Later on, there might be a 650-horsepower M8 Competition.


Latest 8 Series shows a sportier alternative to the 5 and 7 Series

It looks like a four-door version of the M8 GTE Le Mans racer.


After all, the 8 Series needs a competitor for fire-breathing, six-figure sedans like the 605-horsepower Audi RS7 Sportback and the coming Mercedes-AMG GT4.


This is likely the new M8.

The test track is in Italy, the soundtrack is pure BMW.


The Italian lost both legs in an accident in 2001.

He was a two-time CART champion before his accident.


Here's how it might be powered.

BMW makes it official, the 8 Series Coupe will launch in 2018


This is a factory-backed effort.

It looks like the big coupe can dance.

The car is likely based on the fullsize 7-Series sedan.


A new 8 could mean a repositioned 6 Series.

BMW filed trademark applications for 825, 830, 835, 850, 845, 860, M850, and M8. Seems serious.

Unlike Mercedes-Benz which produces AMG badged versions of just about every model in its lineup, BMW has maintained greater exclusivity with the M badge. Until last year's launch of the X6 M and X5 M, there have only been four M models (not counting the M1), but one M got as far as prototyping and testing, but never produced: The M8.
