The BMW 8-Series could compete with everything from the Chevrolet Corvette to the Audi R8 supercar, but it most closely vies against two models from German rival Mercedes-Benz.
The AMG-GT comfortably fits four and was made for the track in coupe and convertible iterations, but the new 4-Door Coupe, which is more like a large bean-shaped hatchback, also contends.
The two-door S-Class coupe and cabriolet have more room for four and features a nicer interior than the 8-Series, but we’d really like to take the M8 and the S63 Coupe out on the track.
Any takers? Aston’s DB11 might be priced out of reach, especially since the V-12 is nearly double the M8, but there might not be a purer grand tourer.
On the other end of the spectrum is the gorgeous Lexus LC 500 coupe and, new for 2021, convertible.
