BMW will soon be tearing the camouflage off its M8 Coupé

New BMW M8 Confirmed With Over 591HP V8 And AWD The BMW M8 Will Belt Out 650bhp In Its Shoutiest Form

As we'd been expecting, it'll use the same 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 as the M5. When the camo comes off, we'll see just how far north that is.

Like the aforementioned super-saloon, the M8 will put its power to the road via an M-specific xDrive all-wheel-drive system with a fully-variable but ultimately rearward-biased torque distribution system, and there will be a rear-wheel-drive mode that drivers can dial in for power sliding. There's the electronically controlled M differential as well, and the sole available gearbox is the eight-speed automatic.

The upgrades will also find their way to the chassis as the company has confirmed they were able to increase the rigidity of the body structure, chassis components and chassis mounting points.

In the photo gallery above, the test auto shown at Estoril still wears spy camouflage, but it's clear there's just the handling prowess to be fine-tuned - the rest of the package appears quite complete, down to the quad pipes.

Official market launch of the BMW M8 Coupe is expected in 2019 followed by derivatives of the model: the BMW M8 Convertible and the BMW Gran Coupe.

It's no surprise BMW is building an M version of its 8 Series, even releasing the M8 GTE long before the production base model just so it could go racing. In comparison, the less-hardcore M850i takes 3.7 seconds to reach 62 miles per hour, which is hardly slow. On that note, BMW has yet to confirm whether there will be a Competition version of the M8, but it's hard to imagine why not.
