BMW M8 Configurator Lets You Spec The Hyper GT To Your Heart’s Desire

Almost a week after its launch, the BMW M8 can now be specced online to each individual’s taste.

Available here and here for the M8 Coupe and M8 Convertible, respectively, the online configurators are for the Swiss market – which will have to do for the moment.

With a local starting price of CHF 203,520 (equal to $205,927/€181,656), the M8 Coupe can be equipped with a generous range of optional extras. The list is quite long and includes, aside from the usual packages, the exterior color, which can also be from BMW Individual, and five wheel patterns, 19- and 20-inch in size.

Once you’ve decided on how you want it to look on the outside, you’ll be taken inside to choose the leather color and other trim. From here on, things will get even more expensive if you decide to check the double-stitching for the upholstery, Harman Kardon or Bowers & Wilkins premium sound systems, TV Function Plus, active front-seat ventilation and so on. The carbon-ceramic brakes and others can also be selected right after.

The M8 Convertible starts from CHF 210,900 ($213,394/€188,243) and comes with almost identical styling and technical extras as its fixed-roof sibling.

Both body styles are powered by the same 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V8 that kicks out 600 PS (592 hp / 441 kW) in standard form and 625 PS (616 hp / 460 kW) in Competition guise and is paired to an 8-speed auto transmission and xDrive all-wheel drive.

Now, deciding on the best combo depends on a number of factors, but we’d be tempted to stick to the classic colors, and black does seem to suit it quite nicely, along with a pair of 20-inch wheels.

You can’t go wrong with black on black, so that’s the main color we’d choose inside as well in either of the two cars. But what tickles your fancy best? Let us know how you’d spec your M8, and don’t be afraid of the foreign language, as the configurators are very easy to use even by non-German speakers.
