The BMW M850i xDrive Coupé First Edition is a rare breed, offering
all the benefits and attributes of 8 Series Coupé but, with only a
handful of units available in the UK, it possesses absolute exclusivity.
The First Edition is a spellbinding luxury sports car featuring an exclusive interior trim taken from the BMW Individual range as well as an exhaustive equipment list to go with its sporty, elegant design.
This exclusive special edition will be launched in June 2019. 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 Coupé First Edition will be produced in a limited quantity of 400 at the BMW Dingolfing plant in May, and ten will be destined for the UK.
The exterior paint finish, light alloy wheels and interior trim will set the BMW M850i xDrive Coupé First Edition apart. The BMW Individual special paint finish, Frozen Barcelona Blue metallic, has been specifically developed for this model. This, 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. Also included is the M Carbon roof and an M Carbon exterior package as standard.
The exclusive interior of the BMW M850i xDrive Coupé 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 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 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. In addition, the First Edition includes the Visibility, Technology and Premium packages as standard.
