BMW i8

BMW have created something great here with this new BMW i8. This car has been featured on Top Gear and many other car shows for its unique angle on what a modern supercar should be. This BMW i8 has a beautiful, smooth, stylish design that include a mean looking grille, eagle-winged like doors and a unique look giving it a firm supercar stance. The i8 plug-in hybrid is a truly phenomenal vehicle. The interior seats four in luxury befitting a 5 star hotel. A turbocharged three-cylinder gas engine teams with two electric motors for a combined 357 bhp; the i8 hits 60 mph faster than an M3. Top speed is 155 mph; fuel economy is less than 30 mpg—amazing for a supercar but not for a plug-in. Handling is good, steering is very sharp and braking is as great as any high end car.

At first glance, the i8 is a beautifully designed sports car. Extremely low and wide when viewed from the front, a supercar stance with powerfully sculpted surfaces and precise contours. Look more closely, and it’s an ingenious new vehicle concept, with a design devoted to two functions: efficiency and driving dynamics. There is no denying this.

The BMW i8 has all the characteristics of a full-blooded sports car with its long wheelbase, short overhangs and a solid posture. The entire shape and form of the i8 follows the BMW i design philosophy, creating a unique connection between ground-breaking sustainability and premium design. Including the ‘black belt’, an unmistakeable design element that runs from the front, over the roof, to the rear in all BMW i models. This works in perfect harmony with the dynamic stream-flow design, Aero Curtains, U-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights and LED rear lights and prominent double kidney grille which are all strikingly distinctive BMW i features.

The interior is beautiful and designed keeping BMW’s future in mind. This 4 wheel drive car has leather seats, a BMW i ConnectedDrive solution, BMW i8 Professional Navigation System, including BMW i ConnectedDrive services for navigation, has been specially developed to make driving as easy and comfortable as possible. The navigation system also tells you where your nearest ChargeNow charging stations are. It also features a concierge service.
