BMW UK is extending its program of exterior paint finishes for the BMW i8 model with an extensive array of new colours. As part of the BMW Individual collection, customers will be able to choose from a multitude of extraordinary paint finishes which not only complements the BMW i8s styling but also reflects the personal style of the customer.

The new colours include: Java Green, Speed Yellow, Solar Orange, Twilight Purple Pearl, Frozen Grey, Frozen Black, San Marino Blue and Grigio Telesto Pearl to name just a few.

BMW i8 Individual Colors - Programme in UK

A variety of finishes are available including non-metallic, metallic or Xirallic, which uses a mixture of synthetic mica or aluminium flakes to produce scintillating effects.

Even more striking is the matt finish of the frozen paintwork which has a unique shimmer, making the contours of the BMW i8 even more striking and underlining the sculptural character of the vehicle. The addition of the new BMW Individual paint programme for the BMW i8 follows the success of the early orders for the BMW i8 Protonic Red limited edition and is bespoke to the UK.

Commenting on the i8 BMW Individual Exterior Paint Programme, Richard Hudson, Sales Director for BMW UK, said: “The BMW i8 embodies the accomplished vision of a modern and sustainable sports car. The new paintwork colours not only complement the BMW i8s emotive styling and design, they also work harmoniously with the BMW i brand and provide customers with exclusive personalised options.

With over 1,400 BMW i8s sold in the UK since the launch in 2014, the BMW i8 has gone from strength to strength, picking up many accolades along the way including Top Gear Car of the year in 2014, 2015 UK Car of the Year and World Green Car Award to name a few.
