It’s time for the ultimate BMW drag race - most powerful ICE vs most powerful EV!

We’ve got Mat lining up in the BMW M8 Competition, and he’s facing off against Yianni in the New BMW iX M60!

So let’s check out the stats. Starting with the M8, it’s powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 that can deliver 625hp and 750Nm. It tips the scales at 1,975kg, and to buy a new one today it’ll set you back around £110k.

Then we have the iX M60. It’s equipped with a 105kWh battery pack as well as two electric motors. Combined these produce 619hp and an eye-watering 1,100Nm of torque! It’s pretty heavy mind, at 2,584kg, and it’s slightly more expensive than the M8, at £117,000.

So the horsepower is pretty similar, but the iX has way more pulling power. Will the extra weight be its downfall? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
