The BMW i8 is already a car that attracts a lot of attention, thanks to its futuristic design. Looking like a real-life concept approved for mass production, the i8 is a magnet and a head-turner, even without any other flashy additions. However, that’s even more the case when you add a psychedelic color to the mix.

The guys from BMW Abu Dhabi are known for their daring projects and this one makes no exception.. Few dealerships in the world have delivered such bespoke projects as they did in their rather short life span. Yet, they’re not showing any signs of slowing down and their most recent project involved BMW’s plug-in hybrid sports car and a color called Twilight Purple. With enough money, the BMW Individual treatment can turn your car into anything you can think of, including Twilight Purple if you so desire.

Apart from the special exterior color, the car also received a full set of AC Schnitzer tuning parts as we’ve been getting used to when it comes to BMW i8 models delivered in Abu Dhabi. The list includes a set of AC Schnitzer wheels, a new splitter up front and a wing at the back, both made of carbon fiber for the best performance/weight ratio.

Under the hood, however, nothing was changed as AC Schnitzer doesn’t offer a tuning kit that improves the i8’s performance. That means we’re still dealing with 131 HP from the electric motor coupled with the 231 HP of the 1.5-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged mill at the back for a combined power of 362 HP and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft). No worries though, as that’s enough to allow the car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds from standstill.
