From Netherlands comes a BMW i8 featuring an interesting and lively livery. The hybrids sportscar is likely a marketing car – considering the amount of brands listed on the livery – and features a multi-tone vinyl wrap which makes it stand out even more. The orange theme is combined with black, white and silver accents giving the car an even more exquisite look.
When BMW launched the i8 in 2014, customers had the option to choose between four exterior colors: Ionic Silver, Protonic Blue, Crystal White and Sophisto Grey. Two years later, the color palette remains the same and has opened the door for aftermarket customizations starting with the most simple and inexpensive one: vinyl wraps.
Moving into 2016 and further, BMW will begin to offer new limited colors, like the recently unveiled BMW i8 Protonic Red.
Those flashy paint jobs or tape wraps are likely to draw even more attention to the beautiful design of BMW’s first hybrid sportscar, which is still a rare sight on the roads.
The technology underpinning the i8 is just as impressive. 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).
