Handover of 18 of the first BMW i8 Roadsters at BMW Welt [press release]

Munich. A plaque in the interior confirms that these 18 BMW i8 Roadsters (combined fuel consumption: 2.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 46 g/km) came off the assembly line at BMW Group Plant Leipzig one after the other and are among the first to be handed over to customers.

BMW i8 Club received the keys for the exclusive first edition of the breath-taking plug-in hybrid roadsters from Peter van Binsbergen, head of Sales and Marketing BMW Germany.

Their first outing was to drive in convoy to Lake Como in Italy for the Concorso d’Eleganza, where they will be displayed on the grounds of the Villa Erba this weekend.

The exclusive BMW i8 Roadster First Edition, which was only available to order for a very brief period, is limited to 200 models worldwide. An exclusive interior plaque on the driver’s side of the centre console identifies the First Edition as a genuine collector’s item, inscribed with the words “First Edition” and the limited edition numbering “1 of 200”. The 18 cars received by the BMW i8 Club are among the first of these 200 models and, as a special surprise for the members, are inscribed with “1 of 18”.

Special interior options, such as ceramic applications for operating controls, dry-carbon interior trim, Harman Kardon hi-fi speaker system and the BMW i8 logo projected in the footwell and when doors are open, are also included in this exclusive edition.
