    they r going to make another one in 2003<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. with BMW's M power engines they make the car a hell of a lot nicer and faster. It would be quite expensive but damn, a V12 M Engine in a BMW luxury coupe? it makes me cream just thinkin about it<!-- Signature -->

  5. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    yep they did. this is a pic of it. 700hp Supercharged 5.6litre V12. 1/4th a mile around 11 seconds. top speed (faster than the CLK GTX)<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    I dunno about the 8 series coming back in 2003. I beleive you are getting the 6 series mixed up with the 8 series. There never was an official M8. It was the 850CSi which was tuned by BMW Motorsport Gmbh which had a special interior, tuned suspension, 6 speed manual gearbox. Its extremely rare though. Only 1800 or so built. Never was officially imporeted to the USA.
     
  7. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    First off, I'm sure you have your sources, but BMW never uses superchargers, and they have only rarely used turbos. BMW is all about getting power without resorting to huge displacement or easy-does-it bandaids, ie. Super- and turbo-chargers. So whoever made that supercharged 850CSi, great, but it wasn't BMW.

    And the 850CSi is actually considered to be an M8, in ever aspect except the name. BMW themselves list it as one of their ///M cars. So your request for an M8 has been filled, just without your knowledge <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    The engine even has a ///M badge on it. BMWF1rules was right, on all accounts.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    Some time ago BMW was devloping a M8. But becuase the 8-series is so heavy they aborted.
    There is a Alpine version though.
     
  9. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    There is one, it had 550 bhp and it speeded up to 300 kph or more, it had a lighter carcass, everythimg unessential in it was removed, the side glases of the frontal sidewindows were of plastic.

  12. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    The 8-series bimmer on the photos is a mad demon! Like liquid said, the wheels are ugly. BTW, the tiger 0-60 is 3.11 secs...<!-- Signature -->

    even if it had 900hp it wouldnt be enough to haul a 2000 kilo car to 400 km/h or accelerate in sub 3 seconds
     
  14. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    That is nice.<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: beautiful.

    The 8-series isn't comng out in 2003 as far as I know, there going to bring back the 6-series<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    The CSI is the original Beamer, and thats that
     
  17. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    The wheels aren't that bad, but they could be better. A new 8 series would be awesome too.
     
  18. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    Yeah that's the 6 series coming out, not a new 8 series unfortuneatly. But the new 6 series should be nice anyway. Yeah, the 850CSi is considered to be an M series car, in every aspect except the name, as someone (dun' remember who), already stated. It's a nice car, legend in BMW in my opinion. A guy I know has one...
     
  19. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    Actually BMW made an actual M8 but you could only get it through special request and the interior was custom made to suit the buyers needs it ran at about 200,000-250,000 dollars and was fast only, about 200 made there way to the U.S
     
  20. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    better not be a bangle car
     
  21. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    ok all of you have to get your stories straight and make sure you do your research before you post that there was an m8, there was only one m8 made and it never was sold, its in a bmw warehouse behind a bunch of boxes. the car was originally going to be made to be a ferrari killer but at the time there was no market for such a car so the bmw executives scrapped the project. They scrapped the project when the car was still in testing and they never had a final model. so to answer ur questions there was never an M8.
     
  22. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    Heres the M8. I heard BMW contemplated putting the 6.1 litre M engine from the McLaren in an 8 series car. This car has a 666 v12 engine in it. Maybe it is a tuned version of the F1 engine.
     
  23. Wel..
    Re:
    BMW should make a BMW M8!


    BMW did start producing an " M8 " but it never really went ne were the 850 CSi was the closest pehaps was the only M8 that BMW ever produced, similar to the 7 series there was never an M7 but the 760i is reputedly supposed to be the same thing.

    From screwamericancars:
    even if it had 900hp it wouldnt be enough to haul a 2000 kilo car to 400 km/h or accelerate in sub 3 seconds

    Yeah, but it would be damn close, and top speed really has very little bearing on weight. No one ever said how long it would take to get there <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> BUT, the car's aerodynamics, being about 10 years old at best, might be the hindering force.
     
  25. Re: BMW should make a BMW M8!

    btw BMW doesnt make 7 litre and it would make a already nose heavy car just fall on its face. Also noone I mean noone would go to BMW for a car that performs liek a Bugatti. Also 900 hp would never make any car as heavy as an 8 series go the 62 mph form standstill in less than three secs.
