Future drivers of the new M8 will also be able to switch between rear-wheel drive and rear-wheel-drive modes only. This is due to the fact that the torque vector power delivery can change completely depending on the driving situation and the wishes of the driver.
The car also has an electronically controlled M differential while the gears are 7 forward 1 back fully automatic. The chassis and body structure, which is specially tuned for the M series, adds elegance to the elegance of the M8.
In the following images, we see that the test device that appeared in Estoril still has a camouflage; the reason for this is that the final touches are still being made. While the BMW M8 Coupe is expected to be officially introduced in Frankfurt in September 2019, we will also see a 4-door convertible Gran Coupe.
Even though BMW didn’t share any other performance-related information, except for its power output, Autocar has a few ideas about the issue: the M8’s center of gravity will be 24 mm lower than the M5, while the 0-100 time is less than 3.4 seconds. The highest speed will be over 300 km / h, while the V8 engine will be 650 hp.
