Earlier this year, BMW announced a limited edition run of the newly unveiled BMW M850i Coupe. Labeled as the Frozen Barcelona Blue Metallic 2019 BMW M850i First Edition, the special run of luxury coupes was limited to 400 units worldwide and came with a pricey tag – around $130,000. Hendrick BMW Charlotte is one of the first dealers to get the special model in their showroom and they’re sharing some photos with us.
The newly developed BMW Individual special paint finish Frozen Barcelona Blue metallic is paired 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. Available optional features also include, inter alia, an M Carbon roof and an M Carbon exterior package.
A special feature offered for the edition models is the BMW Individual full leather trim Merino in the combination Ivory White/Night Blue. The interior design features also comprise the M leather-covered steering wheel as well as the BMW Individual Alcantara roof liner, each finished in the color Night Blue. Inside the car, BMW Individual interior trim strips in a Black Piano finish, which are 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.
The special edition model is powered by the same 390 kW/530 hp, eight-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The V8 powerplant is combined with an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission and transfers engine power to the road via the BMW xDrive four-wheel drive technology.
