Model: Matchbox BMW i8
Line: 2018 Matchbox Mainline
Where to get it: Hitting stores this summer.
Why it will be in the collection: Here is the (essentially) finished Matchbox BMW i8. Somewhat expected after the release of the i3, but exciting nonetheless. From what I understand, the BMW i8 has been on designer’s wish lists for awhile, but how to execute the model has been the problem.
Well the Matchbox Team figure it out, and it is nice to see it finished, and how great it looks. The blue trim pops right off the black body, just like the i3, and the details and unique lines are there as well.
The plan is to have two of these in 2018, with the other part of the opening parts series. We will worry about that one when it arrives, as for now it is all about the basic. The window might be a little darker in later versions, but other than that this is how it will look.
We don’t see a lot of supercar silhouettes in Matchbox anymore, so this is most welcome, and a great choice.
