The overall reply is “no” however the efficiency a few of their vehicles have today may simply as effectively place them in that actual class. The BMW M8 Competitors is certainly a candidate for the title of supercar, due to its immense efficiency figures. Its outcomes on the race monitor converse for themselves.
The M8 Competitors is a giant, heavy automotive nevertheless it makes up for it with tons of grip and loads of energy. We’ve seen it cling with correct supercars for some time not, particularly on a drag strip, and in the present day we’re checking it out on the monitor. The fellows from Auto Motor und Sport took it out on their proving grounds, to see the way it compares in opposition to different fashions they examined on the identical circuit earlier than. The outcomes have been spectacular, to say the least.

Some will likely be saying that’s two generations outdated they usually’d be proper however the 911 GT3 991.2 wasn’t far off both, clocked at 01:48:18. However what concerning the vehicles it managed to beat?
