    Does the porky 2020 BMW G15 M850i xDrive actually handle well? Laptime test

    The answer to if the M850i is a good handler depends on what you expect out of it. For a heavy all wheel drive GT car to be 8/100's off the Jaguar SVR sports car is an impressive feat. Yet, it also trails the BMW F90 M5 sedan by over a second.

    That actually points well to the performance to be expected out of the M8. It will certainly top the M5 as it will have slightly more power, slightly less weight, and have a lower center of gravity.

    The laptime is decent:

    More important;y, there is no drama to it. The car certainly appears to have a bit of understeer (not a shocker) but the lap almost looks leisurely.

    Based on this the M8 will stun.
