The 2021 BMW M8 Costs More Than You Think

Most people recognize that BMW overall as a brand isn’t particularly affordable — though they do have some great choices for more affordable entry-level luxury. Add on that well-earned M badge, and that price only goes up, expressing that car as the ‘motorsports’ drivetrain that makes it a more pure driver’s car. Along with that comes a higher price tag, and for cars like the BMW M8, you might be surprised with just how high that price can get.

How expensive is the 2021 BMW M8?

The BMW M8 itself costs a pretty penny. It’s the perfect mixture of luxury and performance, offering anything and everything you could be looking for. Sure, you aren’t expecting to see a modest price tag on a vehicle like this, especially buying the newest 2021 model, but you probably aren’t expecting the $130,000 price tag — talk about sticker shock. Then again, it more than lives up to such a high price.

Futuristic features live up to expectations

The 2021 BMW M8 might be expensive, but it offers some amazing features that we are truly a step up from other cars on the road. Not only does the M8 have adaptive headlights, but it also has adaptive brake lights, as well as advanced safety technology designed to protect the driver and the vehicle in case of an accident. Front and rear head protection systems and active protection systems are just a few more reasons to enjoy the car to its fullest — and when it comes to performance, there is a lot to enjoy.

Power and performance

BMW isn’t shy when it comes to showing off their performance stats, and that’s no different with the 2021 BMW M8. Under the hood of this capable machine is a 4.4-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that provides the car as much as 617-hp. Combined with the 8-speed M Sport automatic transmission paired with the brand’s Drivelogic, sport mode, and paddle shifters, this luxury sports car pushes 0 – 60 mph in a reported 2.5 seconds, making it faster than the impressive new Porsche Taycan by just a hair.
