If you're a fan of big smokey skids you'll be pleased to learn the M8 will have a two-wheel drive mode

The M8 has no release date, and it's going to be expensive. Fiercest of the BMW 8 Series, the company's luxury grand tourers taking on Porsche and others, the vehicle will deliver more than 600 horsepower, BMW said today. The M850i xDrive Convertible we showed you photos of earlier this month delivers 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.
BMW has confirmed its upcoming M8 coupé will be powered by a "high-revving" V8 generating more than 440 kW when it hits the market "in the course of 2019".
The auto is now in testing, with BMW taking it out to various race tracks - like the Estoril grand-prix circuit in Portugal, that you can see in these photos - before series production begins.
All that grunt will be sent to the tarmac through an active rear differential and BMW's M xDrive performance all-wheel drive system, which features a rear bias and the ability to operate in two-wheel drive mode for tyre-shredding action. While purists may hate the idea, it will be rear biased and offer a traditional 2WD mode. BMW didn't go into specifics, but said the auto will have a unique suspension which delivers "exceptional directional stability, steering precision and cornering dynamics".
