Description

About this Collectable

When BMW founded the i-label, it was expected that the Bavarian brand would come onto the market with sensible, clean cars. It is therefore all the more special that their first feat of arms was a sports car. But one that is indeed economical and has smart technology to convert electricity into forward momentum. The i8 is typically such a car that was way ahead of its time, but is already a lot better understood. With four seats, sporty performance and low consumption, this is truly a special car.

It all starts with the lines. The body, designed by Benoit Jacob, attracts a lot of attention due to its interesting appearance. The front of the i8 is low, as befits a sports car. Even cooler is the back. The rear lights are part of the airflow over the body, and are 'covered' at the top with wings. As a result, the airflow finds its way over the side of the i8, and then leaves the car through the tunnel that the rear light creates. Partly due to this aerodynamic trick, the BMW has a CW value of only 0.26. Very favorable for consumption, but with this attractive solution also a feast for the eyes.

To make the whole look even more sinister, this example is executed in Sophisto grau. A deep gray color that gives the i8 exactly the masculin looks that a sports car should have. The Carumgrau interior fits well with the paintwork. A head-up display, a pleasantly working navigation and seat heating provide the necessary comfort and ease of use, while the combined power of 362 hp provides plenty of pleasure. The sprint to 100 is done in 4.4 seconds, and the i8 reaches a top speed of 250 km/h. Who ever thought that hybrids could only be sensible, is so wrong…

But how does the car compare to the competition? Actually, that's a question with a short answer. The i8 has no real competition. The concept of a hybrid sports car with four seats is so unique that even in 2021 (so 7 years after the introduction of the i8!) no new competitors for the BMW have appeared on the scene. Yes, the i* was always compared with the 911. But 'everybody' already has one, and you can't park it in a green parking lot…

This example is an original Dutch car that was delivered in 2015 by BMW Dusseldorp and has always been serviced at the BMW dealer. The last service was performed on 29-06-2021 by BMW dealer Ekris.
