Its raining heavily in Mumbai, weather is romantic, what’s better way to celebrate such weather with environment friendly BMW i8 hybrid sports car. Actress & dancer Rakhi Sawant actually did this with his friend’s i8. She enjoyed rain lying on the bonnet of Rs. 3 crore worth sports car.
The BMW i8 combines many unique attributes: sports car, coupé or roadster, pioneer, brand-shaper, innovator, future-oriented design. A typical future classic. The design of the BMW i8 was futuristic when production began in 2014 – and still is today. Showing its age? Far from it for this BMW sports car. On the contrary, whether it’s a BMW i8 roadster or coupé, even today they both still represent a glimpse of the car of tomorrow. The aerodynamically sophisticated design of the BMW i8 can be traced back to the concept study BMW Vision EfficientDynamics, which was first presented to the public at the 2009 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Germany.
The combustion engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology provides power to the rear wheels, while the electric motor drives the front wheels. The result is an all-wheel drive. A high degree of traction is therefore always guaranteed – as well as necessary. Thanks to the 250 Nm torque of the electric engine and the 320 Nm of the combustion engine, the BMW i8 delivers sports car numbers for acceleration. At the same time, if desired, the hybrid sports car can reach speeds of up to around 75 mph (120 km/h) in electric mode, meaning locally emission-free. All told, this cutting-edge performance means the performance of a sports car, with the fuel consumption of a small car. A sports car that can well and truly count itself among the ranks of low emission cars.
