BMW M8 Competition: CarBarn offers it up to 1,000 horsepower!

CarBahn Autoworks specializes in the preparation of Mercedes and BMW models, but also Toyota with the latest Supra derived from the BMW Z4. But this time, it was the last M8 Competition, the sportiest GT in the BMW family, that interested the American car trainer.

Several packs are offered by CarBahn, starting with a first level called “GT”: here, the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 sees its power pushed to 824 horsepower and 1.056 Nm of torque, or even 882 horsepower and 1,077 Nm when SP100 gasoline is used. For comparison, the original engine already offers 625 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque.

Here, the exchangers and air filters have been replaced, while an electronic reprogramming of the engine map has been carried out. Specific springs have also been fitted, in order to lower the trim of the car by about 25 mm, and there are also adjustable anti-roll bars. This first level “GT” is displayed at a price of 13,700 dollars (around 11,600 euros), and for an additional 9,200 dollars (around 7,800 euros), you can add 20-inch Forgeline rims fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup R tires.

A second level of preparation, called “GTS”, is also offered, with new turbochargers as well as a methanol injection system, which increases performance. Here, the power goes to 850 horsepower and 1.077 Nm of torque, and up to 940 horsepower if SP100 is used. Count 23,700 dollars (about 20,000 euros) for these modifications.

Finally, the ultimate level proposed by CarBahn is called “GTC”, and calls for even more extensive engine modifications, for an amount of 43,000 dollars (approximately 36,400 euros). The M8 Competition develops 900 horsepower here, and up to 1,000 horses with SP100. The torque remains, here also, unchanged compared to the level “GT”, with 1.077 Nm.

With all these modifications, also offered for the BMW M5, CarBahn Autoworks allows an increase of up to +375 hp and +327 Nm of torque, compared to the original configuration of the BMW M8 Competition.
