The car took off in one of the turns and crashed into the road fence. No one was injured in the accident.

During the test tests of the prototype BMW M8 supercar at the Nurburgring, an incident occurred. In one of the turns the car flew off the road and hit the fence. No one was injured in the accident. The photographs show that the car was seriously damaged – most likely, the accident occurred at high speed.

Among the damages, we note the suspension, the dent on the driver’s door, as well as impact marks in the front. After the accident, the car was quickly put on a cover and evacuated. This instance has already been seen during tests, after which it immediately aroused great interest. The main feature was the not quite standard arrangement of the air intakes, which suggested a mid-engine layout.

According to another version, it was a prototype in a standard BMW M8 body and was used to test new parts and assemblies.
Some time ago, BMW said there were no plans to release a mid-engined M8 supercar at the moment.

Earlier it became known that BMW has no plans to sell the 2021 M8 model in coupe and convertible bodies. This decision is explained by the remains of cars in dealer warehouses due to the coronavirus epidemic. However, in the future, the sale of such machines may be resumed.
