BMW i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition is so cool it's Frozen

Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, BMW, Luxury



The new, one-of-a-kind BMW i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition made a ritzy debut last night at BMW's private villa, giving the media its first chance to look at the ultra-exclusive hybrid.

As we said in our previous post, the most notable feature of the Concours d'Elegance i8 is its matte grey paint, known as Frozen Grey Metallic in BMW parlance. This isn't the first time we've seen this shade on an exclusive BMW, as it was last used for the Frozen Grey M3 from 2010.

Contrasting quite nicely with the i8's flat paint are its blue and white accents, and its Dalbergia Brown leather upholstery. Blue contrast stitching complements the interior aesthetic, as do the embossed BMW roundels in the headrests.

Provided Uncle Sam signs off on it, the i8 Concours d'Elegance will also be the first vehicle in the US to feature laser headlights. It will also include a complimentary set of Louis Vuitton baggage and a "professional edition" charging station.

The exclusive model will cross the auction block at Gooding & Company's auction on Saturday evening, where it will likely command a hefty sum, with proceeds going to the Pebble Beach Company Foundation and the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Take a look up top for our live gallery of images from the i8's debut last night, and then scroll down for the press release and original gallery from the car's announcement last week.Continue reading BMW i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition is so cool it's Frozen
