BMW M8 Gets New Carbon Fiber Seats

Industry News / 5 Comments

For a more engaging experience.

The new BMW M5 CS might be stealing the headlines, but the rest of the M car lineup is still receiving some well-deserved attention with BMW announcing a slew of parts for the new year, such as an M Carbon roof in the BMW 3 Series and BMW 4 Series. The M8, which we already know is an insanely fast car is also getting some attention in the form of a set of new carbon fiber seats which will reduce weight and increase driver confidence on the track. According to BMW, the new seats are "a particularly attractive addition to the range of optional extras for the BMW M8 models, and allows customers to experience the fascinating performance characteristics of the high-performance sports cars even more intensively."

The newly available carbon-fiber seats will be available for the BMW M8 Competition Coupe, the BMW M8 Competition Convertible, and the BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe from March 2021. The same carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) material used to shed 230 pounds off of the new M5 Cs has been used in the construction of the new seats and features integrated headrests with openings in the shoulder and side sections for multi-point seat belts.

These seats might be hardcore, but BMW still offers them with power-adjustability for height, tilt, and forward and back positioning. To make things even better, the inclination and width of the backrests can be adjusted at the touch of a button.

The seats are heated and upholstered in leather and Alcantara for a typically premium BMW feel. Illuminated "M8" lettering on the headrests let you know exactly where you're sitting, and the driver's side seat also features a memory system. The BMW M8 currently sells for $133,000 and while pricing for these new options has not been made available, we do know that all new models will be available from the start of production in March 2021.
