5 reasons to buy the 2020 BMW M8

1. Breathtaking speed

The 2020 BMW M8 is a gorgeous 2+2 coupe, but it isn't just a pretty face. Pop the hood and you'll find a standard 4.4L V8 engine putting out a massive 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. That means 60 mph arrives in just three seconds—that is near supercar speed.

2. Pure luxury

Speed without comfort can ruin a road trip, but luckily the 2020 M8 is as comfortable as it is powerful. The standard adaptive suspension smooths out the rough bits and allows you to switch between comfort and sport mode. Naturally, you get standard leather upholstery, and the heated M Sport front seats feature a variety of adjustment options to help you find just the right driving position. So, go check out the 2020 BMW M8 and you just might find your epic road trip companion.

3. The latest technology

In addition to a variety of driver aids like standard forward collision mitigation, the M8 is packed with tech to make your drive even more pleasurable. You can use voice commands or select your favorite playlist via the 10.25-inch touchscreen. You'll also get standard wireless Apple CarPlay® integration and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon® sound system to maximize the fun. If that's not enough, the options list features things like an upgraded Bowers & Wilkins® surround-sound system plus a cool night vision feature with pedestrian detection.

4. Competition trim

The stock 2020 M8 is pretty amazing, but for pure performance, check out the Competition trim. It bumps power from the V8 to up to 617 horsepower and adds trim-specific interior bits, an M Sport exhaust, upgraded wheels, as well as an impressive tuned suspension to make the most of your next track day. However, the BMW engineers made sure to keep the ability to dial things down with comfort mode, meaning you can take a leisurely drive on the way to the paddock next weekend.

5. 12 exterior color options

When you seek out just the right 2020 M8, it's nice to know that you've got options when it comes to the look and feel. Race-inspired color names spice up the experience, and you'll find options like Brands Hatch Gray Metallic and Donington Gray Metallic, both of which pay tribute to motor racing circuits in the United Kingdom. Or perhaps you'll seek out something brighter like Motegi Red Metallic, Barcelona Blue Metallic or Alpine White, rest assured the 2020 M8 has you covered.
