BMW i4 M50, here is the special series from Kith

BMW has announced a new collaboration with New York lifestyle brand Kith, founded by Ronnie Fieg, that made it possible to create an exclusive BMW i4 mini-series. This isn’t the first time the German manufacturer has teamed up with Kith to create a limited-edition collector’s car. Indeed, in 2020, the BMW M4 Competition x Kith was created which was then produced in 150 samples and went on sale in a very short time. The success of this exclusive limited series convinced the two companies to work together again. Only 7 examples The result of the cooperation between the two companies is a special series of BMW i4 M50 (which we tested in the past) which will be manufactured in only 7 samples. The first will be sold at auction. The cars will be recognized for some custom aesthetics starting with the special Kitth Vitality green body colour. The color also finds its place in the BMW logo which has been modified for the occasion by incorporating the name Kith into it as well. Speaking of the interior, the car is equipped with caramel-colored leather upholstery. The headrests and armrests feature the iconic Kith logo. Indications to the fashion brand are also found at the bottom of the dashboard and in other areas of the passenger compartment. The front and rear floor mats are finished in caramel leather. Compared to the BMW i4 M50, the standard equipment also includes the M brake system with red calipers, the M Aerodynamics package, the BMW Individual Shadow Line and Driving Assistant Plus package, however, there are no changes regarding the powertrain. Therefore, we always have two electric motors capable of providing a maximum power of 400 kW which allows us to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.9 seconds. Autonomy, according to the WLTP cycle, reaches 520 km. The drive system is all-wheel drive. To launch this special series, Kith created not only a range of accessories inspired by this electric model but also a one-off based on the BMW 1602 from 1972, which was converted to run on electric power. It is a tribute to the BMW 1602 Elektro that was used in the 1972 Munich Olympics
