If the regular BMW 8-series wasn’t fun enough for you, then lo and behold one of the most powerful BMW M-series cars, the flagship 2020 M8 and M8 Competition. Capitalizing on the performance front with its standard 600 hp turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine, a track-focused suspension setup, and a 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 3 seconds flat, the fastest BMW in 2020 is available in all Coupe, 4-door Gran Coupe, and Convertible variants. Introduced this year itself as a completely new model, the $133,000 priced 2020 BMW M8 Coupe gets an impressive list of standard features along with various other performance and exterior enhancement packages.

2020 BMW M8 For Sale-

The 2020 BMW M8 starts at the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $133,000 for the base variant. This makes it one of the cheapest luxury coupes in the segment. The M8 Competiton is priced at a steep $146,000, courtesy of the advanced feature list and also the tuned-up base engine setup. The 2020 M8 Convertible, on the other hand, is priced at $142,500. The value of a Used 2020 BMW M8 ranges from anywhere between 100,000 to 135,000, depending on the vehicle's condition, mileage, features on offer, and the location. Further discounts can also be had depending on the color and the features you choose.

2020 BMW M8 Buying Advice-

While the base trim in itself is good enough, the exhilarating 617 hp 4.4L V8 in the 2020 M8 Competition is the variant to go for. On the other hand, buyers looking for a luxury sports car with an impressive practicality quotient should go for the 2020 M8 Gran Coupe variant. The BMW M8 is still in its first generation which spans from 2020 to 2022 while missing out on a 2021 MY. Furthermore, we'd recommend you to opt for the 2022 BMW M8, as not only does it come in a single Competition variant, it is priced relatively cheaper than the 2020 MY.

The impressive M8 Coupe's interior design is not that different from the rest of the 8-Series range, with it being beautifully crafted with customizable materials, ambient lighting, plenty of upscale tech features, and decent passenger space on offer too. Coming onto the competitors, while both the Mercedes-Benz AMG S63 and the Audi R8 are more expensive than the Bimmer, the on-sale 2020 M8 Coupe shines in terms of better driving dynamics, best-in-class acceleration times, and better practicality quotient, whereas the less expensive Jaguar F-Type SVR has its own perks including on the exterior design front.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

Based on the regular 8-series, the 2020 BMW M8 Coupe brings a lot of changes both under the hood and aesthetically, to help it stand out. Obviously, all of this sweetness doesn’t come for cheap as the all-new M8 coupe is priced at $133,00 and the M8 Competition charges $146,000. Producing power of behemoth proportions, the M8 is not just meant to grace the track in utter style, but also provides luxury and a grand tourer-like authority. It has to spar against the likes of Mercedes-Benz AMG S 63, Audi R8, and Jaguar F-Type SVR.


Buying Advice

If you are someone who can spend over $133k, then we reckon you wouldn’t have an issue spending more. Therefore, it is best to get the 2020 M8 Competition, as it is the outright most powerful 8-series and will never fail to keep you entertained on the road. It has more “M” enhancing charachteristics inside it, alongside brutal performance and styling. The ride is also more comfortable. Finally, there are driver assistance packages for upgrades and more safety aids.

Features
8.0/10

The German high-performance 2020 BMW M8 comes as a coupe, obviously, but it also is offered as a convertible and a Gran Coupe version. The two trims on offer are – M8 and M8 Competition. The M8 carrying the Competition badge is obviously meant to be the all-out, no-compromise version with blistering performance. The $133,000 Base trim gets the 4.4L twin-turbo engine that produces 600 hp while the $146,000 M8 Competition advances to 617 hp with the same capacity. On top of that, the Base has been adorned with the Seat massage comfort with Merino leatherette. The Competition extends the features list with the shadow line trim and M Sport exhaust.

Alongside all these features, there are also additional packages that you can upgrade to. The Driver Assistance Package comes with features such as lane departure warning, active park distance control, surround-view w/ 3D view, rearview camera, etc. The Driver Assistance Package 2 has lesser features, with them being more or less the same. Finally, there is the Driving Assistance Professional Package with adaptive cruise control, active lane-keeping assistant w/ side collision avoidance, traffic jam assistant, etc.

Engine and Performance
8.0/10

The 2020 BMW M8 Coupe is powered by a high-performance 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 that pumps out a monstrous 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. The Competition’s powerplant is specifically tuned to bring out 617 horses while keeping the torque figures the same. The powertrain unit is coupled to a ZF eight-speed automatic which is every bit as exciting as it sounds.

As standard, it comes with AWD, but if you turn stability control completely off, the front wheels are detached from the drivetrain, and the power is only delivered to the rear wheels. The base 2020 BMW M8 version can inject adrenaline into your bloodstream with a 0-60 MPH in just 3.1 seconds, while the Competition variant takes you to the same in 3 seconds flat. With a quarter-mile timing of 11.4 seconds and a top speed of 190 MPH, the Bimmer is every bit as agile. The M8 handles just as well as it performs. The steering is direct and you can feel every feedback. The car is very agile and features dynamic damper control to offer excellent ride comfort. You can barely feel the bumps on the road.

The car is heavy, so when you try hard cornering, you can actually feel a slight body lean. It is not an outright track demolisher, but a grand tourer with priorities being best driven at city or highway. Around turns, it can move smoothly and swiftly. In a straight line too, it is a beast. Perhaps the only downfall is the way the brake pedal feels, which is not the most compliant. The BMW M8 Coupe comes with big 15.6” front rotors and 15” rear rotor brakes. It comes with some impressive features such as brake drying for better wet-weather stopping, brake-fade compensation, and also a brake cornering system.

