2022 BMW 8-Series vs. Its Competition

2022 BMW 8-Series Competition Coupe Angular Front Exterior View
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The 8-Series rivals bigger four-door luxury cars and smaller two-door sports cars.

The Mercedes AMG GT 4-Door Coupe can be outfitted with the track capability of the M8 Competition, while the S-Class sedan aims at pure luxury.

The Audi RS7 also rivals the Gran Coupe with its combination of power, sleek looks, and technology.

Sports car buyers might want to consider the refined Lexus LC or even the benchmark Porsche 911, which is also refined but ready to slay a racetrack as well.
