BMW will paint your i8 in one of these funky colours for £5,495

Worried your BMW i8 hybrid supercar might go unnoticed in traffic? The firm is now offering its Individual paint programme for the i8 – with prices starting at £5,495.

The new colours, which BMW says ‘reflects the personal style of the customer’, include Java Green, Speed Yellow, Solar Orange, Twilight Purple Pearl, Frozen Grey, Frozen Black, San Marino Blue and Grigio Telesto Pearl.

Finishes range from non-metallic to Xirallic, which uses a mixture of synthetic mica or aluminium flakes.

BMW UK sales director, Richard Hudson, 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.”

The manufacturer says the launch of the BMW Individual collection for the i8 follows the success of the early orders for the Protonic Red limited edition, revealed at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
