It was only yesterday that I posted a story asking what the Spies thought would be powering the all-new BMW 8-Series and M8. Well, it seems that we may have our answer now.

That's because there's not one, but two, telling videos that have surfaced online. 

One was sourced from the Nurburgring 24 hour race where the M8 made its big-time debut. The second was straight from the 8-Series' debut at the Concours d'Elegance at Villa d'Este. 

From what I can hear it seems pretty clear that both vehicles will feature V8s. Obviously, the M8 will get a bit more trickery to bump its power figures to something stratospheric. Note: The M8's exhaust is a mixture of badass and, frankly, very unfinished. Almost reminds me of a piece of landscaping equipment gone wrong.

That said, check out the clips below and let us know what you think.

During the 24h of the Nurburgring I got the opportunity to film the 2018 BMW M8. Not many specs are know so far, but what I can tell you is that the sound is fantastic! The interior was still fully covered, so we can't see it yet. So many secrets... But this video shows you thestart up sound, revs and acceleration on the Nurburgring! I hope you will enjoy the video!
