Our friend, James McDonnell (@lordmcdonnell) does it again with his now-bagged matte black BMW i8 on Vossen LC-104 Wheels!

James’ BMW i8 is no stranger to the Vossen cameras, though. Last year this very same i8 (before the matte black wrap and fitted with our VPS-305T forged wheels) teamed up with Lou La Vie’s i8 for a day in the Port of Miami. In fact, none of his cars have been left out—from his 5 Series to the Range Rover Autobiography Edition—they’ve all crossed our lenses at one point or another.

However, James has totally transformed the look of the i8 over the past year, from the original white and red color scheme to matte black and copper, and now to a clean and classy matte black and full polish. Now fitted with air suspension, care of our good friends at Accuair (@accuair) and installed by Danny at Slammered (@slammered), the Bavarian hybrid exotic car reaches new lows, changing the entire aesthetic of the car.

Measuring 22×9 up front and 22×10.5 in the rear, the new Vossen Forged: LC Series LC-104 wheels are fully polished with a clear powder coat, creating a very stark contrast against the sleek, matte black body lines. The LC-104s are machined, polished, and powder coated entirely in-house, in our TUV Verified factory located in Miami, Florida.

Stay tuned to see what James comes up with next, as this is one of the most constantly-evolving cars we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the past year.
