As well as the development of the new BMW 8 series, BMW M Division are busy at work fine tuning this the BMW M8 prototype.
The President of BMW M Division, Frank van Meel said,
“The conception and development of the standard BMW 8 Series and the M model run in parallel. The future BMW M8 will build on the genes of the 8 Series and augment its DNA with added track ability and generous extra portions of dynamic sharpness, precision and agility. It all flows into a driving experience that bears the familiar BMW M hallmarks and satisfies our customers’ most exacting requirements.”
BMW are not just intent on producing a fast road car. They are making a race come back to Le Mans.
“The BMW M8 GTE development programme for our Le Mans comeback is in full swing. Developing a new racing car is always exciting, and in the case of the BMW M8 GTE the anticipation is that much greater still. We can’t reveal any pictures yet, but I can promise you that the BMW M8 GTE will look spectacular. We are planning an initial roll-out for the first half of this year and are looking at giving the car its race debut in the Daytona 24 Hours in late January 2018.”
Said Jens Marquardt, BMW Motorsport Director.
