BMW M8 Models Refreshed Alongside Standard 8 Series Models

Alongside the BMW 8 Series, the performance-oriented BMW M8 models also get a facelift.

Yesterday, BMW M announced some mid-life cycle changes to the BMW M8, which mirror some of the changes that were also announced for the standard 8 Series models.

These models are all still powered by the 4.4L V8 M TwinPower Turbo engine with 625 horsepower and 750Nm of torque, sending power to all four wheels via an M xDrive all-wheel-drive system and an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission. 0-100km/h takes just 3.2 seconds in the closed roof cars while the Cabriolet version takes 3.3 seconds to achieve the century sprint.
