2020 BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe

Like the M8 coupe, there are two versions of the 4.4L twin-turbo V8 available. The standard M8 model has 441kW (591hp) at 6,200rpm, and 750Nm (553 lb-ft) between 1,800 and 5,600rpm. It has a 3.3s 0-100km/h time.

The M8 Competition has a more powerful 460kW (617hp) version, but the same amount of torque. The 0-100km/h time is reduced to 3.2s.

20″ wheels, rear biased AWD and an 8-speed automatic are standard in both variants. Top speed is limited to 250km/h (155mph) or 305km/h (190mph) with the M Driver’s Package.
