At a first glance we thought this was one of those expensive paintjobs from BMW's Individual customization program but upon closer inspection we noticed that this is most likely a wrap. If you look at the front parking sensors you will notice they didn't cut the wrap around them but nevertheless the Lime Green finish makes the i8 stand out even more.

It's very difficult to get a BMW i8 these days as there's an 18-month waiting list in some markets but even so someone who just couldn't wait agreed to pay an extra $100,000 to get the car right away. He ended up paying $247,750 to BMW Irivine dealership in Orange County, California. BMW is now considering boosting production in order to meet the unexpected very high demand.
