BMW has announced the new M8-flagship, which is the replacement for the 6-series. The BMW M8 will be released at the end of 2018. The new M8 will replace the current M6 coupe and convertible models and will share its drivetrain with the new forthcoming M5.
This means a new generation of the familiar 4.4-litre V8 bi-turbo as currently installed in the current M6 with a peak power output expected to be above that of the 607bhp of the new M5.
Aesthetically in the video below, the prototype gives a good look at what the latest version of the 8-series will look like. The prototype hints a subtle shape, with smaller wheels and a higher nose. Check it out for yourself!
