At the end of June, BMW’s Japanese office will open orders for a limited edition BMW 8 Series called the Frozen Black Edition. The edition of the special edition will be 20 cars: five two-doors and 15 Gran Coupe sedans. They will be painted in matt resin black from the BMW Individual catalog, which is matched with black décor and interior trim, and will retail for 15 million yen, which equates to $ 135,300.
The BMW 8 Series Frozen Black Edition is based on the 840i modification with a three-liter inline-six with a capacity of 340 horsepower, an eight-band automatic and rear-wheel drive. All cars in the series are finished in BMW Individual Frozen Black matt, with the grille, tailpipes, 21-inch 728M wheels and M-calipers all in resin black.
The dark aesthetic continues into the cabin. There are M Sport seats, black faux suede headlining, extended Merino leather (the most expensive upholstery available for BMW, preferably Alpine Lavalina) and BMW Individual interior trims in black piano lacquer. The standard equipment of the BMW 8 Series Frozen Black Edition includes a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound system with surround sound and a panoramic roof (Gran Coupe only).
Sales of “cold-black” BMW 8 Series Frozen Black Edition will start at the end of the month. The machines are exclusively for the Japanese market and the company will only accept orders online. The BMW 840i Coupe Frozen Black Edition costs 15 million yen ($ 135,300), the 840i Gran Coupe Frozen Black Edition sedan is 100,000 yen more expensive ($ 900).
