Both will be will be produced in a limited run, and feature a unique exterior BMW Individual paint finish corresponding to their names, along with Frozen Grey metallic accents. They are also fitted with 20-inch BMW W-spoke 470 light-wheel wheels painted in Orbit Grey metallic.

Inside, both Protonic Edition models come with yellow contrast stitching on various surfaces like the seats, centre console, side panels, door cards, floor mats and the lower section of the instrument panel.

An anthracite-coloured headliner, grey seatbelt straps, a different gear selector lever and iDrive Controller, and door sills bearing the “Edition” inscription, provide the finishing touches to the special-edition models.
