BMW i8 Roadster “4 Elements” Art Car Will Help Clean Our Oceans

An unofficial BMW i8 Roadster art car will be auctioned off to support The Ocean Cleanup, an organization dedicated to removing plastic from the world’s oceans.

This i8 Roadster has been customized by Czech artist Milan Kunc and is dubbed the ‘4 Elements’, with the colorful paint aimed at highlighting many of the environmental issues our planet is facing.

For example, the hood of the hybrid sports car features a large butterfly and vegetation which is meant to “represent the element of air and energy transformation of natural forces”. Elsewhere, the side of the i8 Roadster represents the earth and air and includes rolling hills, flowers, and bees. On the left side, you’ll find a water-inspired theme with fish, snails, crabs, starfish and more. The final aspect of the vehicle’s exterior paint is fire.

Prior to heading to auction, the i8 Roadster 4 Element will be displayed at the Invelt Showroom in Prague. From there, it will make its way to the BMW Museum in Munich before heading to auction.

Like all i8 Roadsters, it is powered by a mid-mounted turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine delivering 228 hp and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque. Mated to this engine is a 141 hp electric motor the powers the front wheels. Total output is rated at 368 hp and the powertrain incorporates a six-speed automatic transmission.
