Limited edition BMW i8 quite electrifying
BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The new model will go into production in July, with first deliveries expected in September.
The new special edition BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition puts a new angle on the immediately recognisable BMW i model. The paintwork, created exclusively for this sports car, comes in a Protonic Red finish with Frozen Grey metallic accents.
The colour scheme is complemented by BMW W- spoke 470 light- alloy wheels painted in Orbit Grey metallic with hubs painted in Aluminium matt and mixed- size tyres ( front: 215 R20, rear: 245/ 40).
On the interior, the special edition i8 comes with high- class red double- stitching and exclu- sive carbon fibre and ceramic trims.
The exterior and interior design of the i8 are heavily influenced by its LifeDrive architecture and pioneering BMW eDrive system, however its reinterpretation of established design features ensures it’s still recognisable as a BMW.
The structure of overlapping and interlocking surfaces also contributes to the unmistakable appearance of the BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition.
This layering principle allows aerodynamic forms to be wrapped up in a progressively styled package, while powerfully formed wheel arches draw attention to the wide track of the BMW i8. The dihedral doors open upwards, adding intrigue to the sports car design.
The limited- edition BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition has been revealed, featuring unique interior and exterior details.
