Looks awesome, can't wait to see it without the camo and what the engine stats will be.

They should put a massive NA V12 on that beast.

BMW will sell each and every one of M8 vehicles produced. I would like to see M8 drivetrain evolve closer to Porsche 918 design with electric motors working independently to provide unequaled performance when pulling out and accelerating out of the turn. Price is another debate of course.

Do I hear ASD? I wonder how it sounds without it. Maybe they should buy a camera outside the car...

We were told that 8 Series has no active sound.

And yet, no MT/DCT transmission, right?

What’s the point of selling your soul (FWD, 2 series minivan, etc.) if you can’t get a real transmission in the supposed “flagship” M car?

The F80, F82, and M2C (and CS/CSL) seem to be the end of an era...

Promising

Despite the crying tyres, the cornering looks flat and precise and the thrust between looks rapid enough to worry some fast cars out there.

It would be interesting to compare any lap times on this amazing circuit with other manufacturers who have tested and launched there.

y'all are hard to please. RWD, V12, 6 Speed... not what this thing is about. S63 Coupe as a competitor and its right in line with it with what it offers. Excited to see them head to head.

So I was in the Gas Lamp district of San Diego a couple of nights ago and saw an M8 convertible test mule.

Immediately recognized it. Only able to grab a couple of crappy pics.
Had distributor plates.

Here you goL

Based on wheels looks like the M850i convertible prepro that the magazine writers have been in.

Then they should stick with M6 instead of rebadging as M8 and replacing 6 series with that ridiculous wagon. 850csi was special for the very features you mentioned.

Caring too much about competition isn't really class leading. This is one vehicle I really hope they make it distinctive. BMW M doesn't have many shots left..
