The BMW M8 Coupe is available in a single trim and comes standard in Competition specification. The M8 Coupe is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine producing 617 horsepower. Power is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The exterior features lightweight 20-inch alloy wheels, a carbon-fiber roof, and soft-close doors. On the inside, BMW offers standard M power-adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation, dual-zone climate control, ambient lighting, and a 12.3-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Wi-Fi connectivity, and SiriusXM radio. A 12.3-inch driver display and a head-up display are also standard. Emergency braking and lane departure assist are some of the standard driver assistance features on offer.
As it is already highly specified as standard, there are only a few packages. For just $100, the Driving Assistance Package comes with the Active Driving Assistant and features like pedestrian and forward collision warning with city collision management, an automatic parking assistant, active blind-spot detection, and a surround-view camera with 3D view. For $1,700, you can add the Driving Assistance Professional Package to this which introduces various systems relying on cameras and radar to assist the driver at maintaining a safe distance from other cars.
The M Driver's Package costs $2,500 and unlocks a raised top speed limiter, while also giving customers a day-long high-speed driving course at a BMW Performance Center. Nothing screams performance like carbon fiber, so many will probably opt for the $5,400 M Carbon Exterior Package which adds carbon fiber to the rear spoiler, tailpipe finishers, mirror caps, and more.
Among standalone options, the $4,500 M Carbon bucket seats and $3,400 Bowers & Wilkins Diamond sound system are the ones to look out for.
