Protons are located in the nucleus of almost every atom, so they like to be the center of attention. To be formally released at the Geneva Auto Show, the Protonic Frozen Black Edition will arrive in matte black with glossy accents. BMW has offered frozen finishes through the Individual program for several years producing the best matte finish in the industry. The graceful curves of the i8 are made possible by a body of carbon fiber. It will be visible for miles when covered in Protonic Frozen Yellow.

If you have not experienced the i8, its nothing short of amazing. With an electric range of 15 miles, you will have 76 MPGe at your disposal. Efficiency doesn’t diminish the BMWs performance, as 420 lb-ft of torque and 357 hp make for incredible acceleration. It comes with a home charger that is capable of 240v or 120v operation. The gas engine is a 1.5 liter inline three cylinder with a single turbo. A futuristic cockpit is very low, but being close to the center of gravity and the yaw axis makes cornering very fun. Take a look at these new color options and let us know what you think in the comments below.
