The i3’s New Threads
BMW i3 MR PORTER Edition

For its 5th anniversary, luxury based e-commerce fashion retailer MR PORTER has joined forces with BMW to create a special edition i3 to celebrate this memorable milestone. The BMW i3 MR PORTER Edition takes design cues from the enduring appeal of the tuxedo and the luxury of bespoke suiting. Styling features include a hand-drawn “pinstripe” detail along the chassis, a MR PORTER badge and signatures on the boot, Capparis white hand-painted accents which pay tribute to the crisp collar and cuffs of a dress shirt, and certified dark oak trim and dark-brown leather floor mats with Dalbergia-brown piping.

The BMW i3 MR PORTER Edition also sports a “MR PORTER Essentials Travel Kit” packed in a sleek BMW i holdall. Inside, owners will find five exclusive items: a Leica C compact camera, a pair of Cutler and Gross sunglasses, a black and white London Undercover umbrella, a Lock & Co Hatters bowler hat, and a bespoke-edition set of “Wallpaper* City Guides”.

Designed for “anyone who loves the extraordinary”, says Benoit Jacob – the head of design at BMW i, the BMW i3 is regarded as the first car in the BMW history to be developed entirely for electric driving. Power is supplied by a 130kW electric motor; its battery can be charged via a conventional socket overnight, or in 30 minutes from a dedicated rapid charger. Significantly, with its emission-free electric motor and construction using 95% recyclable materials, the BMW i3 is an uncompromising vehicle designed for urban living and a natural choice those searching for a new form of sustainable driving experience and pleasure.

Priced at £39,000, the BMW i3 MR PORTER Edition is only available for purchase in the U.K. Look for more details on MR PORTER now.
