Bmw M8 Competition, three variations for a single DNA
For the new M8 Competition Coupé, M8 Competition Cabrio and M8 Competition Gran Coupé the 'three stars' - assuming a parallel between motorsport and culinary art - are therefore more than deserved, if only for the updates that BMW M GmbH will introduce in the range. high-performance luxury sports cars from next spring.
The new 2022 edition of the M8, available in the three body variants, is distinguished by the widening of the exterior color palettes and M alloy wheels and by the additional customization possibilities provided by the M Shadow Line lights, available for the first time. once for the M8 Competition. It should be noted that four new variants of the particularly high-quality Frozen finishes are available, which further highlight the modern design of the M8 models with their satin finishes.
The interior receives new impulses from the integral finish with the Merino / Alcantara leather combination in the new Black / Sakhir Orange color variant, while operating comfort is enhanced by the 12.3-inch touch display of the BMW iDrive system.
Common features of the M8 Competition Coupé, M8 Competition Cabrio and M8 Competition Gran Coupé are the chassis technology designed for an extremely exciting driving experience and the qualities - in terms of power delivery but also the pleasantness of its use - provided by the engine V8 with 625 hp M TwinPower Turbo technology with maximum torque of 750 Nm.
The typical 'M' character of this petrol engine - with a unique and satisfying sound - can be optimally exploited on the road via the 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic and M xDrive all-wheel drive system.
Precise coordination between these elements allows for thrilling sporty driving and performance worthy of a supercar, such as acceleration from standstill to 100 km / h in just 3.2 seconds (M8 Competition Coupé and M8 Competition Gran Coupé) or 3.3 seconds (M8 Competition Cabriolet).
These 'three-star' models are also distinguished by the chassis technology developed with racing know-how and in particular with the experience gained during the development of the BMW M8 GTE. There are electronically controlled shock absorbers and an electromechanical M Servotronic steering system, as well as an integrated brake system that allows for the choice of two pedal 'responses'.
The driving stability system DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) allows the driver to activate the M Dynamic mode, which allows greater wheel slip. In combination with the rear-wheel drive setting of the M xDrive, it is possible to experience particularly exhilarating driving maneuvers such as power oversteer and hydro-watering.
Recall that the configuration button on the center console allows direct access to the settings of the engine, shock absorber, steering, M xDrive and braking system. Two variants of the individually created M Setup can be permanently stored together with your preferred settings for sound, shift characteristics, driving stability control and the Auto Start Stop function.
As an alternative to the standard M Compound brake system, optional M Carbon ceramic discs are available.
The standard equipment of the new BMW M8 also includes 20-inch M light alloy wheels equipped with high-performance tires in the sizes 275/35 R 20 front and 285/35 R 20 rear.
