The two-door model gets the swept-back headlamps, sculpted bonnet with muscular character lines, wide kidney grille, and aerodynamic creases on the sides. The split taillights taking prominence at the rear, while the bumpers look aggressive and sport larger air intakes and sportier alloy wheels. The M8 Coupe uses carbon fibre in abundance, especially for the roof, while the flared Aluminium wings with M gills and M8 designation emphasise track width and wheel size. The model comes with a rear spoiler lip, M-spec rear diffuser and a double flow exhaust system with twin tailpipes.
