BMW has revealed a limited run version of the 8-Series Coupe, called the First Edition. It is based on the M850i xDrive and is limited to just 400 units. It is slated to launch by mid-2019 and will be available in selected markets worldwide.
The M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition is powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The car produces 530 PS of peak power and 750 Nm of torque. Power is channeled to all four wheels and the 0-100 km/hr run takes 3.7 seconds.
On the outside, the car gets a unique shade of paint developed by BMW Individual called Frozen Barcelona Blue metallic. It also features high gloss accents, black tailpipes and 20-inch M light alloy wheels with a Y-spoke design and Jet Black look.
Interior of the M850i xDrive First Edition gets a Merino leather trim in Ivory White and Night Blue combo. The roof is lined in Alcantara while the steering wheel is M leather-wrapped in Night Blue shade. The dashboard of the car is dominated in a Black Piano. The car also gets a ‘First Edition’ badge with the car’s serial number located in front of the gearshift lever. A Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system and Crafted Clarity glass on the start/stop button, iDrive controller, volume control and illuminated gearshift lever are all standard.
Optional extras include a carbon fibre roof and carbon fibre trim for the bumpers, mirror caps and side skirts. Pricing for the new BMW M850i First Edition will be announced after production kicks off at the brand’s Dingolfing factory, in Germany, in April.
