BMW's M division certainly knows how to build driver-focused sports cars. This though, is something slightly different - a larger, more luxurious driver-focused GT. Offered in Coupe, four-door Gran Coupe or, as in this case, Convertible form, it delivers masterful performance - on a major scale. If you must have the ultimate BMW, then this may well be it.
It's tempting to think of this model as nothing more than an M5 saloon in a more sporting suit. After all, it shares the same 625hp V8 twin-turbo engine, much of the same M Division technology and, as a result, pretty much the same performance figures. BMW though, thinks differently, pointing out that this car has a stiffer set-up, a shorter wheelbase body and cleaves a cleaner path through the air.
Whatever your perspective though, this M8 Competition model, available in Coupe, Gran Coupe or Convertible form, looks to be a devastatingly effective piece of high performance engineering. The kind of car in which, for instance, you might drive to the Alps - but take in the Nurburgring on the way. Developed in parallel with the M8 GTE endurance racing car, it's a force to be reckoned with.
