From the moment that BMW Motorsport has confirmed its entry in the category GTE Pro of the WEC ahead of the season 2018, began to speculate on the vehicle that you will use the German brand in his return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Ruled out the BMW Z4 after his long competitive life and also the new BMW Z5, a vehicle which shared roots at the same level of production with the reborn Toyota Supra, everything seemed to indicate that BMW Motorsport could focus their efforts on one of the two vehicles that currently already has in the competition, the BMW M6 or the BMW M4.
Within the catalogue of the brand is the BMW M4 DTM that will be used in the Championship, German Touring car and the BMW M6, a model that competes under specifications GT3 championship as the Blancpain GT Series or under specification GTLM in the united States.

In this aspect, the BMW M8 GTE is a good choice to take into account, ahead of that yes your premiere regarding the BMW 8 Series and the future BMW M8, the models that will arrive in 2018 and 2019 to the dealers.
