Vagabund Unleashes A Bespoke BMW i850 Ready For High-Octane Adventure

With a serious propensity for delivering ultra-clean, neo-retro builds with an unmistakable factory finish, Austria’s Vagabund Moto has long been one of our favorite custom motorcycle shops, though over the last year the Graz-based outfit has been branching out into bespoke automotive projects. And after previously completing an adventure-ready Lada Niva 4×4 project, Vagabund — in conjunction with Reiterer Autohaus — has now pulled the cover off of its latest one-off car project with a 2019 BMW 850i simply known as “The 8.”

Wanting to build the project around the biggest sports coupe on the market, the team first selected an M8, but difficulties stemming from mounting equipment onto the M car’s carbon-fiber roof ultimately lead the shop to opt for an 850i donor. Adorned from head-to-toe in a custom wrap in Vagabund’s signature black, light gray, and below-accented color scheme, The 8 has been outfitted with HRE 305M wheels wrapped in 35” Toyo all-terrain tires, PIAA headlights set in bespoke 3D-printed housing, and a custom roof-rack with a built-in cargo box containing a battery that powers the build’s supplementary lighting. The stock headlights have been modified and now sport yellow-lensed DRLs. The 850i’s 523hp twin-turbocharged 4.4L V-8 now ejects spent gasses from an entirely custom-made exhaust system fabricated by fellow Austrian outfit, Remus.
