BMW should bet on a successor to the "classic" M1, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, who made sensation between 1978 and 1981, a period that had only 456 units produced.
According to Automobile, the super coupe Bavarian brand, which never had a successor (despite already being produced other M models), named M8. The production model in question will serve to mark 100 years of the BMW.
With arrival in 2016, has reached M1 Hommage concept take the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2008. But this never came to pass that stage.
Still no confirmation on the propellant to be used, but speculates that it may be related to the system to be used in hybrid i8. At stake could be a V8 engine working in conjunction with electric motors for a total output of 600 hp.
In order to save development costs, also the body of M8 should be a modified version of the i8, using carbon fiber and aluminum.
