BMW Reveals 8 Series Haute Couture Edition

Special Editions / Comments

This one comes from BMW of Switzerland.

BMW has a fantastic product in the 8 Series, a car that's so good it begs the question of what the M8 exists for. The 8 Series is also one of the most beautiful BMWs in recent years, but that hasn't stopped the German automaker's various regional head offices from coming up with special editions to enhance appeal. We've seen a Golden Thunder Edition, a Kyoto Edition, and most recently, the 8 Series Collector's edition. That's not the last of them, with BMW Switzerland launching the 8 Series Haute Couture Edition. Limited to just 10 units and only available in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, this will be a seriously rare car.

The special edition is based on the convertible, which is available with its soft-top finished in Navy Blue, Bordeaux Red, and Brown. However, if you don't like Frozen (matte) Brilliant White metallic paint, look elsewhere. Of course, there's more to the car than Individual paint with a contrasting roof.

Inside, BMW Individual is also responsible for the special upholstery made up of full Merino leather in a stunning Opal White. The theme of contrast continues with the stitching options, which include Polar Blue, Fire Red, and Hazelnut. Obviously, these colors are meant to pair with the color of the roof for a subtle and cohesive touch of class.

To let occupants know that they're in something special, the center console features an engraved plaque made of precision cast metal with the script "Edition Haute Couture" and the number of the example. Finally, buyers get a tailor-made vehicle cover in - you guessed it - blue, red, or brown and embroidering that reads "Haute Couture". Sadly, there's no mention of price, but with Individual paint and full Merino leather, as well as the rarity factor and the fact that the car costs around $100k in base format in the US, expect this to be very expensive. At least you're getting the range-topping M850i with 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.
