  • The BMW M8 is heading to Le Mans

Behold the new BMW M8 race auto that will be taking to top circuits around the globe in 2018.

The vehicle is still heavily camouflaged but it's easy to make out the general shape. Even though the 8 Series has yet to make its official debut - still a concept for now - the carmaker's motorsport division has released a teaser of what the race auto could possible look like. Once the production 8 Series is revealed, expect BMW to reveal the race auto in the metal. The two are being developed in parallel, just like Ford did with its GT supercar.

BMW has given positive feedback following the first track test of its M8 GTE auto ahead of its debut in the FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar in 2018. The auto will be replacing the current M6-based race vehicle in the latter.

The M8 GTE was given its first extensive on-track test at the Lausitzring in Germany last week, completing three days of running with Martin Tomczyk and Maxime Martin.

"Starting with the 2018 season, we want to further expand our activities in GT racing and compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship, as well as the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship", Marquardt said earlier this year.

BMW announced past year that it would be returning to the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2018 with its new M8 GTE vehicle, launching a double programme in both of the major global sportscar championships.

"I had great fun with the auto". "We got a lot of kilometers under our belt, and gathered a lot of data".

There are still many more tests to undergo, including at circuits in North America. Its race debut will be at the 24 Hours of Daytona next January, and there's lots more testing to happen between now and then. A reveal, however, should take place in late 2017.
