Munich. Fascinating dynamic performance is the striking quality of the BMW 8 Series models. The premium automobile manufacturer's luxury sports car is now due to be enhanced with a touch of extravagance in all three body variants. Specific design accentuations in gold along with high-end BMW Individual equipment features for both the exterior and interior ensure an incomparable blend of sporty flair and luxury.

The BMW 8 Series Edition Golden Thunder demonstrates once again the capacity of BMW Individual to turn special vehicles into unique automobiles for customers with the very highest expectations in terms of style and quality. The exclusive design exterior and interior design features add unmistakable accentuations that give the edition models the character of a custom-built vehicle.

The Edition Golden Thunder is available for all model variants of the new BMW 8 Series Coupé, the new BMW 8 Series Convertible and the new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé – from the BMW 840i and the BMW 840d xDrive through to the BMW M850i xDrive. The edition vehicles will be produced at the BMW plant in Dingolfing starting from September 2020. The M sports package is always a standard feature in these vehicles.

A body finish in Sapphire Black metallic or Frozen Black metallic and carefully selected colour accentuations in gold underscore the athleticism of the luxury sports cars. The dark look is supplemented by BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line with extended features and black brake calipers for the M sports brake system. Here, a striking contrast is created by means of golden accentuation lines running from the front apron to the side skirts and on into the rear apron. Other features finished in gold are the exterior mirror caps, the M rear spoiler (exclusively available for the BMW 8 Series Coupé) and the 20-inch M light alloy wheels in double-spoke design.

Sports car flair and individual luxury are also combined in the interior of the edition models to create an extravagant ambience. This is ensured not only by the extended BMW Individual Merino leather trim in black with the “Edition Golden Thunder” inscription embroidered on the front headrests and the BMW Individual Alcantara Anthracite roof liner for the BMW 8 Series Coupé and BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé, but in particular by the interior trim finishers in Aluminium Mesh Effect Gold. On the centre console, the finely structured and high-end shimmering surfaces are supplemented with an edition emblem. The edition models also feature CraftedClarity glass applications for selected controls and the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System.

I love that they say "style". It's so awful. And pointless. Just bring out the M3 and M4 already. And build a bloody M5 and M3 wagon for gods sake BMW. Instead of X4/5/6/7/8/9/10s that create choices nobody needs.

A lot of yellow. Mirrors ...
IMHU - to the United Arab Emirates, there are many clients. Alpina with its stripes looks better.

looks nice and all but Thunder edition? Thor's Hammer Edition with some decals would have cut it better.

Looks incomplete without the screaming chicken on the hood. Will that be an M-Performance accessory?

BMW WTF with ugly car designs and tacky 'editions.' Seriously... Taking cues from the Hyundai Kona Iron Man edition?

Perfect for the Chinese market.

BMW AG is pulling rabbits out of hats to sell 8 series.

Strange direction. What I do see, ignoring the tacky gold nonsense and just focusing on the 8 coupe, is a reminder the new 4's could've looked like a smaller version the new 8's (the silhouette basically is) and already would have been more aggressive and modern than the old, just not super ugly. No reason the 8 grill wasn't already aggressive and different enough, and no reason whatsoever for removing the Hofmeister kink that looks perfectly natural on the 8.
