2017 Chicago Auto Show: Live Photos – BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition Kicks Off

Read Time:1 Minute, 38 Second

Even if the German based carmaker announced the official debut of the BMW i8 Protonic Frozen Black Edition and Protonic Frozen Yellow at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, next month, until then, we will have to settle for the BMW i8 Protonic Red, just presented at the ongoing Chicago Auto Show.

Seen in a couple of live photos below, the all-new BMW i8 Protonic Red is looking magnificent with the new body wrap, which highlights the car`s every single design line, making it altogether more aggressive and appealing.

As already mentioned in a previous article, this particular model will be available in a limited-run of just 100 units, and will soon be joined by the other aforementioned models. And usually, such special editions come with special and bespoke features at the exterior as well as inside.

These bespoke features refer mainly to the W-spoke 470 light-alloy wheels finished in Orbit Grey Metallic with Aluminum Matte hubs, the entire set perfectly complementing the hybrid`s exclusive colour. But most of the changes are found inside.

The cabin of the BMW i8 Protonic Red features the “i8” badging on the front head restraints while the door sill strips are also embroidered with the “Protonic Red Edition” lettering. The seats are also highlighted by the double lap seams in red stitching.

Also, the center console and instrument panel are made from high-grade carbon fiber, the same composite being also highlighted on the pull handles inside the doors. The gear selector has been tweaked with black ceramic trim, while the seat belts are now grey-colored and perfectly blend in with the special floor mats with leather piping and red contrast stitching.
