Following last month's preview, BMW has released additional images of the one-off i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition.
The special i8 wears a Frozen Grey Metallic exterior paint scheme and comes on the inside with a Dalbergia Brown leather upholstery which has been tanned by using dye derived from plant extracts and is complemented by BMW i blue stitching.
Also inside, "i8" has been embossed into the front headrests while "Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Edition" lettering has been laser etched into the door sills. There's also a plaque on the rear parcel shelf featuring signatures of all BMW executives that played a role during the i8's development.
This unique i8 also marks several U.S. debuts such as the laser headlights (pending government approval), a BMW i8 Display key and the BMW Charging Station professional edition. The buyer will also receive a set of Louis Vuitton luggage designed specifically for the i8.
The BMW i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition will be sold by the Gooding & Company and is programmed to hit the auction block next Saturday at the Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Auction. All the money obtained will go to the Pebble Beach Company Foundation and the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
