Some colourful BMW i8 – Finally!
Ever since the BMW i8 was revealed, back in 2014, the car managed to be a huge success. I’m not necessarily speaking about sales here, but the BMW i8 is without a doubt one of those modern cars that changed the car game in the last few years. The BMW i8 has increased BMW aura as a « cooler brand », definitely more modern, with a big step in technology. Even I notice it on social media: the BMW i8 is the kind of car people LOVE. But it lacked something quite important.
Indeed, ever since it was released, there were only 5 available colours for the car: white, grey, silver, black, blue). Those were very discreet and sober colours to chose from. To be honest, I never quite understood that strategy (kind of like with Porsche only having 4 or 5 « factory colours » for their 991 GT3 RS): the more the better, if you ask me (though probably the most annoying to handle as well, granted).
BUT THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER
No need to rely on a wrap if you want to have a truly unique BMW i8. Well, that’s if you live in the UK. Indeed, through their BMW Individual program, there are 5 new colours: Java Green, Speed Yellow, Solar Orange, Twilight Purple Pearl, Frozen Grey, Frozen Black, San Marino Blue & Grigio Telesto Pearl. Now that’s more like it: finally some colourful BMW i8 « stock ». That’s more my taste: more diversity & flashy colours!
