OVERVIEW OF DRIVE TRAIN AND CHASSIS TECHNOLOGIES INSPIRED BY MOTORSPORT

Numerous highly developed drive train and chassis components inspired by motorsports provide more performance, more agility and more precision – and hence more adrenaline-charged driving pleasure.
BMW M8 Competition Convertible, high-performance M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine.

High-performance M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine.

The latest version of the high-performance M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine guarantees performance in keeping with the latest standards. The high-revving unit develops an output of 460 kW (625 hp). The two turbochargers stand out thanks to their cross-cylinder bank exhaust manifold with optimum response characteristics. The V8 engine is also designed for extreme loads on the race track.
BMW M8 Competition Convertible with Adaptive M suspension.

Adaptive M suspension.

The Adaptive M suspension makes it possible to adjust the damper characteristics to suit any given driving situation, increasing driving dynamics and comfort. In addition to the standard COMFORT setting for increased driving comfort, the SPORT programme offers firmer damper settings, and with SPORT+, the vehicle can be used on the race track.
BMW M8 Competition Convertible with M xDrive.

M xDrive.

BMW M xDrive with Active M differential guarantees maximum traction and driving dynamics for everyday driving, as well as at the racetrack. The M specific technology combines the typical agility of a rear-wheel drive with the control of an all-wheel drive. You can choose between the drive variants 4WD, 4WD Sport and – in DSC-off mode – 2WD.
BMW M8 Competition Convertible with 8-speed M Steptronic transmission.

8-speed M Steptronic transmission.

The 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic offers numerous shifting options: from extremely dynamic to particularly comfortable, and smooth to fuel-saving. You can shift manually using the gear lever or the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel, or put the vehicle into automatic mode and let the transmission do the work.
BMW M8 Competition Convertible with M Carbon ceramic brake.

M Carbon ceramic brake.

With the optional M Carbon ceramic brake, the use of braking power is even more direct, it is corrosion-free, even more heat-resistant, greatly reduced in wear and contributes to weight savings, which has a positive effect on agility, dynamics and acceleration. The special technical equipment is visible through calipers in the colour gold matt with M lettering on the outside. Due to specific material properties, increased operating noise may occur during braking, e.g. in case of prolonged, low load or in wet conditions shortly before vehicle standstill. The design-related noise can be avoided by braking the brake dry in case of wetness or loading the brake more heavily after a long low braking load. The influence of wetness and road salt cause brake effectiveness to correspond to that of a conventional brake system. This reduced braking power can be compensated for with a greater pressure on the pedal. The functional noises have no influence on the performance, operational safety and stability of the brake.
BMW M8 Competition Convertible with M MODE.

M MODE.

Use the M MODE button on the centre console to adjust the control intensity of the driver assistance systems. The ROAD mode offers the full range of functions of the electronic assistants. In the SPORT setting, they only warn but do not intervene. With TRACK, you can completely deactivate the assistance systems, e.g. on the race track. Depending on the selected mode, the display network also shows the corresponding driving information.
BMW M8 Competition Convertible with configurable M brake.

Configurable M brake.

Integrated braking system with precise pedal feel and M specific configurability. The new system brings together the brake activation, brake booster and braking control functions within a compact module. It also presents the driver with two pedal feel settings – COMFORT and SPORT modes alter the amount of pressure on the brake pedal required to slow the car.
BMW M8 Competition Convertible with M Sport exhaust system.

M Sport exhaust system.

The M Sport exhaust system delivers a dynamic sound that can be modified via the integrated exhaust valve mechanism. The SPORT and SPORT+ programmes, which can be selected via the Driving dynamics buttons, are accentuated by an even more intense engine sound, while the comfort-oriented programme prioritises more discreet engine acoustics.
