The exclusive BMW M850i First Edition Coupe has been confirmed for Australia, with an initial allocation of just 8 unit priced at $295,000 each.

Arriving in July and part of a highly exclusive production of only 400 global units, the BMW M850i First Edition cuts a fine figure in its bespoke BMW Individual Frozen Barcelona Blue metallic paintwork

Exuding presence, the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe First Edition features a striking array of equipment developed by the BMW Individual artisans.

The Coupe’s exterior lines are accentuated by BMW Individual Frozen Barcelona Blue metallic paintwork, which is offset by Jet Black 20-inch BMW M light alloy wheels in Y- spoke configuration.

Further exterior accents include the extended BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line package, which includes high-gloss black treatment to the famed BMW kidney grille and side air breathers.

The M Carbon Exterior Package, usually a cost option on the regular M850i, is fitted as standard to the First Edition. This includes carbon-fibre front air intake inserts, exterior mirror caps, rear bootlid spoiler, diffuser insert and tailpipe surrounds.

A diamond tweeter is housed in the middle of the instrument panel and features NautilusTM spiral technology for even crisper sound. The Quantam Logic Surround features a seven-band equaliser and the stainless steel finishers feature a FibonacciTM hole pattern design to further purify the sound experience.

Powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 petrol engine, the M850i delivers an impressive 390kW of peak power with a 750Nm torque peak. Sending drive to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox with shift paddles for manual control, the M850i can hit 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, accompanied by a thrilling V8 soundtrack via the standard M Sport Exhaust system.
