BMW’s first special i3 makes its world debut today at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. The fully electric car is designed for the U.S. market with only 50 units available and went on sale this week and sold out in one hour. The new BMW i3 Shadow Sport Edition features the recently announced Fluid Black paint color and comes with a new interior package – Deka World dark grey with blue highlights. The Fluid Black creates a sleek and attractive look, which is seamlessly continued in the exclusive dark cloth interior.

The addition of the sport-tuned suspension is also exclusive to this Limited Edition and allows for increased sportier handling and dampening settings.


The Shadow Sport Limited Edition includes 19” Light Alloy turbine wheels 428 w/all-season tires available. Also a first for the i3 U.S. models is the addition of a moonroof – a feature only available until now to European customers.


Each of the 50 units will carry a special limited-edition badge to highlight its unicorn status. The MSRP was set at $47,400.
