BMW i LAUNCHES LIMITED EDITION i3 INSPIRED BY MR PORTER
BMW i has partnered wîth MR PORTER.COM, the award-winning online destination for men's style, to design and produce a one-of-a-kind, limited edition BMW i3.
Inspired by timeless style and enriched wîth contemporary features, the design teams from both BMW i and MR PORTER have combined their expertise to create a sleek and sophisticated car wîth a very unique aesthetic.
Reminiscent of the classic tuxedo, one of the most stylish garments in menswear, the limited edition BMW i3 comes wîth an elegant exterior in tuxedo blue specially developed for this version. Distinctive features on each of the numbered editions have been handcrafted to ensure a completely unique finish, much like in made-to-measure tailoring: the individual painting, and the white accent running the length of the chassis – which can be associated wîth the pinstripe suit – are hand painted by master craftsmen.
Stefan Ponikva, Head of BMW i Brand Management said: 'The BMW i3 represents the effortless merging of sustainability and cutting-edge style. Our dedication to technological innovation, superior quality and first class design concepts that go beyond the ordinary, meant this collaboration wîth MR PORTER captured our imagination instantly.'
'At MR PORTER we give our customers the global best in men's style across many categories, so this collaboration wîth BMW, the best in class in the automotive , felt like a bold but natural step. We relish the opportunity to be first to market for projects such as this,' said Mr Toby Bateman, Managing Director, MR PORTER.
Running on electric power and therefore emission-free, the MR PORTER-inspired BMW i3 offers the same award-winning driving experience – sporting driving characteristics and excellent agility, while being near-silent in motion.
The BMW i3 generates an output of 170hp, wîth peak torque of 250Nm on demand instantly. This allows the BMW i3 to sprint from zero to 37mph in a mere 3.7 seconds and zero to 62mph in just 7.2 seconds, while the lithium-ion battery gives a range of 80 –100 miles in everyday driving. This rises by approximately 15 per cent in ECO PRO mode and by the same again in ECO PRO+ mode.
The car comes complete wîth a MR PORTER Essentials Travel Kit that consists of a BMW i leather holdall and four items exclusive to MR PORTER: a black and white London undercover umbrella, a special edition Leica camera, Cutler & Gross sunglasses, Lock & Co bowler hat and a bespoke edition of Phaidon City Guide Book.
To celebrate MR PORTER's fifth anniversary a limited number of BMW i3 cars will be available to purchase in the ÚK. It will be priced at £43,500 OTR and orders can be placed from 18th February 2016 from the website below.Source - BMW
