Photo Gallery: BMW M8 Gran Coupe First Edition
Today we finally got to take a look at the BMW M8 Gran Coupe in all its glory. The car is arguably the best looking BMW launched in the last decade and it has the potential to become an icon over the years. For those really eager to get their hands on one, BMW has prepared a surprise in the shape of the BMW M8 Gran Coupe First Edition. This will be a limited-run version of the M8 Gran Coupe, with only 50 units reaching the US market.
Based on the Competition model, the First Edition cars will be finished in Individual Diamant Green Metallic, a color exclusive to this limited edition model. 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. Basically, as you can see from the photos, this is a street-legal version of the BMW M8 Gran Coupe Concept that wowed crowds before the official car came out.
It’s a stunner no matter how you look at it and we can’t wait to see it on public roads, not just in some fancy pictures.
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.
