Not a fan of Donnington but it sure looks good on the M8GC Comp.

TF is that gigantic plastic thing on the rear wheel arch? Something for some countries but not all, or just something sitting on the car during the build?

It's just the protection which will be taken off

Nope. There are 3 variations of this depending on which country the vehicle is being produced for based on country regulations.

I dont know which countries they specifically apply to but below is limited summary

1) US - no rear wheel well plastic
2) UK (or at least some parts of Europe) - short (~2-4") strip near 10 o'clock position
3) Some other Euro / Asian countries - long strip seen in the above photos.

Every major redesign will create both proponents and opponents. M8 GC may not be for everyone. I would own one without reservations.

That is a sharp looking car, the Donington looks good, can't wait to see it in Marina Bay Blue in person.

They extended the CF boot lid spoiler. Is it me or it's a space underneath?

I saw that also, I think it's an illusion.

One of the best looking sedans ever made.

Weirdly enough, it's competitors are equally as good looking.

Hmmm, looks very cool. May consider this for my wife to drive kids to school. Not that color though. Something more like lizard green.

We got our M850 GC in and I have to say it looks better in pictures. The opposite of the coupe. the C pillar ruins the flow of the car. I have no clue why they squared it off on the GC but had it come to a point with the coupe. It looks so much better and more fluid on the coupe.

Love the built in duck-tail spoiler from the concept. I saw an M850GC in Black Sapphire Metallic and I think it actually looks really good all blacked out!

I love it but for the price point of $140-$150k is crazy, so many other cars that are more enticing and hold value better.
