If you take a look at the overall design of this i8, you will see a vehicle with a spaceship-like design, especially with the eye catchy black and blue combination. And the fact that such a good looking ride is actually made from the hybrid power is quite impressive in its own way. Another cool thing about this ride is the vertically lifted doors with laser headlights. Wow, it is definitely something new, right? Of course, Beemer is using the safe laser beam headlights that are more powerful and intense than the LEDs. But they aren’t completely all laser, really, because they are combined with the LED.
For the interior cabin, the overall design is plush, futuristic, and simply amazing. The visibility is great, thanks to the smart arrangement of the cockpit. Despite the four seating arrangement, the cabin itself is pretty small. The space for the rear seat is only limited for kids instead of adults. For the front seats, the overall arrangement is comfortable and plush. One among the 2018 BMW i8 specs is the solid support lumbar system. You can spend the whole day driving and you won’t end up feeling exhausted at all.
Engine and Power
This i8 is running on three different engines, the AC motor, the inline three turbo engine with 228 hp of power, and also the stronger AC motor with 129 hp of power. But of course, you can expect more from such a powerful ride like i8. With the combined 2018 BMW i8 specs and features, along with the stylish design, this vehicle is definitely a sight for sore eyes.
