Press Release

World premiere: the BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Yellow Edition.

The BMW Group is also building on its successful track record in sustainable mobility, where BMW i has played a significant role. The BMW eDrive drive system technology originally developed for the all-electric BMW i3 and BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car can now be experienced in six BMW model ranges and one MINI. Indeed, fuelled by the popularity of the BMW i and BMW iPerformance models, the BMW Group is now the most successful manufacturer of plug-in hybrid models for the premium segment globally.

The BMW i8, for example, has developed into the world’s highest-selling plug-in hybrid sports car. And its appeal is given fresh lustre at Auto Shanghai 2017 with the presentation for the first time of the BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Yellow Edition. This latest special edition stands out with its exclusive Protonic Frozen Yellow paint finish, newly designed 20-inch light-alloy wheels and distinctive interior design cues.

The i8 looks great in many colors.

" Protonic Frozen Yellow " looks very much like a matte Austin Yellow

I was thinking more like Phoenix Yellow but now that would just be so dated.

The white-balance in those pictures is way off. Compare them to the official photo's. I think you'll have to see it in person to tell for sure.

That looks so much like urine, that the interior smell is probably that of asparagus.

I'm starting to wonder about BMW's thinking here. What exactly is the point of releasing a single new color every year? Surely, people who wanted a yellow i8 haven't been just sitting there for the past 3 years, waiting for BMW to make one. They got one in a standard color and got it wrapped. So again, what is the point?

Shades of blue and grey are much more fitting to the i8

Looks like I'll be the only Austin yellow sale in the US. Just need to wait until they discount the heck out of it since I'm sure they'll have a line for these hot cakes
