The BMW family of the eighth series is already fully formed — it has a coupe, convertible, four-door Gran Coupe and “charged” M-models, so now it’s time for special versions. On the” eight ” with the Golden Thunder prefix worked specialists of the BMW Individual division, and it differs from the standard models in a special design of the body and interior.
The Golden Thunder version will be available for the 840i, 840d xDrive and M850i xDrive versions with all three body types. There are only two dark body colors to choose from (Sapphire Black and Frozen Black). In contrast to the usual “eights” with the M-package, cars from the new series can boast a Golden-colored decor: it is found on the body kit, mirrors, trunk lid and, of course, 20-inch wheels. The edges of the side Windows and mirror legs are painted black.
The interior is decorated with a large gold insert on the Central tunnel, inscriptions with the name of the special version on the headrests, as well as finishing the volume control, engine start button, iDrive washer and the “automatic” joystick with CraftedClarity glass. In addition, the list of basic equipment for the Golden Thunder version includes the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound system.
