[VIDEO] The Fastest BMW M8 Competition Coupe Gets a New Rate

The BMW M8 Competition Coupe remains the fastest BMW on the market. Its 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which produces 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, makes it a straight-line beast, reaching 60 mph in under three seconds. What’s it like on the track, though, where M cars are supposed to have been born?

Let’s take a closer look at the BMW M8 Competition Coupe through the eyes of a motoring journalist and a racing driver in this new episode of RATED from Hagerty.

At first, Kevin Madsen, a journalist, takes the M8 through its paces on the track. Next is Robb Holland, a racing driver who takes it for a spin and gets a little more out of it,  owing to his racing experience. After that, to come up with the final score, they both rate the M8 in different categories.

Not to spoil you too much. But the M8 Competition Coupe isn’t highly rated. Sure, there are some things to like about, such as incredible performance and pace, for instance. But, it is not the best car worth the money. Specifically, the tested car’s price on the video. Their exact test car had a sticker price of about $175,000, which is absurdly high for an M8. You can get a Porsche 911 Turbo at that price. Porsche will defeat M8 on the road and on the track while still looking and feeling more unique on the inside. You could also purchase an Audi R8 V10, which looks finer and is just as fast as M6. It also has a V10 soundtrack that will send chills down your spine while also shaming the M8’s synthetic engine noise.

BMW M8 Competition Coupe appeals to the mind because of its capability. Its capability to accelerate quickly despite its weight and impressive car. But despite that, its most significant concern is that it never appeals to the heart.
