BMW i3 Shadow Sport special edition revealed

Following a preview yesterday, BMW has now gone ahead and unveiled the i3 Shadow Sport special edition at the LA Auto Show.

BMW i3 Shadow Sport

As predicted, the special edition is merely a range of sporty cosmetic highlights, including some blue trimmings and an optional Deka World grey interior. It’s based on the electric-only version of the i3 and not the version with the range-extending petrol engine.

Unique features include a Fluid Black exterior colour – black isn’t usually a factory option for the i3 – blending in with a full glass moon roof. A set of turbine-style 19-inch wheels are also fitted to dress up the exterior.

No changes are made to the powertrain, leaving the 22kWh electric motor to its usual 125kW output. It can perform 0-100km/h in 7.2 seconds, partly thanks to the carbon fibre body and low kerb weight of 1195kg.

The Shadow Sport edition will go on sale in the US market only, starting from US$47,400.
