In the BMW M Studio Garching, BMW M CEO Markus Flasch has just introduced to the world – the first eight M8 Gran Coupe First Edition models. (Listen to our podcast with Markus Flasch). The limited edition M8 Gran Coupe is painted in the stunning Aurora Diamant Green Metallic color which was first featured on the Concept version of the M8 Gran Coupe. Only 400 of the First Edition models will be made and a numbered plaque will show their owners just how rare they are.
The BMW kidney grille, side air breather trim, door mirror and window-surround trim, exterior badging and door sill plates are finished in Gold Bronze, mirroring the M8 Gran Coupe Concept vehicle.
The interior is finished in BMW Individual Ivory White/Tartufo Full Merino leather and features Individual Piano Black trim with a “First Edition 1/400” on the center console door. Exclusive 20-inch Forged M Star-Spoke wheels finished in Gold Bronze help set the BMW M8 Gran Coupe First Edition cars apart.
Under the hood of the BMW M8 Gran Coupe First Edition we’ll find the same powertrain as on the standard M8 Gran Coupe Competition. That means we get a 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo mill with 625 HP (617 hp in the US) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque hooked up to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive. Production for the limited U.S. M8 Gran Coupe First Edition cars is set to begin in March 2020 and deliveries will take place shortly after.
This will be a limited-run version of the M8 Gran Coupe, with only 50 units reaching the US market.
