BMW is taking a one-off edition of the new and innovative i8 to the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and putting it up for auction. The vehicle, unveiled in an Aug. 8 press release, has appropriately been named the BMW i8 Concours d’Elegance Edition.
Finished in BMW Individual Frozen Gray Metallic, the exterior immediately gives away that this car is special. Inside, the cabin is laid with Dalbergia Brown leather upholstery, which was tanned using dye derived from plant extracts. Complementing the leather is BLW iBlue stitching. Other accents in this i8 feature the exciting BLW iBlue color, including the seat belts, thanks to the Pure Impulse Tera World interior package.
