Singapore. BMW Asia, Performance Motors Limited and Performance Munich Autos today launched the first-ever BMW M8 Competition Coupe at the Singapore Motorshow 2020. The annual motoring event, held from 9 – 12 January 2020 at Suntec Singapore Convention Centre (Level 4, Booth 106/107), is also the setting for the ASEAN premiere of the first-ever BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe.
“2020 is going to be an exciting year as BMW continues on its product offensive. We’re thrilled to kick off this year with the launch of first-ever BMW M8 Competition Coupe, the fastest production model in the BMW range that exemplifies the purist M feeling in a luxury sports car,” said Mr. Christopher Wehner, Managing Director, BMW Group Asia.
“Working closely with Performance Motors Limited and Performance Munich Autos, we’ll continue to provide customers with the power of choice – whether it be high-performance models such as the BMW M8 Competition Coupe or plug-in hybrid models such as the upcoming BMW X3 xDrive30e. Every BMW model promises joy behind the wheel, and we’re confident our customers will find a vehicle that meets their needs and exceeds their expectations,” Mr. Wehner added.
“The annual Singapore Motorshow is one of the most important motoring events in the year,” said Mr. Arnt Bayer, Managing Director, Performance Motors Limited. “In addition to giving customers an opportunity to experience the wide range of models we offer, it’s the perfect setting for the ASEAN premiere of the first-ever BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. Set to be launched in Singapore in Q1, the first-ever BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe brings the four-door coupe concept into the premium compact segment for the first time.”
The first-ever BMW M8 Competition Coupe.
This new BMW M high-performance version takes the BMW 8 Series model range to an even higher level of performance, delivering supreme performance and an unmistakable blend of dynamism, agility, and precision. The first-ever BMW M8 Competition Coupe is a 2+2 seater and benefits from the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW M for a production model: the 4.4-litre V8 with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and a peak output of 625 hp.
The first-ever BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe.
This car is the perfect choice for customers for whom sportiness, cutting-edge connectivity and ample on-board space rank highly. As its sporting looks imply, the first-ever BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has its sights set on establishing the dynamic yardstick in its class. The advanced BMW front-wheel-drive architecture along with an array of other technological developments provides an outstanding toolkit for the job at hand. Furnished with cutting-edge chassis technology and innovative systems such as the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, the four-door coupe raises the bar in terms of driving dynamics and agility, and sets new benchmarks in the premium compact segment.
The new BMW R 1250 GS Adventure.
For decades, the boxer engine in the BMW Motorrad GS Adventure models has stood for distinctive, powerful and reliable propulsion when it comes to dynamic riding along country roads, sporty touring or enjoying long-distance trips and motorcycling adventures to the full. With the extensively further advanced boxer engine, the new BMW R 1250 GS Adventure achieves a whole new level of power and torque. Refinement and running smoothness have been significantly optimised – especially within the lower engine speed range. The new engine offers improved emission and fuel consumption levels as well as a particularly satisfying sound. For this purpose, BMW ShiftCam Technology has been used for the first time in the serial production of BMW Motorrad engines.

The Singapore Motorshow 2020 marks the start of a year-long collaboration with Spartan. With a full range of BMW X models from the BMW X1 to the BMW X6 evoking sportiness and adventure, BMW is proud to anchor Spartan Race Singapore this year as the Presenting Partner.
