Here we bring you one of the most amazing photoshoots of the new BMW i8.

These latest photos show the BMW i8 painted in the Protonic Blue color. BMW i8 can be specified in a choice of four colors, three of which have been created exclusively for BMW i. All the paint finishes provide a striking contrast to the black belt: Ionic Silver, Protonic Blue, Crystal White and Sophisto Grey.

BMW i8 uses a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a turbocharged three-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine and BMW eDrive technology in the form of an electric drive system.

The 1.5-liter combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8, while the 96 kW/131 hp electric drive sends its power to the front wheels and allows an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).

The first plug-in hybrid sportscar will debut in the United States in August of this year and is also the second model of the new BMW i sub-brand. As with the i3, the core of the car is the LifeDrive architecture with carbon passenger cell which gives the i8 a particularly low weight.

    In the second picture, the i8 looks like it’s laughing and Porsche 911 is coming out of its mouth.

    2nd pic is ugly

  3. Spec9 says:

    Why doesn’t someone shamelessly copy much of that design and build a pure EV like that? Actually, that would probably be a bad idea, the back seat of the i8 is useless. The Tesla Model S is much more practical.
