BMW M8 Gran Coupé review - you won't believe its 1/4 mile time!

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupé!
This colossal car is the widest car BMW produces (yes, wider than an X7!), and it’s powered by an equally large engine, with a 4.4-litre V8 packed under the bonnet to produce 625hp!
So when it comes to look, there’s no denying that it’s absolutely breathtaking. But when you consider that the M8 Gran Coupe starts from £120,000, do you really need to pay so much just for the additional doors and back seat space? Especially when you can pick up an M850i for just over £82,000! Stick with Mat for his latest in-depth review to find out!

Why does this m model not have a sunroof option ! and no I don't wanna hear that lower center of gravity more head room for race helmet crap somebody is going to respond with ; nobody is buying this for a track car lol.
This is a 4k luxury sport sedan that needs a panaromic sunroof and I don't wanna hear oh sunroofs will break and leak if you can afford this car you can afford a sunroof repair lol.

Mat thinks that the S20 Ultra is better than a IPhone 11 Pro but actually the car is made for iPhones. That’s why old models didn’t have android auto and only Apple CarPlay.

The dodge stealth, in 1991, had 4 wheel steering. I wonder how this car will age..? Because BMWs are expensive to upkeep after 100k miles, and have very poor reliability after 10 years. On minor stuff that kills the engines. It is the M8 after all..

Best looking current BMW M car. I just saw the new M3/M4 and literally laughed out loud I though it was some kind of prank but sadly not. :-/ It's just a pity you now have to spend close to £100k to get an elegant, tasteful looking BMW performance car. :-/ I think BMW need to ease off a bit with the M badges everywhere though, there are so many on this car it just smacks of desperation.

I dont think people in cheaper cars care less about them, at least not all of them. People who buy M cars couldnt care less about curb rash, the money they are loosing on depreciacion alone would drive them mad🤣.

Drive that car like a hooligan and it will surely break. BMW is only good for bringing to the shop so you can use your warranty.
