BMW Individual Manufaktur has opened up a new dimension in exclusivity by looking beyond our planet and bringing the night sky into the M850i xDrive Coupe.

05 Jan 2019 | International News : Germany


For over 25 years now, the BMW Individual Manufaktur customisation facility in Garching near Munich has been producing exceptionally high-quality equipment features, extraordinary special edition models and spectacular one-offs - all sporting a highly distinctive design and further enriched by the world's finest, most precious materials.

The extra-terrestrial meteorite fragments have now been incorporated into the cabin by BMW Individual Manufaktur
And the bespoke styling specialists have now opened up a new dimension in exclusivity by looking beyond our planet and bringing the night sky into the car. In the BMW Individual M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky, applications made from meteoritic material grace selected controls.

Human fascination with the infinite vastness of the universe is also mirrored in the illuminated constellations of stars on the centre console and in the surface design of the luxury sports car's trim finishers, seat backrests, brake discs and exterior add-on parts, which draws inspiration from celestial bodies.

The BMW Individual M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky will be presented in the run-up to an exceptionally intense meteor shower expected to take place overnight from 3 to 4 January 2019. The show of shooting stars will begin when the Earth briefly passes through the orbit of the asteroid 2003 EH, during which time fragments from the asteroid will enter our planet's atmosphere and burn up.

Inlays made from meteorite material have also been incorporated into the door sill finishers of the BMW Individual M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky
On rare occasions, smaller rocks in space penetrate our planet's protective shield and fall to Earth as meteorites. Some of these extra-terrestrial fragments have now been incorporated into the cabin of the BMW Individual M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky.

By employing materials that are literally out of this world, BMW Individual Manufaktur has succeeded in giving the car unique and highly original aesthetic appeal and, in the process, pushed back the boundaries once again of what can be achieved when designing a car interior.

The meteoritic rock adorns the whole of the centre console's trim plate, the start/stop button for the V8 engine, the selector lever for the eight-speed Steptronic transmission and the Touch Controller for the iDrive system, creating a visual and tactile effect unparalleled in the automotive sector.

Inlays made from meteorite material have also been incorporated into the door sill finishers, together with an illuminated model badge. All of which ensures the BMW Individual M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky embodies luxury and exclusivity at an unprecedented level.
