Earlier this month, BMW introduced two exclusive editions to its electrified lineup – The i3s Edition RoadStyle and the BMW i8 Ultimate Sophisto Edition. The BMW i8 Ultimate Sophisto Edition is meant to be a send off of the stylish hybrid sportscar which is rumored to exit production in 2020.

The limited BMW i8 Ultimate Sophisto Edition will be available in Coupe and Roadster models, both featuring a very elegant combination of E-Copper trim with special details and interior touches.

A coupe version of this special BMW i8 landed in Frankfurt this week for the auto show,

The BMW i8 Ultimate Sophisto Edition will be available in a very limited 200 units globally, first-come, first-serve.

According to BMW, both the i8 Coupe and Convertible feature Sophisto Grey metallic paint with E-Copper accents applied to the 20-inch radial-spoke BMW i light alloy wheels, kidney grille inserts and side skirt accent. The tailgate inlay is finished in High-gloss Black while C-pillar trim elements in Shadowline. The brake calipers are also painted High-gloss Black and feature blue detailing and BMW i badging.

Furthermore, the door sill plates display the words “Ultimate Sophisto Edition” and an interior badge adds the car’s status as being “1 of 200”. E-Copper detailing carries into the i8’s interior.

Why is the BMW i8 dropping in value on pre-owned market?

It’s unclear how many of those units will come to the US, but it’s likely to be a fair amount considering the market size.

  • Sophisto Grey exterior paint with E-Copper accents
