THE HILLCLIMB.

The crowds at Goodwood saw the first ever BMW M8 Competition with M Performance Accessories go up the Hillclimb as part of the Supercar Batch. In addition to enhancing the sporty appearance of the models, the accessory options also meet functional requirements in terms of lightweight construction and aerodynamics. The M Performance Accessories included a Carbon Fibre Kidney Grille, M Performance details, a Titanium Exhaust system, and a sensational M Performance Pro steering wheel with carbon fibre shift paddles and carbon fibre/Alcantara – carbon fibre / leather trim.

FIRST GLANCE BATCH.

Also for the first time, the BMW X4 M Competition went up the Hillclimb in the First Glance Batch. Its powerful combination of BMW M racetrack ingenuity and the BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system is elevated to even greater heights with a striking coupé design.
