Tuner would give your BMW M8 a carbon fiber body kit, if you had one

Unlike the smaller M3 and M4, the BMW M8 is always a nice ride, no matter if we’re talking about the Coupe, Convertible or Gran Coupé. So we wouldn’t be touching the exterior at all, but some tuners might not agree, including Zacoe.

You’re definitely sorry if you don’t know who they are because, truth be told, they’re not that famous. Still, you might remember some of their previous projects, like the McLaren 720S they presented last summer, with carbon fiber additions. The lightweight material is also at the forefront of the updates of this BMW M8 Gran Coupé.

Be careful, the changes are not radical, but they are not really discreet either. Up front, the G83 pictured in our gallery sports a new chin spoiler. The profile is decorated with similar-looking sill extensions, and at the rear it has a new diffuser bezel and a large fender mounted on the trunk lid. Black Y-spoke alloys, clamped by thin rubber, contribute to the car’s enhanced presence on the road.

While they haven’t revealed any pricing details at the time of writing, the body kit is likely a four-dollar deal, or in the worst-case scenario, a five-figure deal. As for A.’s US M8 Competition Gran Coupé MSRP, it’s $ 130,000, so the saying “if you have to ask how much it costs, you probably can’t afford it” doesn’t apply. here.

Since Zacoe hasn’t said anything about performance improvements, we’ll assume their tuned M8 GC remained in stock. As a result, you’re probably still looking for 617 hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque, produced by the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine. From 0 to 60 mph (0-97 km / h), the stock model needs a little over 3 seconds, and the top speed is 190 mph (305 km / h) provided get it with the optional M Driver’s Pack.
