BMW fans who’ve been waiting for the right limited-edition build may now have reason to pull the trigger and drive home a new car. The German automaker recently introduced its exclusive M850i xDrive “First Edition”, and it looks spectacular.
Limited to just 400 examples, the acutely realized limited-ed take on the 8-Series Coupe is designed to be a head-turner: just look at how it stands out with a glimmering coat of Frozen Barcelona Blue metallic paint from BMW Individual. Customized exterior elements like black tailpipes, high-gloss accents, and 20-inch M light alloy wheels are also part of the package.
Inside, a Merino full leather trim in White/Night Blue, Night Blue M leather-wrapped steering wheel, Black Piano trim, an Alcantara roof liner, and, of course, a fitting “First Edition” badge define the variation. A sound system from boutique audio brand Bowers & Wilkins doesn’t hurt, either.
It’s unclear how many were earmarked for the U.S. market. Prices are said to start around $160K.
