2015 BMW Vision Supercar rendered
It’s been a long time now since we first heard of BMW preparing a new supercar with an exterior design inspired by the Vision EfficientDynamics unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Today we bring you a new rendering of the future supercar courtesy of Road and Track. The new supercar will make its world debut in 2015.
Previous rumors suggest the next BMW Vision Supercar will use a hybrid powertrain that will combine a V10 engine that develops 507 HP at 7750 rpm and a torque of 520 Nm with two electric motors, one on the front axle and the second one at the rear between the V10 and the six-speed M-Sport automatic transmission. The first electric motor will deliver 80-115 hp and the back one will deliver more than 50 hp. Thanks to an all-new aluminum chassis, carbon fiber bodywork, fine Kevlar bucket seats, and several magnesium and plastic parts, the M8 will weigh just under 1500 kilograms. All this will help the supercar sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds.
