BMW introduced the flagship coupe M850i in the Night Sky versionJanuary 3, 2019
The guys from BMW used to decorate the cabin pieces of meteorites. In general, the final look of the car was very unusual. In addition, some details for this version of the coupe were printed on a 3D printer.
The division of the Bavarian brand BMW, to create individual complete sets of serial models, decided to publish the image of the flagship coupe M850i Night Sky. The presentation of this version of the car is confined to the meteor shower that happened on the night of January 3. It is reported that the performance of Night Sky will receive trim from meteorites. In general, the final look of the car turned out to be very unusual.
The center console, the engine start and stop button, the top gear knob and the iDrive “washer”, as well as the door sills are encrusted with pieces of a real meteorite.
As the representatives of the Bavarian automaker themselves say, such a fascinating combination of materials was achieved after the formation of iron-nickel crystals at meteors over a period – it took about 10 million years.
When looking at some of the elements of the car you might think that you are looking at the constellation of stars. A new pattern in the BMW Individual’s piggy bank is called Widmanstätten. A relief pattern appeared on the armchairs and the ceiling. Even the brake discs received an unusual pattern, and the rims are made in a new design. Unusual design can be seen on the front splitter, as well as side air intakes behind the wheels. Performed by Night Sky, the flagship coupe received a body with a deep non-metallic shade of black.
The guys from BMW Individual also note that for the new M850i, the brake calipers were printed on a 3D printer. According to BMW engineers, these parts are 30% lighter than usual.
