The new BMW 8 Series Edition Golden Thunder demonstrates once again the capacity of BMW Individual to turn special vehicles into unique automobiles for customers with the very highest expectations in terms of style and quality. The exclusive exterior design and interior features add unmistakable touches that give the Edition models the character of a custom-built vehicle.

The Edition vehicles will be produced at the BMW plant in Dingolfing starting from September this year. The M Sport package is always a standard feature in these special edition vehicles.

A body finished in Sapphire Black metallic or Frozen Black metallic is joined by carefully selected colour accents in gold to underscore the athleticism of the sport-luxury automobiles. The dark look is furthered by BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line with extended features and black brake calipers for the M Sport braking system. A striking contrast is created by golden lines running from the front apron to the side skirts and into the rear apron. Also finished in gold are the exterior mirror covers, the M rear spoiler – exclusively for the Coupé, and the 20-inch M light alloy wheels in double-spoke design.
