BMW M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition limited to 10 UK customers

The First Edition 8 Series Coupe is a collector's item to be launched in June

Just 10 UK owners will be able to get hold of the ultra-exclusive BMW M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition, a car costing a cool £121,995 and one finished in a special Frozen Barcelona Blue metallic paintwork.

Complementing the BMW Individual paintwork are gloss black window surrounds and kidney grille. Even the tailpipes and 20-inch alloy wheels are finished in Jet Black for a stealthy look, while a carbon roof and exterior pack add a motorsport-inspired look.

Inside, BMW has raided its Individual catalogue, fitting full Merino leather upholstery in contrasting Ivory White and Night Blue, along with a leather steering wheel and Alcantara roof lining, which is also finished in Night Blue. The centre console has a black piano finish and First Edition numbered plaque, while technology includes a Bowers and Wilkins surround sound stereo, and glass inlays for the start/stop button, iDrive controller, volume control and gearlever.

Carbuyer's best-looking cars

There shouldn't be much need to consult the options list because the Visibility, Technology and Premium packs are all included.

Under the bonnet of the M850i xDrive sits a twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine with 523bhp mated to an eight-speed Steptronic sports automatic gearbox. This gets the luxurious 8 Series Coupe from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 155mph. The First Edition will go on sale in June, with a total of 400 scheduled for production.
