We are live from the Frankfurt IAA 2013 auto show where BMW has officially debuted the production BMW i8 hybrid electric car.

We’ve already shown you the i8 in silver and black, but BMW debuted the i8 at the Frankfurt show in an even wilder color – Protonic Blue Metallic with frozen grey accents.

David (Dackelone) was on hand to witness the reveal and gives us this first look at the i8 in Protonic Blue.
