A BMW i8 with a special livery was spotted in Koln, Germany. Featured a two-tone paint job (or is it a vinyl wrap), the black and yellow i8 stands out even more  on the road.

Judging by the inscription on the car, the i8 seems to belong to Ellip6, a company that produces racing simulators.

From the factory, BMW i8 can be specified in a choice of four colors, three of which have been created exclusively for BMW i.

All the paint finishes provide a striking contrast to the black belt: Ionic SilverProtonic BlueCrystal White and Sophisto Grey. The BMW i blue accents accompany all the colors.

BMW i8 uses a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a turbocharged three-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine and BMW eDrive technology in the form of an electric drive system. The 1.5-liter combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8, while the 96 kW/131 hp electric drive sends its power to the front wheels and allows an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).

In Germany, the BMW i8 starts at €126,000, while in the UK it costs £ 99,125. The U.S. market received the i8 this summer with a base price of $135,700.
