Only twenty “BMW M8 Individual Manufaktur Edition” M8 Coupés to be available to Canadian buyers at market launch in October 2019.

Richmond Hill, ON.
To commemorate the long-anticipated return of the 8 Series to the BMW lineup after a hiatus of two decades, and to celebrate the launch of the new halo within the BMW portfolio, BMW Canada and BMW M have collaborated to bring forth the “BMW M8 Individual Manufaktur Editions” which have been designed exclusively for the Canadian market and debut as the first special-edition M8’s in the world.

Based on the forthcoming 2020 BMW M8 Competition Coupé, the M8 Individual Manufaktur Editions will feature extraordinary craftsmanship and be available in two exclusive BMW Individual colors: the Fire Red Edition paying homage to the original and renowned M8 Coupé prototype from the early 90’s, while the Frozen Black Edition speaks to the M8 Coupé’s dominant position amongst luxury sports coupes. Ten of each special edition will be produced.

Equipped with the most powerful production engine ever produced by BMW M, a twin-turbo V8 with 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque on tap, the M8 Competiton Coupé springs from 0 to 100 km/h in a breathtaking 3.2 seconds, a definitive statement of the new M8 family’s credentials as the new top performance models in the M brand’s lineup

“BMW M is delighted to be collaborating with BMW Canada to launch the very first M8 Individual Manufaktur Editions worldwide” stated Marcus Flasch, CEO of BMW M GmbH, adding: “As one of the strongest markets globally for BMW M, Canada is a natural market in which to introduce these ultra-exclusive exclusive flagship models which are poised to fulfill the promise of the original M8 prototype”.

Both special editions will feature BMW Individual Full Merino Leather in an exclusive two-tone Sakhir Orange/Black treatment with Sakhir Orange contrast stitiching throughout the cabin. The unique interior will be further identified with a “BMW Individual Manufaktur” inscription on the carbon fibre cupholder and wireless charging tray cover.

The exclusive Individual exterior colors of the special editions are further highlighted with M Performance carbon fibre exterior components which emphasize the dynamic, elegant motor racing style and heritage of the new BMW M8 Coupé.

M Performance carbon fibre side skirts provide additional visual length elegance, while the M Performance carbon fibre kidney grille and M Performance carbon fibre side air curtain vents ensure an extremely striking and functional appearance.

Opening the hood reveals another impressive piece of racing-inspired hardware, a carbon fibre engine cover. With an exposed carbon fibre finish, these components are elaborately crafted by hand and mutually harmonized. Sealed with a clear finish and a high-gloss polish, they are UV and temperature-resistant.

“It is a testimony to the passion of legions of BMW M enthusiasts across the country that BMW Canada is in a position to bring the exclusive M8 Individual Manufaktur Editions to market to showcase the launch of the all-new BMW M8 Series family” enthused Kevin Marcotte, National Manager of BMW M at BMW Canada.

The 2020 BMW M8 Individual Manufaktur Edition M8 Coupés will debut at select Canadian BMW Retailers in October 2019 with an MSRP of $198,000.

While I don't care for the wheels (..or any of BMW's current wheels minus the X3M), I like the colors and interior appointments of these two ///M8's.

Ok.....

Perhaps this explains BMW's sales issues if a Country of 30 Million is one of their strongest M Markets.

Wow this is early to be doing special editions. I know this car will not make a second cycle but Is the M8 coupe going to be out of production sooner than the 7 year life cycle?

Also what would it cost to do this on your own? The contrast stitching is very nice. I don't know what that price equates to in the US but I feel it's priced very high. This is only cosmetic upgrades with same power not sure it's worth it.

So many questions. I wonder what the US special editions will be? If I'm totally honest in my opinion if it doesn't come with more power or less weight, or a titanium exhaust it's not really of more value. It will depreciate just the same as any other M8 coupe.

Finally a well thought out and executed special edition that is visually appealing.

BMW Canada knows how to spec their cars better than BMWUSA. Goes way back to the E36 with euro spec motor. More recently the option list on the M3 CS for Canada was more thought out vs the US spec with the bundled Exec Pack.

I think in one of the recent updates to the BMW pipeline thread we found out that BMW is going to discontinue the 8 series coupe earlier than anticipated and just hang onto the 8er gran coupe for the full life cycle. That would certainly make sense for the timing of these early special editions.

Yeah I saw that article and it does make sense that's the reason for the special editions so soon.

Well done...one of the best special edition and/or first edition spec'ed M cars I've seen. I could take either color option and be more than happy. Really well done.

A car with a name that makes you look like you can't spell. Who comes up with these names?

If they had to do this, why not just call it a "First Edition?"
