BMW M Hybrid V8 Debut 24 Hours of Daytona
Making its debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona this past weekend, both BMW M Hybrid V8 vehicles that competed in the race crossed the finish line, with #24 securing sixth place and #25 finishing ninth. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 engine making 631 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, mated to an IMSA-spec electric motor for a hybrid setup.



This vehicle also marks the development of BMW M’s first high-performance hybrid powertrain, and this flagship project will hopefully kick start the transformation of BMW M cars towards electric mobility. Aside from showcaseing he aim of the developers to preserve the unmistakable performance characteristics of BMW M models, it also enriches them with new facets of driving pleasure, whether it be on the road or a racetrack.

This wasn’t a win – but it almost feels like a win. It has been an extremely intense year, particularly since October with testing. I have to say that the testing was not easy, but after the ROAR I got confident as there was reliability there as well as performance. I felt pretty good. A lot can happen in 24 hours. Everybody kept at it, it’s a shame we had the issues with the #25 car early in the race,” said Bobby Rahal, BMW M Team RLL team principal.
