BMW Malaysia has launched the new M8 Coupe, priced at RM 1,452,960.88. Alongside the M8 Coupe, BMW also launched the M8 Gran Coupe, priced at RM1,455,145.25.

Under the hood is the most powerful variant of BMW’s V8 engine with a redline of 7,200 rpm. The engine comes with special engine mounting for a more rigid connection with the vehicle structure. This results in even crisper engine and steering response.

Drivers can select either the default 4WD setting or 4WD Sport mode, which channels more power to the rear wheels. Deactivating the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) switches the M8 Coupe into 2WD mode. With the optional M Driver’s Package, the M8 Coupe is capable of hitting a 305 km/h top speed.
