Thinking about getting a BMW i3? Do you like to own low-volume special edition cars? When it comes to cars, a special edition where only 50 copies are made guarantees the owner will be in pretty exclusive company.

That’s exactly what BMW is doing with a special version of the 2016 BMW i3. BMW is calling it the “i3 Shadow Sport” and they are using social media for the public unveiling. Tomorrow (Monday, 11/16) at 8PM EST, you can tune into the live BMWUSA Periscope event to find out the details on the i3 Shadow Sport.

From the teaser picture it looks like the car has a moonroof, which has yet to be available in the US, and is the new color, Fluid Black. It has the 19″ Cyclone wheels which only come with the top-of-the-line Terra World package, so it’s likely loaded with all the options the car offers.

So far, all BMW has said was “With only 50 available to purchase, the all-electric 2016 BMW i3 Shadow Sport is every bit a BMW i3 with new features – available for the first time in the US.” 

Nothing else is known about this special edition i3, so if you’re interested in the i3, and like owning rare cars, made sure you tune into tomorrow’s live Periscope event.

  1. Me says:

    In the words of James May, “Cock!”

    Let’s see here.. what features are we missing that other markets have had for 2 years:

    1. Moon/sunroof
    2. Hold SOC
    3. 0.5 gal (electronically limited)
    4. Traffic Jam Assist (automatic steering)
    5. The base trim level, black cloth with blue trim (sportiest interior if you ask me)
    6. Japanese market specific “M Sport Suspension”

    Am I missing anything else??? It would be great if there were performance enhancements.. but it may just be nothing more than the UK Sport Package, which was all aesthetic. Perhaps it’s 50 Euro spec cars.. that would certainly be “special” in the US.
