Posted on May 29, 2021June 2, 2021 by WillemSaturday/ déjà vu, with the blue? There was a BMW i8 parked on 15th Avenue today. I might have caught a glimpse of this particular one before, when it was still all blue. P.S. I was in the passenger seat of a Tesla Model Y as I took these drive-by pictures. 🙂 It’s hard to say what model year this $150,000 BMW i8 coupé is exactly, but it’s an older car. The protonic blue paint was available from 2014 to 2016. Looks like the owner had it wrapped in matt black, and also put on the striking blue wheels (but a blue that does not quite match the protonic blue). The car is a plug-in hybrid. It can be run on gasoline (rear-wheel drive) or electricity from its battery (front-wheel drive), or both.
