BMW M8 2020 pricing and spec confirmed: Quickest Beemer yet to land Q1 next year

Power in the BMW M8 Competition comes from a 4.4.-lite twin-turbo V8, which enables a 3.2-second 0-100km/h time.

BMW’s debut M8 Competition coupe will blast into Australian showrooms in the first quarter of next year, wearing an eye-watering pricetag of $352,900 before on-road costs.

Powered by the same 460kW/750Nm 4.4-litre twin-turbo petrol V8 as the M5 Competition – and upcoming X5 and X6 M Competition SUV pair – the 8 Series-based M car will sprint from zero to 100km/h in just 3.2 seconds, making it the quickest accelerating production BMW to date.

Power is sent to the road via an eight-speed automatic transmission and xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which ensures the M8 Competition returns a fuel economy rating of 10.4 litres per 100km and emits 239 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre.

As standard, the M8 Competition will come loaded with a smattering of M goodies including a sports exhaust, carbon engine cover, 20-inch lightweight wheels, limited-slip differential, carbon roof, sports seats, branded seat belts, rear spoiler and brakes.

Also included in the asking price is a powered tailgate, keyless entry, soft-close doors, heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel and armrests, all-digital instrumentation, wireless smartphone charger, BMW’s Laserlight headlights and premium sound system.

The multimedia touchscreen system, which measures 10.25 inches, has an option for a Chinese language display, while is also kitted out with digital radio, satellite navigation and on-demand connected services.

As a no-cost option, buyers can choose between four interior trims and seven upholstery finishes, while the M Carbon Ceramic brakes package costs $16,500 and an M Carbon Exterior pack will set buyers back another $10,300.

BMW’s M8 Competition is also available in Convertible and four-door Gran Coupe form, though pricing and specification for those body styles is yet to be revealed.
