— What's new in this update ( Euro Masters Update (v6.6)).

The BMW M8 GTE is an endurance grand tourer (GT) car constructed by the German automobile manufacturer BMW. It was developed in late 2016 and made its competitive début in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA WEC for the 2018 season, and thus marking BMW Motorsport's return to 24 Hours of Le Mans after a six-year hiatus. BMW chief engineer Dominic Harlow designed this car.

The M8 GTE is the first car manufactured by BMW Motorsport from the ground up as a LM GTE homologated vehicle, rather than based off an existing design. It has a 4.0 litre biturbo V8 engine that produces between 500-600 bhp (brake horsepower).

For upgrades, including PR values, please see the project page BMW M8 GTE, please be aware PR values can vary, depending on the upgrade order. Note: The only way to capture the PR data properly is as follows:

  1. Cloud save
  2. Capture and complete one upgrade at a time, from base
  3. Pay gold to complete any R$ purchases
  4. Check the data and complete the next upgrade, one at a time
  5. Capture & complete all R$ upgrades before starting Icon Gold upgrades
  6. Double check the data captured actually equals the R$ upgrade data (Base PR + R$ upgrade data = Max PR w/ R$)
  7. Capture the car data for PR Max cash, (PR, Top Speed, Acc., Braking, Cornering, Cost, Parts) - change the device's settings between imperial and metric (Settings > Display > Display Speed: MPH | KPH) for top speed MPH/KPH and braking ft/m, do not use a calculation.
  8. Continue to capture the remaining data, as before, one at a time, pay gold to complete R$ upgrades
  9. Once all data has been captured double check the data captured actually equals the fully upgraded car data (Base PR + upgrade data = PR Fully upgraded)
  10. Once the car is fully upgraded, capture the car data for Max PR w/ Icon Gold, (PR, Top Speed, Acc., Braking, Cornering, Cost, Parts) - change the device's settings between imperial and metric (Settings > Display > Display Speed: MPH | KPH) for top speed MPH/KPH and braking ft/m, do not use a calculation.
  11. Cloud restore (to get all the gold back)

It is very time-consuming!
