We recommend 

In light of the 2022 BMW M850i being offered in only one trim, we believe this single trim is very purposefully designed to accommodate any kind of performance and convenience needs. If, however, you are seeking performance with no limits, then you should not hesitate to explore the BMW M8 Competition. 

Release date

The BMW M850i has already been shown off, and you can order one for an MSRP of $108,895, inclusive of destination charges, from your local BMW dealer.
