Garage Italia Customs love BMW models and as a result, it managed to create two special models, like the BMW i8 and i3, both coming with the distinguished CrossFade package, which adds more impressive features at the exterior and inside the cabin.
At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show we have had the chance of seeing the BMW i8 CrossFade shining at the stand with an exquisite design which focus on a “specific colour design, developed from a common painting genre during the 18th and early 20th century, which gives an expressive appearance.”
The BMW i8 CrossFade`s design was also highly spoken by Adrian von Hooydonk, Senior Vice President of BMW Group Design, also stating that:
“Lapo Elkann is a pioneer in linking the disciplines of fashion, automobile and design. As a designer, I find this comprehensive approach particularly exciting. With BMW i, we have been successful in overcoming previous restrictions in automotive design through the use of entirely new materials. So the progressive expressiveness of the Garage Italia CrossFade Edition is perfectly in keeping with the BMW i3 and the BMW i8.”
At the exterior, the BMW i8 comes with a mixture between the Protonic Blue and Protonic Dark Silver, adding as well high-end features inside the cabin, like Alcantara fabrics covering the central tunnel, headliner, and side panels. We are also dealing here with Foglizzo leather seats, Protonic Blue and perforated Alcantara with contrast stitching.
As expected, the BMW i8 CrossFade by Garage Italia Customs has not received any mods under the hood, the model still packing the same I3 1.5-liter synchronous engine backed by an electric motor. The overall power stands at 362 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque, with a top speed of 250 km/h.
