Looks like we have a concept car already. LOL that was fast.





Here is the backstory. BMW got wind of this and wanted to have a go at it.

No way it would approach $400k. $250k tops. Would really be a nice addition to the Mclaren/458 space.

A Rolls Royce is the exact opposite of what we want out of an M supercar, if BMW seriously thinks the Wraith and i8 count as supercars then it really has lots its way.
I think Scott26 is hinting that the M8 will be based on the same platform/engine as the upcoming RR Wraith.

If Mclaren and Ferrari can build an entry level exotic for $250k, BMW can surely put a revised S63 into an i8 chassis for less than that, right?

I think what Scott26 is saying is that there is no truth to the rumors... If you want an M8 buy the Rolls Wraith.

That's how I understood his comment, too. Sad.

From the Scott's comment I understood that the M8 will not have a V12...
But it's quite a long period untill all the details of this car will be put together
The next RR V12 (supercar) will be somehow a rival for the Bentley Speed, but much more exclusive

+1. BMW needs more than just 349 bhp - no how much instant torque an electric motor has.
