The new BMW 8-Series is out, and there are rumors and information floating around the web about upcoming variants of the new car. One of those variants yet to come out is the M8 Competition. It will be a hard-edged version of the car, and more sporty than ever. It just leaked.
According to CarBuzz, this isn’t the first time the car has leaked, but it’s the most recent and one of the closest shots to the car that has surfaced. The photo was posted to Eng. Abdalla Alhammadi’s Instagram profile. From there, the image spread like wildfire across various forums and new sites.
The image shows a red and black 8-Series that’s undoubtedly the M8 Competition. The picture was posted to Instagram with the caption, “New photo of BMW M8.” It’s unclear how the user was able to capture the image.
CarBuzz notes that when you compare this image with the previously leaked images and spy shots of the car, it’s clear that the M8 Competition will feature a lot of carbon fiber on the exterior of the car. It will also get a unique rear spoiler, unique rear diffuser, and black exhaust tips. The publication also notes that the roof will be carbon fiber across the model range.
BMW currently sells the M850i as the highest level of the car. That will change with this new version. There will also be other versions of the car as BMW continues to flesh out the model range.
