A few BMW i8s were present at the Geneva Motor Show, including two special editions. The first is the manufacturer’s proposition, the i8 Protonic Frozen Black Edition, while the second is a red i8 AC Schnitzer Edition.

BMW i8 Frozen Yellow Edition is in the works, too.

Both of the special i8s on display in Geneva were the good ol’ i8 without any changes to the battery or electric motor performance.

The aging i8 is due for a refresh in Spring 2018. Additionally, a drop-top version has been spotted recently.

Let’s check out how they look on the stage, starting with the AC Schnitzer, a German tuning company that created one of the sweetest looking i8 we’ve ever seen (see details here).

    No augmentation to drivetrain or power output? I guess this qualifies as RICE. I was really hoping that we’d see an updated leaf.

    The Schnitzer is gross. All those added
    black ducts and air vents seem unnecessary and over the top. Like what a rapper would do to his i8 to customize it, just before he gold-plated the new 32″ rims he’d put on it.

    Look, the car already is sexy and sleek. Why do people think body add-ons that cheapen it, actually improve it?

    I do like the BMW Frozen Black Edition. For my taste, the i8 has too many odd black trim touches that accentuate it’s air ductwork a bit too much. I know they have a vital role in aerodynamics and cooling – but for me, the black ties it into the shape as a whole – a nice look.

    Longer EV range and a bit more power to boot would be nice in the next true upgrade.
