Forget M5, BMW’s Greatest Secret Is The M8

By  | 

The M5 may be the next big thing to come from BMW but the car is not going to be the best choice in the carmaker’s line-up. That position is being reserved for an even better vehicle that is being developed by BMW as we speak.

Known as the M8, the car is being built alongside the upcoming 8-Series and it was a massive secret from BMW until today, when the carmaker decided to let out some information on the vehicle.

“The conception and development of the standard BMW 8 Series and the M model run in parallel. The future BMW M8 will build on the genes of the 8 Series and augment its DNA with added track ability and generous extra portions of dynamic sharpness, precision and agility. It all flows into a driving experience that bears the familiar BMW M hallmarks and satisfies our customers’ most exacting requirements.”

This statement was made by BMW’s Frank Van Meel and it can be summed up in three simple words – ‘most insane car’. But of course, BMW did not share on any projected power figures of the M8 hence we can’t gauge on how good the car will be. This will have to wait until the M8 breaks its covers later this year.
