Autocar reports that a BMW M8, based off the upcoming resurrected 8 Series (see first spy photos), is tentatively scheduled to be introduced by the second half of 2019. An application to register the M8 trademark was recently filed by BMW.

The M8 is speculated to be powered by a new twin turbo 4.0L V8 engine, and come RWD or optional AWD xDrive. The AWD model with its improved traction is supposed to achieve 0-62mph in well under 4 seconds.

Like the 8 Series upon which it will be based, the M8 is expected to feature a lighter-weight mix of materials, including aluminum, magnesium, high-strength steel and carbon fiber.

The M8 will be positioned to compete with the likes of the Mercedes AMG S63 Coupe, Aston Martin Rapide and Bentley Continental GT.

Doubt it'll be a supercar.. BMW don't have the bottle to do it

Plus it's based on the same debate 'is it the new 6 or 8 series that's been spotted...'

Will there be a 4-door version? I ask since it was mentioned that it will compete with the AM Rapide
