G-Power G8M Bi-Turbo Takes BMW M8 Competition To 808 HP (603 KW)
G-Power back in the news again but this time they have taken the drop-top BMW M8 Competition Convertible and cranked it to level 12.
In its standard production version, the M8 Competition already features the extremely powerful twin-turbo V8 with an output of 617 (460 kW) and 750 Nm. This was not enough for the tuner as you can opt for the G8M Bi-Turbo from them which pumps output up to 808 hp (603 kW) and 1,000 Nm torque.
It lacks the steering feel of a 911 or the agility of an R8, or the brute muscle car character of a Mercedes-AMG GT.
I like it a lot in isolation but, when it comes to it, would sign elsewhere.

Manhart BMW M8 Competition Performance Delivers Monstrous 823 HP (614 KW)
The M8 Competition is the closest thing to a BMW supercar at the moment and now Manhart Performance can offer an upgrade that will leave a lot of supercars left for dead.
The MH8 800 package cranks the twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 engine up to a ridiculous 823 hp (614 kW) and 1,050 Nm of torque. This power hike will allow the tuned Coupé to sprint to 100 km/h in a Porsche 911 Turbo S matching 2.6 seconds. Just 5.7 seconds later and you will be hitting 200 km/h.
