The long wheelbase, short overhangs, precise lines, and sweeping silhouette give the appearance that the BMW i8 is surging forward even when it is standing still. The scissor doors of the BMW i8 provide an undeniable emotional and sporty allure that make it truly one-of-a-kind.
From front to back, the BMW i8 is dedicated to reducing drag. The streamflow design of the vehicle’s rear wing provides significant downforce all the way up to its top speed of 155 mph. EfficientDynamic technology allows vents to open and close to offer cooling, further reduce drag coefficient, and improve the vehicle’s overall aerodynamics while the front Air Curtains channel airflow through the back vents to cool the TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine.
In the BMW i8, energy can be repurposed while driving to charge the battery from thrust, braking, or directly from the gas engine. It can also be recovered whenever you’re hungry for an extra boost of power.
