No its not a specific for Valentine’s Day edition plug-in.  BMW has prepared a new special edition of the i8 – Protonic Red Edition, which will officially be unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

BMW says that there will be more special edition i8s in the future.

Protonic Red Edition i8 will enter production this summer.

BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition will be built in Leipzig from July.
The first in this line of special-edition models is the BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition. Like those set to follow in its tyre tracks, it is only available for a limited period. This take on the 2+2-seater with carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) passenger cell and efficient BMW eDrive drive system technology will be produced at BMW Plant Leipzig from July; it sports a Protonic Red paint finish with accents in Frozen Grey metallic. The colour scheme is complemented by BMW W-spoke 470 light-alloy wheels painted in Orbit Grey metallic with hubs painted in Aluminium matt and mixed-size tyres (front: 215/45 R20, rear: 245/40 R20). Inside the inaugural special-edition i8, red double-stitching and applications in high-grade carbon fibre and ceramic provide indications of its exceptional sporting character.”

Oh! A new colour after what, 2-3 years? What ’bout technical improvements? Ridiculous…

We need more battery kWh please. Why cant you update the motor and use the same 170HP motor as used in the i3? Its a joke that the i3’s electric motor has better horse power than the BMW i8 ! Are you listening BMWi ?

It is basically the same motor in an i3, but horsepower limited, probably due to battery size.
