There’s no question that the most striking feature about the BMW i8 is its exterior. It still retains the iconic kidney grille on the front bumper, while the distinctive V-shaped black belt stretches along the entire car, underscoring its flat silhouette. Not only is it designed for aesthetics but for performance as well, with an impressive roofline that optimizes airflow and creates incredible aerodynamic speed. It also incorporates full-LED headlights and redesigned air curtains to finish its sporty looks. With a futuristic spaceship-like design, it’s natural to say that it’s out of this world.
The BMW i8 also has the performance specs to prove its more than just futuristic looks, because what’s under the hood is just as advanced. Few sports cars can properly fuse both the power of a traditional gas engine with the intelligent energy conservation and management of an electric motor and battery. Not only does this optimize the i8 towards a maximum horsepower of 357-hp, but it also minimizes fuel consumption as well. The results of this combination produce a powerful plug-in hybrid system that’s unprecedented in a BMW vehicle, once again proving the innovative engineering the company is so well known for.
The experience when you step inside the i8 is just as extraordinary. After opening the lightweight carbon fibre gull wing doors up to the air, you’ll feel you stepped inside a highly advanced cockpit equipped with intuitive controls and sharp contours on the dashboard. You’ll be surprised to learn the interior also uses recycled materials when you realize how exotic the cabin looks, as it also exudes premium comfort and convenience with power adjustable heated seats and hints of luxurious leather.The BMW i8 is bound to please, as it does excite.
