The BMW i8
is taking the world’s automotive media by storm, impressing with its style, performance, and efficiency. But soon, there’ll be an even more impressive example on the road: the one-of-a-kind BMW i8 Concours d’Elegance Edition.ALSO SEE: New Toyota Supra Powertrain Details Emerge
Scheduled to go up for auction at the Gooding & Company event ahead of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance
this August 16th, the factory customized BMW i8 will get a unique treatment inside and out.
BMW Individual Frozen Grey Metallic paint will cover the exterior, while the interior will get a Dalbergia Brown leather treatment. BMW i Blue contrast stitching and seat belts, and a BMW i8 logo embossed in the headrests further the customization.
Also included with this example are a number of firsts for the U.S.: the first BMW Charging Station, professional edition; the first BMW i8 Display key; and the first laser headlights—pending federal approval. The car’s special edition status will be cemented by a “Concours d’Elegance Edition” laser etching in the cabin.
