I see BMW are continuing in the fine tradition of circumventing BoP by making cars too large to overtake, as also championed by Nissan & Bentley of late.

At the very least it sounds decent. Thank the heavens!

Anything in the world sounds better than the V6 Turbo they run now in both their GT3 and GTE cars.

Current M6 uses a turbo V8.

I stand corrected! I took a peek inside the Turner Motorsport engine bay last year at Lime Rock Park, and I could have sworn they used a V6 seeing as how small it appeared as well as all of the extra space that was in there.

I guess when you put a big engine in a boat, there's still a lot of space.

That car looks a lot more sleek than the current one they're running. If the M6 is a yacht, this M8 is a speedboat. I like the flared fenders, though. Looks aggressive.

BMW always builds handsome cars, I just wish these were 7/8ths scale.

I prefer to think of them as the M6 cruse ship and the M8 tanker. And the Bentley Village Church. Original concept probably had a bell tower.

The roof really is a good deal lower than the M6. The car almost looks DTM'ish but a little wider and longer.

I'm with you on that. It looks more than good. Like a simpler DTM car. Looks correctly proportioned in comparison to the M6.

That thing is low and long! I'm really curious about that bump right behind the mirror. And it looks like it has a really flat rear fender flare.

It's the reflection from the mirror glass itself.
