BMW M8 Will Have Over 600 HP And All-Wheel Drive

If you're a fan of big smokey skids you'll be pleased to learn the M8 will have a two-wheel drive mode

Fiercest of the BMW 8 Series, the company's luxury grand tourers taking on Porsche and others, the vehicle will deliver more than 600 horsepower, BMW said today. The model also offers an optional carbon fiber roof and we wouldn't be surprised if it is standard on the M8.

It's a healthy uptick from the rest of the 8 Series.

BMW says the M8 will be powered by a high-revving V8 engine that produces "north of" 440kW.

To do that, they each use a turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine, and an 8-speed Steptronic transmission.

Like the aforementioned super-saloon, the M8 will put its power to the road via an M-specific xDrive all-wheel-drive system with a fully-variable but ultimately rearward-biased torque distribution system, and there will be a rear-wheel-drive mode that drivers can dial in for power sliding. Yobbos amongst you will be pleased to know that the M5's two-wheel drive mode also makes it to the M8, BMW promising a "driving experience of absolute purity" with the vehicle "liberated from the shackles of control systems".

The regular 8 Series is very much a GT auto, but we're promised the M8 will be sharper. There'll be M-specific suspension, for more directional stability, precision in the steering, and dynamics in the corners. New details have now been announced by BMW, with the vehicle due at some point in 2019.

But now we're learning a little bit more about the M8 production auto and its powertrain.

It won't be on its own, however.

The 2020 BMW M8 will make its debut in the coming months, and it will go on sale all around the world in 2019. Official introduction of the M8 is said to take place in Frankfurt next September, and the coupe will be followed by a convertible and a four-door Gran Coupe version later.
