific graphics for the infotainment system.
There isn’t any official information about the price of the BMW M8 Competition, but it is supposed to be the most expensive M car ever.
