Contrary to early speculations, it turns out that the futuristic looks of the BMW i8 respond well to getting wrapped in unusual colors. A while back we showed you a very interesting green i8. Now check out this more discreet but equally good-looking matte white BMW i8 wrapped by Metro Wrapz.
Wrapped in time to celebrate the Fourth of July with a special photoshoot with an artistic American flag as the backdrop, Metro Wrapz’s matte white BMW i8 is actually more sophisticated than it first seems. The wrap consists of matte white and white carbon fiber elements.
They have left the signature blue accents of the i8 intact, using the contrast they make with the white body to the advantage of a sporty look. The treatment does suit BMW i8 rather well. It is also one of the few colors we’ve seen that makes those unique wheels look less weird.
Powered by a three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that is boosted by a couple of electric motors, BMW i8 is the world’s first proper hybrid sports car. The ultimate driving machine of the future delivers 360 horsepower and around 90 mpg. Well, theoretically 90 mpg. In the real world you’d be lucky to get 40.
