Looking to increse the appeal of the i3, BMW decided to introduce a new special edition of its electric city car. The new i3 was developed with mrporter.com, the award-winning online destination for men’s style. The model is also a demonstration of customizing options available for the i3.

Reminiscent of the classic tuxedo, one of the most stylish garments in menswear, the limited edition BMW i3 comes with an exterior in tuxedo blue, specially developed for this version. Distinctive features on each of the numbered editions have been handcrafted to ensure a completely unique finish: the individual painting, and the white accent running the length of the chassis – which can be associated with the pinstripe suit – are hand painted by master craftsmen.

The car comes complete with a Mr Porter Essentials Travel Kit that consists of a BMW i leather holdall and four items exclusive to Mr Porter: a black and white London undercover umbrella, a special edition Leica camera, Cutler & Gross sunglasses, Lock & Co bowler hat and a bespoke edition of Phaidon City Guide Book.

As with the standard car, the special i3 will use an electric engine with 170 hp and peak torque of 250Nm. This allows the BMW i3 to sprint from zero to 37 mph in a mere 3.7 seconds and zero to 62mph in just 7.2 seconds, while the lithium-ion battery gives a range of 80–100 miles in everyday driving.

The special edition i3 will also celebrate Mr Porter’s fifth anniversary. So only a limited number of BMW i3 cars will be available to purchase in the UK. It will be priced at £43,500 and orders can be placed from 18th February 2016.
