Munich. The new BMW 8 Series Coupe is able in a unique way to inspire with its dynamic driving characteristics, whilst at the same time fascinating with luxurious equipment features and a sporty, elegant design. Moreover, maximum exclusiveness is also guaranteed with regard to the individual configuration of the new luxury sports car.

The BMW M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition (combined fuel consumption: 9.8 – 9.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 224 – 221 g/km) being launched in the spring of 2019, will provide proof of this. Now, for the first time, the drive and suspension technology of the two-door model, which was developed incorporating motor racing know-how, can now be combined with exclusive BMW Individual exterior and interior equipment features.

The BMW M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition will be produced in a limited quantity of 400 at the BMW Dingolfing plant between April and June 2019.

The exterior paint finish, light alloy wheels and interior trim will lend the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition both an individual and expressive character. The fascinating exterior appearance is above all due to the newly developed BMW Individual special paint finish Frozen Barcelona Blue metallic being applied on a BMW model for the very first time. It is combined with the upgraded BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line, which, in addition to the side window surrounds, also includes the BMW kidney grille frame and slats, the air breather applications and tailpipe trims finished in black. The dark accents featured on the special edition model are complemented by 20-inch M light alloy wheels with a Y-spoke design finished in Jet Black. Available optional features also include, inter alia, an M Carbon roof and an M Carbon exterior package.



The exclusive aura inside the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition is also enhanced by specific BMW Individual design features, a fine selection of colours and materials and particularly high-quality equipment. A special feature offered for the edition models is the BMW Individual full leather trim Merino in the novel colour combination Ivory White/Night Blue. The harmoniously matching interior design features also comprise the M leather-covered steering wheel as well as the BMW Individual Alcantara roof liner, each finished in the colour Night Blue. Inside the car, BMW Individual interior trim strips in a Black Piano finish, which are located in the centre of the cockpit, bear the lettering “First Edition 1/400”. Moreover, the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System and the Crafted Clarity glass applications on the start/stop button, the iDrive Controller, the volume control and the illuminated gearshift lever complement the luxurious interior ambience.

The expressive personality of the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition is conveyed by its exterior and interior design and goes hand in hand with outstanding performance characteristics. The special edition model is powered by a 390 kW/530 hp, eight-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The high-torque V8 power plant is combined with an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission and transfers engine power effortlessly to the road thanks to intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel drive technology and a suspension setup that is perfectly tuned to the vehicle concept.

The fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption figures were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany. The range shown considers the different sizes of the selected wheels/tyres and the selected items of optional equipment, and may vary during configuration.

I took my car in for a flat a few weeks back and they had one in the show room (not one of these). Looked great on the outside! I was unable to sit inside though, they had the doors locked.

Barcelona blue looks phenomenal. It gives the 8 Series a very cool and sleek contemporary look reminiscent (for me) of the feel of the beautiful city.

I can't wait to see the frozen edition. Thanks for sharing Jason!

Ignoring for a moment the objectives of special edition anything to maximize profitability, this is a great car - no doubt. The slope of the 3 year depreciation curve will still be steep, yet the buyer will be probably price insensitive.

It's an emotional purchase decision for some and I see nothing wrong with it.

The buyer of this vehicle after the three year lease will be just as happy for different reasons.

I don't really understand why someone would invest (a lot) in one of these 'editions' when the M8 is just around the corner. I'm sure there are some out there who will disagree but I simply don't understand. This just screams of yet another BMW attempt to grab quick cash from impatient or less-informed customers.

I have to admit I find BMW's constant stream of needless 'incrementation editions' to be frustrating and also unnecessarily confusing. Over the years we've gone from standard and M models to now: standard, m-performance, m-lites, M, competition, CS, GTS/CSL and then all the pointless 'editions' and LCI-level updates in between. Maybe it's just me? Haha

I was just thinking the same thing.

Donít they typically wait until the end of the cycle for the moronic (non) special editions ??
