As one of the leaders in world’s car industry, BMW every year brings plenty of improvements in all aspects. Sometimes it is about new engine, sometime about new platform or other advanced technologies. This time it is about whole new car. There are plenty of rumors that suggest that Bavarian car maker will soon introduce new supercar. In last few months those speculations are even more intense so it is expected that new model will come already in year or two. The name isn’t known yet, but it is expected that it will be called 2016 BMW M8.
2016 BMW M8 design
We still don’t have any picture of this model, so we can only make some predictions. It will definitely be heavily influenced by M1 Homage Concept that was shown in 2008. However, this concept is pretty old, so it is expected that this new supercar will also use many solutions from some newer serial model. When it is about outside look, 2016 BMW M8 will probably combine elements of M1 Homage and BMW i8. You can expect an elegant sculpture with long hood, large air intakes, M1-like headlights, rear diffuser that will help the car stick to the road and many other features. Interior is expected to be in the style of i8. This means that 2016 M8 will have an amazing, very futuristic cockpit equipped with plenty of high-tech features.
2016 BMW M8 engine
This car will definitely be characterized by excellent performances. The exact engine is still unknown, but it is expected that 2016 BMW M8 will be powered with some large V8 turbo engine, which will be able to produce over 600 horses. This amount of power guarantees excellent speed and acceleration. It is expected that 2016 M8 will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 in less than three seconds, while top speed will be over 200 mph.
2016 BMW release date, price and competition
It is still early to make some predictions about potential release date and especially about price. On the other side, when 2016 BMW M8 comes, it is for sure that it will compete models like Audi R8 GT or Mercedes SLS GT.
