I was truly amazed when I first saw this BMW i8 being customized by Gioavanna and Avery Denison, to create an astonishing and gorgeous plug-in hybrid version from BMW. We are talking about the BMW i8 Giovanna Edition Matte Metallic Grigio project.
The BMW i8 Giovanna Edition Matte Metallic Grigio project was carried out by Giovanna tuning division in a partnership with Avery Denison, another famous tuner, the two aftermarket shops managing to customize this BMW i8 with a special wrap, which features a grey color finish, in a mixture with the Giovanna Edition Satin Pearls Cielo Blu accents. And the rest is what you get to see from the photos.
Apart from this exterior wrapping, there are no upgrades carried out under the hood, or at the body, the model not receiving the special wheels from Giovanna, which is mainly specialized in the wheeling industry. This means that the BMW i8 still keeps the hybrid synchronous motor under the hood, developing 131 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque.
The synchronous motor is also backed by an I3 1.5-liter turbo unit, developing an additional 228 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque, outputting a total of 357 horsepower and 570 Nm of torque.
Apart from the great and extraordinary performance, the BMW i8 has also received some upgrades, to cope with the high demands at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, taking place last month. The new upgrades include gloss brake calipers, leather engine cover, as well as the “Pure Impulse Experience Program,” which puts together the “exclusive lifestyle options in the areas of culture, design, travel and gastronomy in keeping with the progressive and sustainable “next premium” approach of the BMW i brand,” to quote some officials from BMW.
