Just when you’re coming down from your BMW Concept 8 high, they hit us with a triple whammy. There’s going to be a BMW M8 and a race spec M8 GTE!
The M8 isn’t a new idea, but for the first time ever it really seems we’re going to be getting one. A while back (in 2010) a secret M8 prototype was unveiled to journalists at the BMW museum. But, by then, the idea was already dead because BMW felt there was no place for it. But in todays world, that thought has changed. Within about 48 hours BMW announced we’re getting a new 8 series with the Concept 8, an M8 & an M8 GTE. I think i need a cigarette, & i don’t even smoke. So what do we know about the car?
