BMW’s long-awaited return to the highest ranks of prototype racing comes in 2023, as the German manufacturer teams up with chassis partner Dallara and team partner Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing to bring the BMW M Hybrid V8 to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Built to a new set of global prototype regulations, two M Hybrid V8s will compete in IMSA’s premier GTP class, but countless more reproductions of the car are set to debut on iRacing before its first racing lap.


Years of coordinated efforts in both North America and Europe to create a unified top-level rule set have allowed top-tier manufacturers to return to the prototype ranks, with BMW becoming one of the first to announce its involvement. The M Hybrid V8 produces approximately 640 horsepower out of its four-liter powerplant alone, with its electric motor able to add even more boost.
