BMW shows how to make a contemporary car truly rare with the i8 Celebration Edition
This BMW i8 is so special that we will never see it. Unless we are among those 20, who will buy it… from Japan, because the limited anniversary model is intended only for this country. The idea behind the i8 Celebration Edition is to celebrate in the most exclusive way the 100th anniversary of the Bavarian company. Carrying exclusive paint scheme, one-off interior and produced in strictly limited numbers, this machine does not need any additional individualization. Here is why.
Starting-off with the exterior, it surely makes an impression, that we have seen somewhere else this paint scheme. And we are 100% correct. The shade used for this i8 is called Protonic Red, while the accents are in Frozen Gray Metallic. The same combination was revealed back in February and debuted in Geneva a month later. See the link below if you don't believe.
Other charming characteristics, which this time differentiate the car from the above mentioned are the 20-inch W-spoke light-alloys in a striking bi-color combination: Aluminum matte and Orbit Grey metallic. And this is all you need to know about the exterior. After all, a BMW must stay classy.
Inside, the cabin features the same contrast design philosophy and includes red contrasting stitching on the seats, floor mats (which by the way come with leather piping), carbon fiber accents and ceramic details on the gearshift lever.
Just in case you wonder (because the chances of buying it are very low), the i8 Celebration Edition is priced at ¥22,000,000 or around $197,945 USD.
