At $200K, the purchase decision would be based on a purely emotional response. Fantastic car nevertheless regardless of price.

I wish the seats backs would be in the same seat leather color rather than black. Has a cheap plastic feel it the look even though it's leather...

The question is, is this a good investment? Will it hold value?

No. Especially not for 200k. You're better off buying a Weissach GT3RS and sitting on it for that price range.

Those are not words uttered in combination with BMW, Mercedes or even the majority of Porsche models. In fact, just about any car.

Cars are simply a pleasurable and enjoyable way to waste money

Amen. But I would rather build my own and save $25k minus the special edition which although is nice I am not into 90s green and gold.

Just looked at the site; sure looks like a non-comp. model.

Those will likely be sold at a discount from the "near" get-go like the M5 FE's.
I am with Noushy on the color scheme; it somewhat worked for the prototype but here it feels dated...

The one thing I wish BMW would do for any numbered editions is to actually number the cars like limited art.
No. 23/400, 24/400, etc. That would actually make it a bit more special...

I want to take this opportunity and point out how M massively improved the front of the car with their front bumper, particularly those two veins pointing outwards. Somehow the traditional BMW hanging mouth bumper just doesnt fit the bigger kidneys. It feels tucked on. Everybody goes for the M sport package, when in truth the basic 8 design with a similar bumper to the one on the M8 looks better. Yeah i know that's the concept car on the right, but it's the best pic that i could find without having to photoshop stuff together myself. Basically they took the concept and ruined it.
