BMW i8 will attract attention wherever it goes; engineers and designers of the company made sure of that when they created this hybrid sports car.
This vehicle was introduced to worldwide markets in 2014, and now, three years later it is set to receive its first update. It will be slightly modified to stay fresh for its customers, but even if it remained the same, it wouldn’t be all that bad. Why? Well BMW i8 is one of the most futuristic looking cars which is available to the every-day driver. Yes, it cost quite a bit (price for a base model is around $145,000), but this is nothing in comparison to what it offers or just how much some other supercars cost.
For this price, you get a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder gas engine helped by a 7.1-kWh battery pack and two electric motors. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the electric motors use a two-speed gearbox to transfer power solely to the front wheels. The three-headed powertrain can produce 357 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. This vehicle also comes with four-wheel drive.
Back to the specially colored i8. Standard model comes in various colors and with different equipment, but it also can be customized by its owners. Today we have an example of one of the BMW i8 owners who wasn’t satisfied with its original looks. We believe that he went a little over the top, but we will leave you our loyal readers to be the judges of that.
The BMW I8 in question was covered in a relatively unique color wrap. The camouflage clothes on this vehicle look like some kind of a snow leopard-UFO hybrid. No matter whether you are a fan of trucks, SUVs, sedans, super/hyper cars there is no way in hell you won’t notice this one when it comes your way. The owner of this car made sure of that.
