The historic Mille Miglia is always chock full of some of the most incredible automobiles to ever grace the roads. This year, BMW is celebrating the event with a very special version of their flagship supercar, the BMW i8 Futurism Edition. The special edition is echoes the company's Art Car history with a vibrant and colorful exterior that was created in collaboration with Garage Italia Customs. 

The pattern on the exterior is taken from "Lampada ad Arco" (Street Light), a piece by artist Giacomo Balla. The work, which currently hangs in the Museum of Modern of Art in New York shows a street light illuminated with striking colors, a pattern that has been perfectly replicated onto the exterior of the i8.
