The BMW i8 is arguably one of the best-looking plug-in electric cars on the planet, so why mess with its exterior design?   Apparently a Japanese take on the German car sounded like a good idea to someone.

As BMWBLOG reports:

"ENERGY MOTOR SPORT in Japan released a series of aftermarket parts for the BMW i8. The hybrid sportscar gets an EVO i8 bodykit which consists of a redesigned and more aggressive front bumper, front and rear over fenders, a rear wing for increased visuals and downforce, a rear flipper and new side mirror covers."

"To stand out even more in the still fairly limited crowd of i8 cars, the BMW i8 Cyber Edition comes with a new “paint job”. Using a wrap by P.G.D, this modified i8 features a silver chrome color, with a shinny patina which gives the hybrid sportscar an even more exotic look."

Um...no.

Leave the i8 alone. This should be considered a crime against automotive excellence.
