My i8 delivered today 2 !

I received my i8 two hours ago. Great. As I should be the first in Switzerland, I almost caused accidents when coming back home with it ! It's funny how people speak with you and ask questions about the car. It is now charging with my Wall Box and should be ready soon to get better acquantied.

Awesome, congrats 2

Very exciting to start seeing deliveries and looking forward to owner experiences over the coming months.

You and your buddy should do a photoshoot of the 2 i8s together - would be fantastic!



Enjoy in good health!

The interior of the car my friend is white. I will take a picture tomorrow when he receives his car. My interior is Carpo Amido Black, as shown in the photos below.

I love the combination, the White, blue accents and turbine wheels.

I just noticed, for your friend's car, the hood is completely white?

Congrats! Car looks awesome.

Can you post a picture of a close up of the stitching of the leather? Is it blue to match the seatbelts? Any chance you could take a picture of the seatbelt with the stitching as well to see how well they match?

Thanks!

Wow, what a presence this car has, any other car next to it, looks boring and old in comparison.
