BMW i8 SPYDER CONCEPT

Posted by

Based on last year’s i8, the new BMW i8 Spyder Concept ($TBA) takes the company’s experimental hybrid line to new heights with a two-section folding roof, upward-opening doors, and slightly updated — and improved — looks. This beauty of a machine also includes a 131 hp electric motor to drive the front wheels, a 223 hp turbocharged gas three-cylinder powering the rear wheels — a setup that allows for front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive, as well as 78 mpg fuel economy — 50:50 weight distribution, a 0-62 mph sprint of five seconds, a top speed of 155 mph, and copious use of lightweight materials.
