The BMW Individual M850i NIGHT SKY.

This impressive one-off-model from BMW Individual redefines the limits of what is possible.

4 December 2019

There are things that exist only once in this world, and then there are things that are not even of this world. The two have now combined in the shape of Muonionalusta, an iron meteorite that was formed some 4,570 million years ago, and the most exciting and elegant sports car coupé from BMW. With the BMW Individual M850i NIGHT SKY, BMW Individual Manufaktur shows what can be achieved when you strive for maximum uniqueness. Materials, components and working processes were all questioned and upgraded to meet the challenge of creating this level of uniqueness. Haute couture in combination with prêt-à-porter characterise this one-of-a-kind vehicle from BMW Individual. It is no coincidence that it is to be presented on 3 January 2019. That night, a meteor shower – called the Quadrantids – expected to be visible to the naked eye across the night sky.

INFINITE POSSIBILITIES.

Aesthetic elements such as front spoilers, air breathers, mirror caps and brake discs take on the characteristic, orthogonal form of the so-called Widmanstätten pattern of the meteorite. BMW Individual's possibilities are further demonstrated by the first ever installation of brake callipers with bionic design, i.e. a geometry based on organic constructions found in nature. The callipers are 30 per cent lighter than conventional components and were manufactured using a metallic 3D printing process. This unique masterpiece piece is carried along by 20" BMW Individual light alloy wheels in 730i V-spoke design.

PART OF THE UNIVERSE.

When you look at the interior, the first thing you’ll notice are the words NIGHT SKY written in all-caps on the door sill. The backlit lettering is flanked by two mosaics from the Muonionalusta meteorite, which complement the door sill. Look further inside and a second highlight immediately stands out: leather trim in tri-colour design. Opal White with Midnight Blue and accents in Silver emphasise the theme and embody the uniqueness of the Night Sky with the highest quality BMW Individual Merino leather.

The colour scheme runs across each one of the vehicle’s seats, complementing its appearance. In order to make the Widmanstätten pattern a tactile experience for the passengers, the quilting in the middle section of the seats underlines the comfort as it nestles against passengers’ backs during their journey. The centre console forms the nucleus of the vehicle‘s design: the fascia panels, the start/stop button, the iDrive lever and the gear selector lever all have a refined mosaic design from the meteorite. As a result, more than 600g of this rare material can be found in the interior.

The BMW Individual M850i NIGHT SKY questioned the status quo, defined new limits of what was feasible and consistently interpreted the design language of the meteorite in all areas of the vehicle.
