The new king of the M brand.

Sitting atop the M brand range is BMW's latest entry to their performance line, the M8. Available in a coupe or convertible, the 2020 M8 will be powered by a 4.4L TwinPower Turbo V8 that produces 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque and it will also come in a Competition variant that boosts the output to 617 hp. 0-60 in the coupe happens in 3.1 seconds (3.0 in the Competition) and 3.2 seconds in the Convertible (3.1 in the Competition). Every M8 will have an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph and if you spec it with the M Driver's Package, the number skyrockets to 189 mph. 

The exterior of the car receives a number of updates including large openings in the front bumper to cool the engine, transmission, and brakes, black chrome and high-gloss black elements, a carbon fiber roof, and an optional M Carbon package updates details such as the kidney grille surrounds, mirror, caps, gills, and rear spoiler in carbon fiber. The interior will feature Extended Merino Leather standard, optional Full Merino leather, standard carbon fiber trim, wood and piano black finish options, and an Alcantara headliner in matching upholstery color is also available.
