BMW Reveals M8 Competition Edition Pit Lane

Stunning new M8 special

  • Pit Lane gets all the carbon, special paint and interior

  • Sold only in Liechtenstein and Switzerland


It’s a version of BMW’s M8 that’s aimed solely at two of its smallest markets. And by that we don’t mean small in sales, we mean physically small. The BMW M8 Competition Edition Pit Lane adds special paint and trim along with other changes to the car, and it’s only for sale in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein.

BMW will make seven of these based on the four-door Gran Coupe model, and three more will be made based on the convertible, and they’ll all start with Hockenheim Silver metallic paint from the BMW Individual catalogue.

Next up are exclusive M Performance 20-inch forged wheels in Ferric Grey matte finish, looking much like those found on the latest M3 and M4. BMW has added the entirety of its M Carbon exterior package to the cars, popping against that silver paint with a carbon fibre front apron, rear diffuser insert, lip spoiler, front fender vents, mirror caps, and even the front grille and the fuel filler cap are in carbon. Pop the hood; more carbon in the form of the engine cover. Maybe that’s why it’s called the Pit Lane edition, because you can admire it at a stop?

Inside, the specials are fitted with M carbon bucket seats and the BMW Individual full Merino leather interior package. The colour scheme picked is Sakhir Orange and Black and the interior, too, is loaded with carbon fiber trim. A plaque in front of the iDrive controller tells you it’s one of 10 and there are carbon shift paddles. M compound brakes are the only mechanical change to the car.

The first one will be on display at the BMW Experience Center Dielsdorf starting this month, and when pandemic restrictions allow they’ll take them to interested customers by appointment. Which is a pretty swank way to shop for your special edition car. Lastly, each one gets a special car cover with embroidered lettering.
