The 2020 BMW M8 has been closely under wraps for months now. While spy photos have emerged and the world knew the general outline of the M8, much was left to the imagination. Now, the world has gotten its first glimpse of the 2020 BMW M8 and it’s a real beauty.
The BMW M8 will debut with coupe, cabrio, and competition trims. It’s quite possible BMW will add different trim levels later on but right out of the gate you’ll have a lot of choices. If you’re looking for a convertible, you can even get the competition M8 with a drop top.
The standard M8 will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter V8. This is the same well-regarded engine that’s found in the BMW M5. This engine cranks out 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque.
Meanwhile, the Competition trim pumps out 617 horsepower and additional torque as well. These engines will be paired with eight-speed Steptronic transmissions. Power will be pumped through all four wheels with the xDrive system on board.
The regular 2020 BMW M8 will hit sixty miles per hour in just 3.1 seconds. The competition model will be a tenth of a second faster, while the droptop will be a tenth of a second slower. With performance like that, you’ll be able to keep up with many super cars while still enjoying a roomy, practical car.
Top speed is limited to 155 MPH. However, if you opt for the M Driver’s package, you’ll be able to hit 190 MPH. Best of all, the 2020 BMW M8 starts at a reasonable (by performance car standards) $133,000.
