Even the leanest, meanest BMW M8 is a candidate for an M Performance Parts makeover, apparently, with a range of add-ons already available.

You'd think the BMW M8 was already about as M as it could possibly be, right? Wrong!

BMW has revealed the car's M Performance Parts catalogue just two days after launching its new 'Porsche Turbo killer', allowing owners tack a range of carbon-fibre bits onto their new M8.

According to official M materials, the Performance Parts are designed to supplement the existing Carbon Package. The catalogue includes a front grille, air intake surrounds and splitter elements in the lightweight weave, along with side mirrors, side skirts and a full carbon diffuser.

The carbon is sealed with a clear finish and polished, both of which make it resistant to UV, high temperatures and car washes according to M.

There are lightweight wheels, behind which hide a set of uprated M Performance brake pads. BMW says their compound is derived from the brand's endurance racing pads, for shorter braking distances and a greater ability to manage heat.

That does have us wondering why all M8 buyers don't just get the best brakes as standard, given it's the BMW performance flagship, but that's besides the point.

Inside, there's a new Performance Pro steering wheel. It's wrapped in Alcantara, and the metal inserts are now coated in carbon-fibre. The paddles are also carbon, naturally. It can be coupled with M Performance floor mats, which are good for a 10 second speed bump around the Nurburgring. Not really.

Rounding out the accessory pack is a car cover, complete with the M Performance logo and a set of kidney grilles on the outside.
