The high-performance version of the Bavarian BMW M8 coupe in a more powerful version of the Competition was introduced in Japan. Home sales are scheduled for autumn this year.

Finally, a long-awaited event for many fans of the Bavarian automobile brand has happened – quite recently in Japan, as part of a special event, the high-performance BMW M8 coupe, and not just the M8, but the more powerful version of the Competition was presented. The long-awaited novelty, which is positioned as the car of the 2020 model year, will go on sale this fall.

BMW M8 Competition boasts a powerful engine with a displacement of 4.4 liters, the power of which is designed for 625 horsepower and torque is 553 Nm.

Unfortunately, the brand representatives didn’t tell about the dynamic characteristics of their new product, but according to rumors, the car can easily accelerate to the first 100 kmh in about 2 seconds. I must say that not all supercars can boast this indicator, and hypercars too.

Engineers made some pretty significant changes to the design of a more powerful version of their flagship coupe. BMW M8 Competition received a transverse strut, which further increases body rigidity, durable stabilizer, and the chassis and suspension of the car received significant changes – they got a more sporty character. Also worth noting are the elements of the updated exterior, which is understandable, now looks more aggressive. We are talking about the rear spoiler, carbon body side mirrors, as well as the revised front and rear bumper and a completely carbon roof. In the salon there were sports seats with lumbar support, even more elements of carbon and Alcantara, the steering wheel covered with high-quality leather and the same Alcantara.
