Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Supra has larger front tires than the 8 Series (F:255/35R19 & R:275/35R19 vs. F:245/35R20 & R:275/30R20).

Suspension and Handling

The Supra’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the 8 Series’ (53.1% to 46.9%). This gives the Supra more stable handling and braking.

The Supra 3.0 Premium handles at 1.07 G’s, while the M850i xDrive Coupe pulls only .98 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

For better maneuverability, the Supra’s turning circle is 2.9 feet tighter than the 8 Series’ (36.1 feet vs. 39 feet).


The Toyota Supra may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 1100 to 1350 pounds less than the BMW 8 Series.

The Supra is 1 foot, 6.7 inches shorter than the 8 Series, making the Supra easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.
