BMW tests mystical BMW M8 prototypeJune 20, 2020
Last summer, BMW released the M8 coupe and cabriolet, including one made by Competition, so it makes no sense to continue testing prototypes – unless, of course, they plan to release a new version.
This M8 convertible was spotted during tests on the legendary Nurburgring circuit. Camouflage covers most of the exterior, but despite this, the front bumper and radiator grille do not seem to undergo changes compared to current models.
The rear end seems to have been changed – the bumper has a more “clean” look and a more square central section that still contains a license plate. The middle part of the diffuser has a different design, although it may be a plastic overlay designed to be misleading.
According to experts, the Bavarian brand is testing the CS version, which so far lacks a more pronounced spoiler on the trunk lid, along with large air intakes and an apron in front.
New wheels, an exhaust system, bucket seats and the widespread use of carbon fiber will make it lighter than the current M8 Competition, but don’t expect anything too radical.
Recall, the company also continues to develop the M5 CS and the newest car should debut in the coming months. According to reports, the model will receive an improved 4.4-liter Twin-Turbo V8, possibly with moderate electrification, so the alleged M8 CS will follow in its footsteps, with more power than 616 hp. and 750 Nm.
