The Auto Trader expert verdict:
With its thumping turbocharged V8 engine, multi-mode four-wheel drive system and sophisticated chassis technology the BMW M8 Competition isn’t lacking in performance or ambition to bridge the gap between sports cars like the Porsche 911 and luxury coupes like the Bentley Continental GT. Nor is it lacking in prestigious rivals either, the only real question being does the BMW badge cut it at this level.
Reasons to buy:
- Muscular performance across the board
- Assertive and distinctive styling
- As luxurious as it is fast
