2018 BMW M8 GTE

BMW has confirmed that its 2018 GTE contender will be based on the new M8 model, as the German manufacturer ramps up for a dual championship factory GT program next year. A fully camouflaged, early prototype of the production car was unveiled during a driving event at Nürburgring. Specifications for the production or race car have not yet been released but it’s believed to feature either a twin-turbocharged V8 or V12 engine.

The M8 GTE is scheduled to make its race debut in the 2018 Daytona 24 Hours, and will undergo more tests in both Europe and North America throughout the remainder of 2017.
