COMMENTS

Also making its auto show debut is the BMW i8 Ultimate Sophisto Edition (Official Thread).

The BMW i8 Ultimate Sophisto Edition marks the end of production of the BMW i8. 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.

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.

Also at Frankfurt:
4 Series Coupe Concept
BMW M Vision Next
BMW i Hydrogen NEXT
Alpina B3 Touring
BMW X6 (G06)
X6 Vantablack and X5 VR6 Protection
M8 Competition in Frozen Marina Bay Blue

If only they put the same motor as the m8 in it, people would be buying i8s left and right

Is that not the same color as all Sophisto Grey's except they have painted some of the black areas i.e. hood and back in the Grey Paint color?

I'm sorry but the Orange accents are too gaudy. Maybe if you live in south beach.

Nice,
But would choose my frozen grey again, more understatement.

Actually spending some days on the Lago Maggiore with mine and thinking about to take the Simplon pass road back home tomorrow. Just curios to see how much energy I can gain back the other side down.
Fuel consumption is 50mpg (US) at the moment without stationary charging and including the Gotthard highway at start, not so bad I guess.

Ultimate Wrong Engine Machine...

What a waste of design this was... Put an I6 in it and you might still sell it. Might....
