BMW i3 by 3D Design

I guess for BMW vehicles to be hybrids and electric models sounds a bit odd to me; sure, it comes with the territory and the adjustment to customer demands. However, I somewhat feel that the Bavarian company has strayed away from its origins and legacy. If I were to drive around in a BMW i3, I would love for it to be truly customized to my taste. Take this particular one, for instance, tuned-up by the talented team at 3D Design.

The Japanese tuning company is rather well-known for developing stylish add-on parts for the German cars. In order to get perfect results, they also joined forces with another famous Japanese tuner, Studie. The end project is this rather spectacular BMW i3 you see before you, featuring a Fire Orange paint-job, the same color that was first introduced on the limited spec E92 M3 GTS.

The same color is featured throughout the cabin as well, only to add a couple of black accents here and there. The front fascia received a new front splitter on the bumper, from 3D Design, while the roof is now sporting a spoiler as well, noticeable on the rear window. Other mods worth mentioning include a drop in height and orange Recaro front seats; not to mention a retrofitted BMW Active Sound Design system. This means you can choose the engine sound you prefer between a V8, V10, V12 or even a trademark inline 6-cylinder. A bit quirky, yet fun!
