Looking to experience electrically-powered driving pleasure laced with added exclusivity? Only one customer in Singapore will now have the opportunity with the introduction of the BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Yellow Edition.

The exclusive limited run special edition is the third of its kind for the BMW i8, following the introduction of the Protonic Red Edition in 2016, and then Protonic Frozen Black Edition unveiled at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show 2017.

The BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Yellow Edition features a BMW Individual Protonic Frozen yellow exterior paint finish with Frozen Grey metallic highlights and 20-inch 'W-Spoke' style BMW i light alloy wheels.

The exclusive interior package unique to the BMW i8 Frozen Edition range includes: Dark NESO seats with woven yellow and anthracite stitching as well as the headrest embossed BMW i8 logo, contrasted with grey safety belts, floor mats with black leather piping and yellow highlights, door sills with the integrated aluminum plate and Edition lettering, the gear shift lever trim and central control unit in black ceramic.

All BMW i8 limited edition models feature the internationally awarded BMW i8 three-cylinder combustion engine with an output of 231 hp that propels the rear wheels and a 96 kW electric motor which draws its energy from a lithium-ion battery that can be charged from a conventional domestic power socket and send its power to the front axle. This bespoke plug-in hybrid system, developed and produced by the BMW Group, enables a range of up to 37 km and a top speed of 120 km/h on electric power alone.

The BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Yellow Edition and the BMW i8 Frozen Black Edition are now available for viewing at Performance Motors’ showroom. Both are priced at $603,800 with COE.
