While the BMW 8-Series Coupe reached most dealerships this past December, BMW has come up with yet another exclusive version of the new car, created with exclusive touches from BMW Individual – the department responsible for incredibly luxurious BMW vehicles.
On Monday, the company unveiled the all-new M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition that will hit showrooms around the world in the second half of this year. The special edition is crafted by BMW Individual, the same department that gave us the extra-terrestrial 8-Series with meteoric elements.

The new First Edition is finished in Frozen Barcelona Blue Metallic, making it the first ever production to sport the colour. It is paired with BMW Individual division’s High Gloss Shadow Line accent package finishing the side window surrounds, grille, side gills, and tailpipes in black. In addition to this, the lightweight 20-inch wheels come from BMW’s M division featuring a Y-spoke design and black paint. Other optional exterior features include a carbon fibre roof and M Carbon exterior package.
The interior oozes luxury with a full Merino leather upholstery in a combination of Ivory and Night Blue shades. The Alcantara headliner is finished in Night Blue. Piano Black accents are spread throughout the cabin with First Edition engraved in the centre stack. Additionally, a Bowers and Wilkins sound system is standard.

Adding an extra touch of luxury, BMW Individual crafted the start-stop button, iDrive controller, volume control knob, and gear selection in “Clarity Glass” which mimics the look of crystal.
At the heart of it all is the same 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 as any other M850i xDrive model. It is capable of 523hp and 749Nm of torque. A total of 400 examples of the First Edition will be built and will go on sale this April.
