Any idea where the photos were taken? I assume it was Germany, but it's interesting that it's a right-hand drive car.

First shots I've seen of someone (looks to be a child) in the rear seat.

Curious why they still have the stickers "Hybrid test vehicle" on the car.

Just noticed how many people in the background of the first photo are ogling the i8. Obvious that the car is a real head-turner.

Wow thanks for the updates ... When first posted this thread just had the silver.

Man, this car just looks sick in every color.

Something draws me to the Protonic Blue, though... (Not seen in this thread at time of this post)

I took part in a Product Training for X5 F15 and 4 Series Coupe and in the evening event, we could admire the i8 - phones or cameras weren't allowed so no pics!

We were also shown the 2 Series Coupe and 4 Series Cabrio.

2 Series was sapphire black with coral red interior - it was a 220d

4 Series Cabrio was Melbourne Red with Sport Line - Black leather and red accents/stitching

i8 was Ionic Silver - but we couldn't see the interior - and it was a production car for USA.

The event took place in Vienna, Austria.

All the pics look to be taken, here in Germany. The first bunch were(probably) taken a few blocks behind Marienplatz and/or Odeonsplatz in downtown Munich.

The gas station pics were taken at the Döttinger Höhe gas station ( http://www.doettinger-hoehe.de/Dottinger_Hohe/Home.html ) across from the 'Ring. You can see the Audi banner on the BTG(Bridge to Gantry) on the straight just before the tourist entry/exit point for the 'Ring.

The shots of the white i8 looks like the streets around the FIZ(BMW's R&D center) a few blocks up from the BMW Welt.

FYI... just because a car is RHD doesn't mean its being driven in the UK(or other RHD markets).


The reason why the i8 has the words: "Hybrid test vehicle" on the doors is bc it is a German law in case the cars were to become involved in a accident for the fire dept/first responders would know it is not a normal car. Also on the back of every German prototype it is written: "Werkstestwagen" so the public knows the car is not forsale. Sometimes the car manufactures use the word: "erprobungsfahrzeug" but you do not see that often.
