BMW gives the M8 Competition certain interior and exterior upgrades

The 2023 BMW M8 Competition Coupe, Competition Convertible and Competition Gran Coupe arrive with new interior technology, optional M Carbon bucket seats and increased colour options, bringing the range up to date. The non-competition variants of the BMW M8 series have also been discontinued.

The LED headlights on the new BMW M8 cars will now include M Shadowline inserts that lend a dark tint to the headlamps and the upgraded model will also gain cosmetic improvements for its exteriors. Brooklyn Grey, Isle Man Green, and Skyscraper Grey are among the new colour options offered. The individual palette will also include Frozen Pure Grey and Tanzanite Blue II.

The BMW M8 Competition versions' powerplant remains unchanged. They're powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 with 625PS and 750Nm of torque. The power is sent to the all-wheel-drive system via an eight-speed automatic transmission. This forces the BMW M8 from 0 to 100kmph in a mere 3-seconds. With the optional M Driver's Package, the top speed is 306kmph.

The updated BMW M8 competitions, like other M vehicles for the 2022 calendar year, may also be customised with old-school BMW Motorsport badges on the hood, trunk and wheel centre caps. For those who like the traditional BMW roundel, it is still available.

Inside, the M8 Competition versions' central infotainment display has grown to 12.3 inches, up from 10.25 inches previously. As a result, it's the same size as the digital instrument cluster currently. M Carbon bucket seats are an option on the revised range. The integrated headrests include exposed carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic pieces, massive bolsters, and LED M8 insignia. The heated and electrically adjustable seats are a nice touch.

The carbon seats are upholstered in complete merino leather with Alcantara trim. Colour schemes in Black and Midrand Beige or Black and Sakhir Orange is offered. BMW additionally adds black Alcantara to the dashboard and upper door panels if you buy these seats in black Alcantara.

The M8 competition vehicles will be produced in the United States beginning in March 2022. It is most likely to arrive at the Indian shores in 2023.
