If the BMW M8 Competition isn't enough car for you, then AC Schnitzer has a solution, and it comes with 710bhp.

AC Schnitzer is renown for modifying BMWs, just think of their 600bhp BMW M850i. This time, they've fiddled with the M8 Competition to find more power and deliver a more aggressive aesthetic.

The German tuner has extracted 710bhp and 627lb ft of torque from the 4.4-litre twin-turbo S63 V8 by tweaking the UCU. This should get the BMW M8 from 0-62mph in less than the 3.2-seconds of the standard car, and up to 190mph at full tilt without adding new hardware to the powertrain.

They also offer a customised free-flow exhaust system with adjustable valves that allows the driver to play with the volume, so they can be loud on the highway and quiet as they sneak back into their neighbourhood. There are also various exhaust tips to suit a variety of tastes.

As expected, AC Schnitzer has created a range of carbon fibre aerodynamic components, including a front splitter, side skirts and rear spoiler. These items have been designed to both look aggressive and be functional, aiding downforce at high speeds.

All-new lightweight forged wheels come in either 20 or 21-inch, with 275-section front and 285-section rear rubber. The gorgeous wheels also come in a variety of shades and have been developed with strength in mind.

The suspension system receives a makeover too, pushing the front wheels 20mm and the rear 15mm closer to the wheel arches.

Hopping inside, and the only tweaks are aluminium shift paddles, pedals and keyholder, otherwise, everything else remains untouched.

No pricing has been announced to date, but all of these modifications will be available on the BMW M8 Coupe, Cabriolet and Grand Coupe.
