BMW M8 UNLEASHED! My First Sketchy Nurburgring Laps

Πριν 3 μήνες

It's time to unleash the BMW M8 Competition! Where better to head with the new Shmeemobile than an Autobahn blast on the way to the Nürburgring, experiencing the power now it's run-in. However, horrible weather definitely made for some interesting Ring laps, especially when joined by Robert in his new 620R!
A few weeks ago I returned with the M8 Competition to M Town near Munich for the inspection service at the end of the running-in process, and it also received a host of M Performance Parts being installed. However, in the rush on the day I failed to show one of those; the new extended carbon fibre engine bay components! Since then, the M8 has been with Shmarc150 (manager of Shmee150) who has been enjoying it for a tour, but now it's time for me to get back behind the wheel and unleash it on the Autobahn and Nurburgring.
With 625hp from the 4.4l TwinPower Turbo V8, the M8 Competition has plenty of go, and that becomes very clear on the de-restricted sections of the motorway, although the traffic certainly has other ideas... Upon arrival at the Nurburgring, things also quickly take a turn for the worse as the sky opens up and the rain starts coming down; not what I was hoping for. However, this became a fascinating opportunity to get a feel for driving the Green Hell in the wet, particularly with the 4WD and 4WD Sport modes to experiment with.
After a cautious first lap, the next is out following Robert Mitchell in his new McLaren 620R - running on Pirelli Trofeo R, tyres absolutely not suited to the weather conditions! However, it's a great insight into the right line to take, and helps as well for a 3rd outing shortly thereafter.
There is no doubt the M8 is a fabulous and exceptionally versatile car, demonstrated clearly with its comfort on the motorway at speed but also the ability to dial up the dynamic ability on the track too. It may not have made for the fastest laps in the rain, but I certainly enjoyed the drive!
Awesome thumbnail pic from Ring-Race-Shoot, be sure to check out pics of your laps and GP sessions at as well!
Thanks for watching, Tim

Nurburgring time for the BMW M8 Competition, although the weather didn't want to make it easy... What did you think of Robert's effort in his brand new McLaren 620R?!

Although I definitely love M cars, I can never forgive them for the horrible looking rear brake calipers even though my mind knows it makes no performance difference.

There is no such thing a a de-restricted autobahn. No speed limit is the standard so there is only speed limited where speed limits apply. By the way, there is something called the "Richtgeschwindigkeit" which is 130 KM/h.

Great video - as usual! But those wipers not only do not clean properly, but also make a little noise - especially on the slow speed. The good thing was that the windshield looks like it has a "anti-rain" sealant, e.g. Rain-X. That is a pretty good thing - to compensate for the bad wipers. Cheers.

I find my self in a kind of similar place with mountain biking, I will do downhill runs in the wet as this allows me to find grip at slower speeds. Then when it comes to dry days I'm much faster, is this similar with driving on track? Cool video.

I've got to learn to wait to the end of the video to comment... you'd think that would not be hard for a 50+ year old... LoL... Now... you really got to grips with the wet laps and started taking the wet line and stopped "hack sawing" the steering wheel. You really have become a very competent driver Shmee.

All the M cars are fantastic fun. I’ve had two of them myself and it was hard to let them go. But as good as the new M8 is, it’s simply not a proper sport car! It’s no competition for the R8 V10 plus, a 911 Turbo or even the front engine, but amazing AMG GT-R. The M8 is sooo big and heavy that reminds me of a mothership aircraft! BMW seriously needs a mid engine, light and powerful sport car to get back in the game!

Enjoyed that, nice change to see a wet lap. Sometimes its just so fast they look the same.If I want to watch speed laps there's other better professional drivers to watch,I like the fact you're a keen amateur and that they are your cars, easy to be brave when your not paying the bill if it goes pair shaped.

This car is so heavy almost 1900kg. Compared to m2 although heavier it has a better front suspension that I suppose it compensates for that. I think bmw can also try a lightweight rwd version of the m8 at say max 1600kg?! Why? Because the current bmw gte class race car is an m8 at only 1250kg
