Spy Shots: BMW i8 Reveals New Details
It’s time to take a little break from the craziness that is the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and turn our attention to the upcoming BMW i8 hybrid sports car that was caught testing again in winter conditions.
As you can see from the new spy shots, the BMW i8 is revealing some new details, as we finally get a look at the prototype’s real lights up front and on the back. It is now clear that on the production car the rear lights differ from the concept, as its indicators are placed in the "wings.”
The production version i8 will combine a three-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor for a total output of about 400 horsepower. The engine will mate to a new dual-clutch transmission and will sprint the supercar from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds. The i8 will also boast a top speed of 155 mph.
The new BMW i8 is set to be unveiled later this year.
