It would seem that the Vision EfficientDynamics concept car the Bavarians at BMW rolled out to the public quite some time ago is still the inspiration behind some rumors.
The most recent of them is that BMW are considering building a new model, a hybrid one no less.
The guilty party behind the rumor is the staff at German magazine “Autozeitung” who have made quite an interesting case.
Don’t think back to the BMW 850i with a washing machine engine in it, oh no, this will be a M powered vehicle. Even so, that’s not enough. It will be the 5 liter V10 engine out of the E60 BMW M5 which will be mated to a couple of electric motors rounding up the total horsepower figure somewhere around the 700 mark.
Not bad, not bad at all. The new BMW, dubbed the M8, will be nothing short of spectacular if we pick up this presentation, the spec sheet of the Vision EfficientDynamics concept and the talent that BMW has on offer.
Perhaps it will also be turbocharged, better yet, twin turbocharged. And perhaps it will have machine guns on the roof. We’ll just have to put our sensible hats on, not take it to seriously. Well at least some cheeky Germans who actually work for BMW confirm this.
