With high-end brands like Forgiato Wheels, ‘firsts’ always matter. They are doubly important if the other side of the equation – the car receiving the goods – is something as remarkable as the BMW i8. So please welcome the world’s first BMW i8 on Forgiato Wheels!

The white i8 hybrid sports car gets a set of Forgiato Exotics 2.0 series rims with a custom finish featuring BMW i special blue on the spokes to complement the blue accents on the car’s exterior. OK, so the design may not be everyone’s cup of tea and not really on the line with what the i8 is all about. But it’s Forgiato, and unique styling has always been their signature dish.

If you like Forgiato’s style of wheel making, make sure you check out this huge gallery of their 2014 SEMA display. You will be more than pleased!
