The new BMW M8 Competition Coupe sports the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW M for a production model, and is now available in Singapore.

12 Jan 2020 | Local News : Singapore


BMW Asia, Performance Motors Limited and Performance Munich Autos have launched the first-ever BMW M8 Competition Coupe at the 2020 Singapore Motorshow.

With 616bhp, the BMW M8 Competition Coupe features the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW M for a production model
The new BMW M high-performance version takes the BMW 8 Series model range to an even higher level of performance, delivering supreme performance and an unmistakable blend of dynamism, agility, and precision.

The first-ever BMW M8 Competition Coupe is a 2+2 seater and benefits from the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW M for a production model - the 4.4-litre V8 with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology here develops 616bhp.

The high-performance power unit teams up with an eight-speed automatic M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, harnessing the engine's power to maximum effect before it is channelled to the road via the M xDrive all-wheel drive system. The rear-wheel bias of M xDrive in this application will deliver grin-inducing and assured handling, with optimised traction when the driver enters the dynamic red zone.

The BMW M8 Competition Coupe has been tested and honed at various race circuits around the world
The chassis technology has been designed and tuned specially for the M8 Competition Coupe, with the specific demands of track use in mind. One of the standout features of the chassis is a newly developed M-specific integrated braking system that presents the driver with two different brake pedal feel settings.

The precise interaction between powertrain, chassis technology, and aerodynamics has been carefully honed over the course of intensive testing at the BMW Group's test track in Miramas in southern France, the winter testing centre in Arjeplog, Sweden and the Nurburgring's Nordschleife circuit, along with other race circuits.

Experience collected from the development of the BMW M8 GTE racing car also played a role in the M8 Competition Coupe's configuration process. The performance-focused character of the engine, transmission and chassis allows the first-ever BMW M8 Competition Coupe to sprint from 0-100km/h in an astounding 3.2 seconds.

High-gloss Black grille surround and model lettering, as well as the BMW Laserlights with Selective Beam, distinguish M8 Competition Coupe
Character-defining features that set the BMW M8 Competition Coupe apart include the double-bubble contour of its carbon fibre-reinforced plastic roof, reminiscent of classic racing cars.

Large air intakes and the BMW kidney grille with familiar M double bars at the front end, lavishly flared front wheel arches, M gills in the front side panels, aerodynamically optimised exterior mirrors, a rear spoiler and a rear apron with diffuser elements in a contrasting colour all also create a fitting visual showcase for the dynamic potential and exclusive status of the new M car.

A signature element on the BMW M8 Competition Coupe is the High-gloss Black grille surround and model lettering, as well as the BMW Laserlights with Selective Beam. Standard specification also includes 20-inch forged M light-alloy wheels in a Star-spoke style, fitted with 275/35 tyres at the front and 285/35 tyres at the rear.