Fuel Economy
4.0/10

The 2020 BMW M8 comes with an EPA estimate of 15 MPG for the city, 21 MPG for the highway, and 17 MPG for combined driving, with the base model. The M8 Competition also returns similar figures, despite the rise in its power performance curve. The gas tank is 20.1-gallons, which seems to be undersized when compared to the competition, as it can haul you not more than 341 miles on average. The blistering speed and performance obviously mean that the German coupe is not going to be very fuel-efficient.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG S63 outlasts others quite easily with its better fuel economy and a bigger tank. This helps it to achieve the reputation of being a marathon runner disguised as a sprinter. The others are way behind it in their range of approaches.

Interior
9.0/10

The interior of the 2020 BMW M8 is extremely luxurious, premium, and opulent. High-quality materials are on every bit and inch. The dash has a driver-focused and very attractive design. You get a full Alcantara simulated suede headliner and leather inserts at almost every surface that you touch. The Nappa instrument panel is complemented by the beautiful Merino leather upholstery. Lots of color combinations are available for the highest customizability.

The front seats are 16-way power-adjustable and are both heated and ventilated. The steering wheel is wrapped in M Sport Leather and offers auto tilt-away functions. The 2020 M8 and the S63 technically can seat four, although is not very viable. The front row is spacious in all the cars here, while the rear row of the S63 is slightly more spacious than the Bimmer. When it comes to the cargo front, the 2020 M8's cargo space and the S63's cargo capacity easily lead the way, while the other two can barely be deemed ‘practical’.

A 10.25” infotainment screen running on BMW’s iDrive v7.0 interface and sticking out from the center console is at your helm to fulfill all your entertainment desires. The system is quite easy to use, intuitive, and also very responsive. The touchscreen can also be controlled by a rotary dial. A heads-up display is also available. The standard features on offer include Bluetooth, SiriusXM, HD Radio, wireless charging, Wi-Fi hotspot, voice-activated navigation, USB ports, 12V outlets, etc. Unfortunately, only Apple CarPlay is available so folks with Android would have to sit this one out. Audio is handled by a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, while one can upgrade to Bowers & Wilkins too.

Exterior
9.0/10

The 2020 BMW M8 Coupe is one gorgeous beast to look at. Its sleek and slender design coupled with the immaculate modern styling will be a feast for anyone’s eyes. The front fascia is totally distinct and unique from any other Bimmer model, but also unmistakably retains the iconic presence. The classic BMW LED headlights with laser technology spearhead the vehicle.

The 2020 BMW M8 exterior design language is aggressive and furious, with a very wide blacked-out kidney grille giving it the stench of a Bavarian. The front bumper is quite large and wide and adds to the aggression. The side sees M-aerodynamic mirror caps and a pair of stylish gills on either side. The rear gets the carving with a sloping roofline along with the stylish LED taillights and quad-tip exhausts.

The sleekness and streamlined curvatures are among the prerequisites of this segment. The 2020 M8 is slightly longer in dimensions than the others and thus straight-line stability and hard cornering are subjected to be assisted by the AWD and other adaptive dynamic units.

Some exterior features include:

  • 20” M Double-Spoke Bi-color
  • Rear spoiler
  • Carbon-fiber-reinforced roof
  • Black kidney grille
  • LED DRLs with laser supplement
  • LED brake lights
  • Quad-tip exhausts
Safety
9.0/10

Unfortunately, the BMW M8 has not been tested for safety by either NHTSA or IIHS. The reason being the price and exclusivity of the car. You can’t just get one to throw at walls and obstacles. Anyway, the M8 can be expected to be a worry-free ride, as BMW always prioritizes safety over anything else. It comes with three Driver Assistance Professional packages which you can equip for more convenience while driving on the road. The Frontal collision warning, Lane-Keeping Assist, Active Park distance control, and Surround-view with a 3D view are among a few to be mentioned in the oasis of offers.

The safety features on offer include:

  • BMW Assist eCall emergency SOS
  • Frontal collision warning w/ City Collision Mitigation
  • Blind-spot monitoring w/ rear cross-traffic alert (optional)
  • Lane-keeping assist (optional)
  • Lane departure warning (optional)
  • Active Park distance control (optional)
  • Surround-view with a 3D view (optional)
Competition
9.0/10

2020 BMW M8 Coupe vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG S63 4MATIC Coupe

The eternal rivalry of the Germans always entertains. The M8 is better when it comes to performance and outright handling and fun-to-drivability. The Mercedes-Benz S63 is just a tad bit more restraint, but it makes up for it by offering a more luxurious interior with more standard features. The Bimmer has more outlandish and stylish looks while the AMG S63 offers a statelier and more aristocratic look. Bear in mind that the Merc costs significantly more, but it is also more luxurious.

2020 BMW M8 Coupe vs 2020 Audi R8 V10 Quattro Coupe

The Audi R8 is an all-around sports car that thrives on being fast and is also great to drive. It does not care much about the luxuries but about the drivability and track use. The BMW is more practical and also costs way less, while also being slightly faster and more fuel-efficient than the R8. The R8 offers a more raw driving dynamics but also features a luxurious but spartan interior, complemented by its own special looks. If you plan on taking the car to a track, then the R8 is a better choice but the M8 is a better GT.

Final Verdict

Considering you have the budget, the 2020 BMW M8 Coupe is an excellent choice for a sporty and practical grand tourer. The trunk space is massive, the interior is luxurious and the looks are killer. The performance is obviously the strongest point of the BMW M8 and it is also quite agile when pushed hard. The exclusion of Android Auto and standard driver assistance features is a bummer, but these are just the smallest of inconveniences in the grand scheme of things.
