2020 BMW M8 Competition Does A Strip Tease In South Africa

Several new pictures of the 2020 BMW M8 Competition have surfaced online.

Noticed by BMW Blog, the images were apparently taken in South Africa while the car was being shipped. Regardless, they provide a pretty revealing look at the car’s front fascia and rear end.

Starting front, the M8 Competition has been equipped with a unique bumper which is decidedly more aggressive than the one used on the M850i. It features three large air intakes with mesh inserts and gloss black scoops out the outside edges.

The model also has a revised gloss black grille which should aid in cooling the car’s twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine. Further below, we can see what appears to be a carbon fiber front splitter.

Styling changes are else noticeable at the rear, but the M8 Competition has a four-tailpipe exhaust system instead of the usual dual exhaust setup. The model also has a subtlety revised bumper and triangular reflectors which are located where the vents on the M850i are. Last but not least, the M8 adopts a unique rear diffuser with a gloss black finish.

BMW has been tight-lipped about performance specifications, but the M8 Competition is expected to use the same twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 that powers the M5 Competition. This means the coupe should have at least 617 hp (460 kW / 625 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.

While BMW hasn’t confirmed those numbers, the company has already revealed the M8 Coupe and Convertible will have an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and an M xDrive system with 2WD, 4WD and 4WD Sport modes. The model will also have a new setup button on the center console which provides easy access to adjusting the engine, suspension, brakes, steering and all-wheel drive settings.
