Featuring up to 617 hp and industry-first adjustable braking, these six-figure coupe and convertible models deliver “near-supercar” performance.
The 2020 BMW M8 Coupe and Convertible have finally arrived, and they’re simultaneously pretty, angry and expensive — just not necessarily in that order. The new two-door, all-wheel-drive range-topping performance twins bring up to 617 horsepower to the party, hitting 60 mph in as little as 3.0 seconds en route to top speed of up to 189 mph. They also cost a heady $133,000 and $142,500 before options and a $995 delivery fee, respectively.
Adding additional brawn to the already impressive BMW 8 Series, all M8 models rely on a new version of the German automaker’s S63 M TwinPower 4.4-liter V8 engine. The powerplant features upgraded turbochargers nestled down in the V of the engine block, along with unique cross-bank exhaust manifolds and ultra-high-pressure fuel injection to help realize 600 hp at 6,000 RPM and a healthy 553 pound-feet of torque from just 1,800 RPM.
