Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupé!
This colossal car is the widest car BMW produces (yes, wider than an X7!), and it’s powered by an equally large engine, with a 4.4-litre V8 packed under the bonnet to produce 625hp!
So when it comes to look, there’s no denying that it’s absolutely breathtaking. But when you consider that the M8 Gran Coupe starts from £120,000, do you really need to pay so much just for the additional doors and back seat space? Especially when you can pick up an M850i for just over £82,000! Stick with Mat for his latest in-depth review to find out!

  • Best looking current BMW M car. I just saw the new M3/M4 and literally laughed out loud I though it was some kind of prank but sadly not. :-/ It's just a pity you now have to spend close to £100k to get an elegant, tasteful looking BMW performance car. :-/ I think BMW need to ease off a bit with the M badges everywhere though, there are so many on this car it just smacks of desperation.
