4300lb ultimate M car?? Seriously?? Luxobarge, nothing close to Motorsport. I cant believe how porky this thing is compared to my former S85 E63. +400lbs, with only +95hp, and a slushbox vs SMG.
Nothing close to Ultimate here👎

OR.

Before jumping to paper-racer conclusions, we COULD wait until someone actually drives it ...

There is no amount of technology that can compensate for physics. He has a point. The car may be great in its own respects but calling it the ultimate M car would be an insult to Motorsport

Correct, my comment has nothing to do with the hp numbers, ive owed 4 6ers including the S85 M6, this 8er may have bigger hp numbers but could never compare to the former iterations. Yes its luxury with lots of tech, but no its not Motorsport.

Agreed. Why can't the ultimate M car be a 600 hp small coupe that weighs at most 3,300 lbs?

It's disappointing I agree. It will crush a Bentley in terms of performance though. If that's what they were shooting for they succeeded I guess.
