Spy shots: BMW i8 shows its wings
Although its been just a few days since we last brought you a series of BMW i8 spy shots, today is time to see the car in action one more time. The good news is that this time the i8 is showing its gullwing doors, a confirmation that they will find their way into the production version of the supercar.
And, as you most likely know the production version i8 will stay faithful to the concept’s design, with some minor changes so that it can actually go out on the street. Up front you will see elements from the BMW’s latest design language started by the new 3-Series, while both the headlights and the rear lights will have a different design compared to the concept.
As for the engine, the i8 will combine a 1.5 liter inline 3 engine with two electric motors. Final output will be somewhere in the 400 HP, while the autonomy will be in the 249 miles area.
