Listen to the 2018 BMW M8 Blow Away a Crowd at the ‘Ring

It sounds like BMW has finally figured out how to tune a turbocharged engine for maximum aural pleasure. The 2018 BMW M8 was previewed this weekend and aspartkf that we got to hear the car for the first time.

Under the hood is a 600 hp version of the new M5’s S63 4.4L V8 with two turbos, direct injection and variable valve timing. That all adds up to an undisclosed power output over 600 hp, over 500 ft lbs of torque and a 0-60 time of under 3.5 seconds.

And finally the sound may actually live up to the performance.

    I’d guess that the M8 will also have a ZF 8-speed auto and M xDrive. Just like the next-gen M5. Curious what its Nordschleife time will be.
