On the Nürburgring race track, prototypes of the high-performance M8 (coupe), M8 Convertible (convertible) and M8 Gran Coupe (4-door coupe) were seen at the same time. Official data on the timing of the presentation of these new products are still hidden from the public.

Published on the YouTube-channel Automotive Mike, the video begins with a pair of M8 prototypes that run their engines and leave the gas station. None of the drivers seem to be concerned about the next camera, although the aggressive sound of V8 engines under the hood of each car is not so easy to hide. We expect to see under the hood of stock cars a modernized version of the current 4.4-liter V8, the power of which is likely to be more than 600 horsepower. According to rumors, in a more powerful version of the Competition, these engines will be able to produce about 620 hp.

It is noteworthy that those prototypes of the “charged” BMW M8, which were captured on the Nurburgring race track and around it just a couple of hours ago, have much more camouflage than usual.

From the filling station, the action goes directly to the Nürburgring race track, where prototypes show what they are capable of and watching them makes it easy to forget that these are large 2.5-ton cars. The squeal of tires tells us that these are high-speed tests. From the video you can judge that the German news has very good handling.

We could see the M8 debut this summer. At the end of autumn, BMW should introduce a standard 8-series convertible, so the M8 convertible will not appear until next year. The M8 Gran Coupe is likely to be the last of the “charged” trio – will show this car in 2020.
