The new colours will be available as an optional from all i Agent BMW dealerships and are priced from £5,495.

A variety of finishes are also available, including non-metallic, metallic or Xirallic, which uses a mixture of synthetic mica or aluminium flakes to produce scintillating effects.

The new BMW Individual paint programme for the BMW i8 follows the success of the early orders for the Protonic Red limited edition and is bespoke to the UK.

Richard Hudson, sales director for BMW UK, said: “The BMW i8 embodies the accomplished vision of a modern and sustainable sports car.

“The new paintwork colours not only complement the BMW i8s emotive styling and design, they also work harmoniously with the BMW i brand and provide customers with exclusive personalised options.”

Over 1,400 BMW i8s have been sold in the UK since the launch in 2014.

The hybrid coupe delivers 357bhp and can cover up to 23 miles in electric only mode, claiming CO2 emissions of just 49g/km and a combined consumption figure of 134.5mpg.
