The BMW 8 Series Golden Thunder Version is the German carmaker ‘s new Limited Edition Model. Such versions come with different aesthetic improvements on both the inside and the outside. The limited version will be offered in all three body type versions-Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe. Mechanically, though, they stay the same as their regular equivalents.
That brings the exclusive model its name (Golden Thunder Model) is the yellow highlights all over the 8 Series exterior. And with a Sapphire black metallic or Frozen black metallic finish will one get the exclusive version. The gold accents surround the whole lower portion of the vehicle, extending from the front aprons to the side skirts, reaching all the way down to the rear bumper’s lower section. The gold finishes only the 20-inch M plates, wing mirrors and M boot lip spoiler. For fact, both of the regular car’s chrome highlights shift to matte black, as do the brake callipers.
All is covered inside in black Merino leather trim and the seat headrests are engraved ‘Version Golden Thunder’ on them. Sport gold is often built into the center panel in the interiors. The roof lining is coated in Anthracite Alcantara on the versions of the Coupe and Gran Coupe. All the special edition models also come equipped with BMW’s crystal gear selector ‘Crafted clarity’ and a premium surround sound system from Bowers & Wilkins.
