Abu Dhabi Motor is the city's exclusive BMW dealership and it's been turning out bespoke BMW for wealthy clientele. The BMW i8 is already a rare sight on the road, but for customers who want to be seen in something truly unique, the dealer offers nine custom paint options.

Six of those custom colors are featured on these i8. Those pictured include Austin Yellow, Lava Green, Lava Orange, Lava Red, Twilight Purple and Sunglow Yellow. The yet to be announced remaining three colors will be debuted in the future. Abu Dhabi Motors also promises a year-long exclusivity for every color color.

Arno Husselmann, General Manager of Abu Dhabi Motors, said:

"These exclusive new colors are made by the very best paint companies in Germany using the very highest quality materials. We have no doubt that these new paints will get our discerning customers’ seal of approval."

"Abu Dhabi is a knowledgeable market where taste and demands are advanced. We understand the passions and expectations of our customers – they want to make a strong statement with their car and stand out from the crowd.

We therefore place extra importance on staying ahead of trends and creating new ideas for models, materials and color options."

Looks like they added AC Schnitzer i8 kit to them.

The wheels are their best in a very long time, but that wing as usual looks out of place on an i8.

I'm liking the Austin yellow.

Do they really mean Lava green? Or Java green?

I wonder if the person who named these colors was a volcano enthusiast... just erupting with name ideas.

Edit: looked at java and lava side to side. Java seems much lighter.

From the top angle, like in the first pic, the spoiler almost works. But I agree, it ruins the lines. One of the best things about this car is the rear.
