A8(M) was the original number of the Renfrew Bypass, west of Glasgow.

The number was initially used for all the M8, as Scotland referred to all motorways (save the M73) by the A road they replaced. Later it became used to only refer to 'Glasgow to Greenock Motorway', with the 'Edinburgh to Glasgow Motorway' being referred to as M8.

The Renfrew bypass opened as M8 but official references to the 'A8(M) Glasgow to Greenock Motorway' continued to be made with reference to the Renfrew and Bishopston bypasses. While only the trunk section of motorway was referred to as such, the non-trunk section from the Glasgow Inner Ring Road outwards may have also carried the number.
