BMW Australia has confirmed just nine examples of the second-generation 8 Series’ Heritage Edition are up for grabs, with deliveries to start in the fourth quarter of this year.
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 8 Series launching in Australia, the Heritage Edition is offered in Gran Coupe sedan ($189,900 plus on-road costs), Coupe ($192,900) and Convertible ($207,900) body-styles.
And despite costing $15,000 less than the entry-level 840i grade it’s based upon, the Heritage Edition is available in exclusive three paintwork-upholstery combinations, with one of each on offer per body-style.

Inside, a 464W Harmon Kardon sound system, a head-up display, heated and cooled front seats, heated armrests, Walknappa leather-trimmed dashboard and upper door trims, an Anthracite Alcantara headline (excluding Convertible), CraftedClarity glass applications and Piano Black trim feature.

Like other 840i variants of the Porsche 911 and Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe rivals, the Heritage Edition is motivated by a 250kW/500Nm 3.0-litre turbo-petrol inline six-cylinder engine, which drives the rear wheels via an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.
