The German automaker’s British unit has revealed the availability of a new tailoring program for the green i8 plug in hybrid flagship sports car – the Individual Exterior Paint Program.
Thanks to the BMW Individual unit, customers in the United Kingdom wanting their i8 to stand out from the crowd can now order a wide range of color options – and the optional package also adds the black W-Spoke alloy wheels for good measure. The BMW i8 clients have a plethora of choices, including non-metallic, Xirallic, metallic or matte and “frozen” paints and finishes. The “Xirallic” paint is a new mixture of synthetic mica or aluminum flakes that produces “scintillating effects,” which is why it’s called like this. Among the highlights of the new Individual Exterior Paint Program we could mention the Speed Yellow, Solar Orange, Java Green, Frozen Grey, San Marino Blue, Twilight Purple Pearl, Grigio Telesto Pearl, and Frozen Black.
The new option is also exclusive to the British market. BMW also recently introduced the i8 Protonic Red edition – which proved highly successful. And this might be the reason why the German company decided to expand the color choice options – though we’re not really sure why the program is just for customers in the United Kingdom.
