Thailand’s most famous tuner, Prodrive, has done what all the rappers and gangsters interested in new technologies and the environment were waiting for: a black on black BMW i8! They have enlisted the services of American supplier ADV1 Wheels for this program, who provided them with a set of their classic ADV05 M.V2 SL rims.
This car must be the first black on black BMW i8 in the world, but even if it isn’t, we are fairly certain it is currently the best looking i8 in the world. The attention to detail here is amazing. Apart from the exterior color and the wheels, finished in matte black, the tuner has also smoked the lights and tinted the windows.
They have been quite clever with the signature ‘i’ detailing though, applying a nice dark tint to the them rather than painting them black. They look really classy now and match the overall theme of the car beautifully.
