4. 2016 BMW M8
While the M series of tuned BMWs has provided sporting fun over the years, the Bavarians have not set foot in the land of supercars for over three decades. The M1 was legendary, on and off the track, but went out of production in 1981. To celebrate their centennial, BMW M GmbH boss Friedrich Nitschke looks to resurrect the mothballed M8 idea originally proposed in the early 90s. Building on the upcoming i8 platform that pushes for superior fuel economy, the M8 will be a mash-up of existing M5 components and lots of carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum parts. The current powerplant found in the M5, a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter, will be tweaked to produce upwards of 600 horsepower, and attached to BMW’s eight-speed dual-clutch automatic, complete with flappy paddles. Not much is known regarding the overall look of the car, and as the current head of BMW is not a fan of the project, this may be one car you’ll have to wait a long time for. But if the M1 is any indicator of what the M8 could be, it will be worth the wait.
