Big GT cars like this, especially ones without a really clear purpose and prices deep into six figures, tend to be at their most compelling as buying propositions several years down the line, once they’ve shed rather a lot of their value.

But without people to buy them now, those with more modest resources won’t be able to enjoy them later, which is why BMW will find a way to take a down payment and then put an M8 on your drive for around £1100 a month (or £1350 with the Ultimate Package).

The Ultimate Pack is expensive but might be the easier way to sell an M8 afterwards, making it more appealing.

We managed to return around 23mpg overall during our time with the car – which included some moments of exceptional right-footedness, but drive more sensibly and you can get 27-28mpg, which endows the M8 with a range of around 400 miles.
