Set to debut at the Shanghai Motor Show in just two weeks time, this concept car is a near visual match to the production model, with the gaping M front fascia, flared fenders, huge wheels and, of course, those trademark fenders. Out back there’s a revised diffuser with four exhaust pipes, plus a modest trunk-lid spoiler.
In a release BMW confirms the twin-turbo V8 engine, which BMW promises, “generates the power output required for outstanding performance.”
