Also at this weekend’s Secret M Town Malaysia is the M8 Coupe and a 4 door version M8 Gran Coupe. Both are based on BMW’s newest GT range but these all-out M versions are powered by 600ps V8 twin turbo from the F90 M5.
3.3 secs / 600ps / 750nm / 4.4L V8 twin turbo (S63) / 8 speed auto M Steptronic / 4WD / 1,885kg + / M8 Coupe RM1,452,960.88 / M8 Gran Coupé RM1,455,145.25
With an immense 750nm worth of torque, both the M8s benefit from an advanced M specific xDrive 4WD traction which can actively send torque between front and rear axles to increase grip during demanding drives, and just like the super saloon M5, the M xDrive system can be switched from 4WD to RWD only provided DSC is offed.
