BMW M8 convertible spotted testing

BMW M8 convertible spotted testing

Besides developing the standard 8 Series, the skunkworks at BMW’s M division are also working flat out on the much-awaited M model. The latter will be available in both coupe and convertible form. While we have already seen the M8 coupe on test before, it’s time for the M8 convertible to take the development route, as seen in these spy pictures. 

The M8 convertible will feature typical M design elements like larger air intakes, modified brakes and a sports exhaust with four tailpipes. The wider track and the aerodynamically optimised body panels will help differentiate it from the standard 8 Series convertible. The entire 8 Series range will be based on the new CLAR platform which currently underpins the new 5 and 7 Series. The 8 Series will be a ‘driver’s car’, asserts the Munich-based carmaker. 

Under the hood, the M8 convertible will get the same 600bhp 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and four-wheel-drive system that was seen in the recently unveiled sixth generation M5.

BMW has trademarked the 825, 830, 835, 850, 845, 860 and M850 monikers, indicating the variants which will be available in the forthcoming 8 Series line-up. The 8 Series is one of the 40 new models that BMW aims to launch by 2019.
