NASCAR BMW i8

AUG 17 2016 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 3

NASCAR and plug-in electric cars? Not likely a match today, but definitely at some point in the future.

Yasid Design created his rendered version of a NASCAR BMW i8.

The car doesn’t exist in reality and is simply a mash up of a stock i8 and a more conventional NASCAR race car, but we’re certain that someday we’ll see plug-ins on the NASCAR circuit.

BMWBLOG adds:

“Yasid Design takes the base BMW i8 and nearly changes the entire exterior design of the hybrid sportscar. The iconic BMW kidney grilles stay in place, along with the elongated and sleek headlights, while the air curtains at the bottom of the front fascia have been slightly revised.”

“The design of the hood has also been retained, but the side of the car and rear have been revised to closely resemble the glorious NASCAR machines.”

Some additional details, as well as video of how the rendering was accomplished, can be found on the Yasid Design Facebook page here.

Not going to happen. They don’t even have a fuel gauge. Maybe as a separate series akin to Formula E.

Hey look! We still have horse racing long after we stopped using horses for transportation.

Plus we stil have track and field in the olympics…

At some point gas will be outlawed but they could switch to hydrogen as a combustable fuel…

So in this rendering NASCAR accepted plug in technology but still uses the stupid 15 inch wheels?
