It wouldn’t make sense for BMW to leave the M8 Competition untouched as far as the standard 8 Series’ nip and tuck is concerned.
With that said, the refresh has also applied to the range-topping BMW M8 Competition in its Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe variants but adds a new range that includes the exterior colours such as Skyscraper Grey metallic, Brooklyn Grey metallic and Isle of Man Green metallic as well as the BMW Individual paint finish Tanzanite Blue metallic.
The M8 is equipped with electronically controlled shock absorbers and an electromechanical M Servotronic steering system plus an integrated brake system. Stopping power is provided by a standard M Compound brake system that can be optionally upgraded to M Carbon ceramics.
It runs on standard 20” M light-alloy wheels equipped with high-performance tyres shod with 275/35 R 20 front and 285/35 R 20 at the back. As special equipment, the M8 can be fitted with other M light-alloys in the same format including a new variant in star-spoke design and in bi-colour black/grey version.
The interior features standard M sports seats while M Carbon bucket seats can be fitted as optional extras. For the first time, the M8 Competition models are available in the Black/Sakhir orange colour combination.
BMW's M8 Comp that lives on the edgier side of the performance spectrum features a twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 engine with 460 kW and 750 Nm accessed via an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic as standard.
The local arrival of the refreshed BMW M8 Competition models is slated for the third quarter of 2022.
