There is a base M8. The Competition is a package option.

There is a base M8. The Competition is a package option.
BMW AG and NA are heavily promoting the $13k competition package and as I suspect most orders will be for the base M8. Unless the tweaks for the competition model blow away the reviewers compared to the base M8. Will BMW AG/NA even allow the auto press to compare the two or just make the competition models available when the journalists test/review latter this year?

Looks to be the same w/ the X3/4 M, most reviews I believe focused on the Competition models.

Great news The faster BMW starts producing the 850 GC, the faster I will buy one at over 60% off MSRP in just a few years (even though the 650 GC was a more beautiful, unique design).

All wheel drive and dynamics.

My biggest anticipation is the body kits. Vorsteiner in particular.

How y'all feel about a wing on the M8C?

Foreshadow with me. Imagine the M8 GTS?

Does BMW really need a hyper/super car?

All this comes to mind just thinking about what I'm seeing.

A Metal Maddening Masterpiece!

I love ///M!!!
Looking at how BMW has gone with the M8 competition in terms of performance, I would say that they have gone in the right direction. A BMW Supercar would not have sustainable sales. If I wanted a supercar for brand snob appeal, I would look at the exotic car brands instead of BMW, Audi or Merc.

The M8 Competition Convertible does look very handsome indeed.....

This is BMW doing things right... holy crap that is a beautiful car.

Honestly it's first six figure BMW I could actually see myself in. Granted I will probably wait a couple years and let someone else take the depreciation hit. But the GC is quite frankly stunning from every angle. I hope the design language is what we can expect to see more of coming from BMW in the future.
