2020 BMW i8 Roadster Ultimate Sophisto Edition Specs

BMW i8 Roadster

The exclusive Ultimate Sophisto Edition i8 Roadster is BMW’s way of bidding the i8 range farewell, as production of the hybrid will cease in April for good. It’s an attractive goodbye, and only 200 units will be produced of the coupe and roadster combined worldwide. This special edition receives Sophisto Grey paint with E-Copper contrast trim and E-Copper 20-inch alloy wheels and black-painted brake calipers. Inside, the Ultimate Sophisto Edition receives E-Copper leather and dons “1 out of 200” badging. This version sees a lot more copper, and if you want one, you’ll have to go directly to BMW and ask for it, thanks to its exclusivity.
