Frozen Gray paint really comes at a premium these days.
Remember that one-off, Individual BMW i8 we told you about the other day? Well, it was just sold at auction at Pebble Beach, California, and it brought in a staggering amount. The Frozen Gray exterior and brown leather interior, in addition to bonuses like a matching carbon-fiber set of Louis Vuitton luggage, were enough to convince one buyer to shell out a whopping $825,000 for the stunning hybrid sports car. MSRP for a standard i8 is $135,700.
The Pebble Beach event also saw some of the first deliveries of i8's to US customers, ahead of its official sale debut in the fall of this year. As we reported, the waiting period for these models is quite long, so this auction provided a very pricy line-jumping for one lucky buyer.
