It is no secret that the BMW M8 Competition is extremely fast but is it as capable as it is quick around a circuit?
Well, German publication Sport Auto got hold of a brand new M8 Competition for some testing and managed to set a monstrously quick 7:32,79 lap time on the Green Hell. That not only makes it three seconds quicker than its four-door sibling (M5) but also puts it in the same league as the track-focused Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 (7:32). Pretty damn impressive for a 1.8-ton grand tourer.
As a reminder, the M8 Competition packs a twin-turbo V8 making 617 hp (460 kW) which is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic and a trick M-developed xDrive system.
