The new BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition

The BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition taking to stage at the Geneva Motor Show is a new and exclusive limited-edition version of the plug-in hybrid sports car that offers customers a new option when it comes to tailoring the trailblazing sports coupe even more closely to their individual tastes. At the same time, the Protonic Red Edition is the first in a series of forthcoming special-edition variants, which will allow customers to enjoy a selection of bespoke equipment highlights in the 2+2-seater BMW i8 sports car.

Due to go into production this July, the inaugural special-edition BMW i8 sports an exclusive Protonic Red paint finish wîth contrast accents in Frozen Grey metallic. This is complemented by BMW W-spoke 470 light-alloy wheels painted in Orbit Grey metallic wîth hubs painted in Aluminium matt and mixed- size tyres (front: 215/45 R20, rear: 245/40 R20). The 'i8' embossing on the front head restraints and the door sill strips bearing the lettering 'Protonic Red Edition' lend a special touch to the interior's natural aesthetic appeal. The seats feature double lap seams in red, and the red stitching is in evidence again in the door and side trim panels, echoing the exterior paintwork to perfection. Exclusively designed embellishers made from high- grade carbon fibre for the centre console and instrument panel reinforce the cool, sporty look of the BMW i8 interior, as do the carbon-fibre pull handles on the insides of the doors. The gear selector wîth black ceramic detailing, the grey-coloured seat belts and the specially designed floor mats wîth leather piping and red contrast stitching put the finishing touches to the cabin's highly individual styling.

The BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition will be produced at the Leipzig plant starting in July 2016, and will be available to order for a limited period only up to the end of 2016.
