2022 BMW M8 Competition Range Revealed

BMW Group has updated its M8 range for the North American market, as it brings about tweaks, both to the externals and the internals of the M8 Competition Coupe, M8 Competition Convertible, and the M8 Competition Gran Coupe. In its 2022 avatar, the high-performance versions of the BMW 8 Series, feature new exterior colors, a new 12.3-inch central display, new M-specific inserts, M-specific bucket seats, and a few optional features as well, to give a breath of freshness to the complete BMW M8 range. Likewise, this update also marks the end of the non-Competition versions of these models.

Getting straight off to the figures, the BMW M8 Competition Coupe, Convertible, and Gran Coupe are powered by a 4.4-litre, V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo that develops 617bhp and 750 Nm of peak torque, while the transmission duties are handled by an 8-speed M Steptronic unit, sending power to all the wheels, which allows the performance vehicle to accelerate to 100kmph in blistering 3 seconds and tops up at 306kmph, with the M Driver's Package. BMW says the handling of the M8 Competition range is improved slightly with inputs from the M8 GTE racing car, while the Adaptive M Suspension uses data from body movement, road surface conditions, and steering input to adjust each damper individually within milliseconds using electromagnetic valves, making it a capable partner on the asphalt as well as roads.

As far as the exterior goes, the BMW M8 range receives a range of exterior colors such as Skyscraper Grey metallic, Brooklyn Grey metallic, and Isle of Man Green metallic as well as Tanzanite Blue II metallic and Frozen Pure Grey metallic. The other update comes at the front as the Adaptive LED Headlights with Laserlight are now equipped with M Shadowline inserts, dispensing a muscular look, coupled to a high-gloss black frame of the BMW kidney grille. BMW is also offering the BMW Motorsport logo from the 1970s, on the hood, trunk, and wheel hub covers in place of the usual BMW roundels as an option.
