The BMW i3 Starlight Edition and i8 Starlight Edition feature a unique two-tone paint scheme in gold and black on the exterior. This special edition was designed by painter Miroslav Spicak and designer Zoltan Matuska. The cars have been dubbed as Starlight because of the way how the gold dust resembles stars during the night on the car’s body.

Gold dust of 23.75 karat by Liebscher Blattgold GmbH has been applied using a specially developed technique by BMW’s paint partners at Toplac to create a flawless finish. Both cars are covered with four layers of gold, of which the last fourth layer is hand applied.

While BMW hasn’t disclosed the price of the i3 Starlight and i8 Starlight, it is said that the cars will be sold at a charity auction supporting the Dagmar and Václav Havel Foundation VIZE 97.
