BMW’s 7 Series used to be the Bavarian automaker’s top-shelf product, until they introduced the 8 Series in 2018. The 8-Series badge had previously been used on a Grand Tourer in the Nineties, and BMW resurrected it in this form, as well as a four-door executive car. Of course, as with most BMW products, their M Division wanted to get involved, and the result is the BMW M8 which appeared one year later, in 2019. What we’ve got here is a 2020 BMW M8 First Edition 1/400, which as the title suggests, comes from a production run of just 400 First Editions, thus it’s quite a rare and desirable car. It’s got just 9,400 miles on it since new.
The 8 Series in Gran Coupe four door form actually looks more agile and compact than the 7 Series, despite still weighing in at nearly 200 inches in length. This 2020 BMW M8 First Edition 1/400 wears an Aurora Diamant Green that gloriously varies shade depending on lighting conditions. The car rolls on 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport performance rubber, with blue brake calipers peeking from behind. Out back, a menacing set of quad exhausts are present, that can sing a mild-to-wild song, depending on the M Flap Exhaust setting. The interior wears a combination of white and mocha, and offers seating for four occupants, as the rear seats are also bisected by a console containing controls for rear climate and seats. There’s four-zone climate control on board, as well as climate-controlled M Sport seats that are heated at the front and rear, rear sun blinds, Warmth and Comfort Package, Parking Assistant Plus Package, Competition Package and M Driver’s Package. Music is played courtesy of a Bowers & Wilkins high end sound system, and the instrument cluster is fully digital.
As an M Division product, this 2020 BMW M8 First Edition 1/400 packs the S63 4.4L twin turbo V8 that puts out an astonishing 591hp and 553lb-ft, enough to catapult this beast all the way to 190mph thanks to the M Driver’s Package, whilst passing sixty mph from rest in under 3 seconds. Braking is via huge, ventilated discs on all wheels.
