German Special Customs does the BMW i8 iTron

Article by Christian A., on October 10, 2014

The BMW i8 looks out of this world but German Special Customs had other opinion and decided that the plug-in hybrid supercar needs some styling improvements. As a result, German Special Customs made some renderings of their upcoming vehicle and as you can see, the i8 looks pretty good.

Dubbed the BMW i8 iTron, the new vehicle arrives with a brand new front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights, a carbon fiber front lip spoiler, a new hood with integrated air inlets and new side sills. At the rear, we find new exhaust tailpipes, a new rear apron with integrated air diffuser.

The design is completed by new 20-inch wheels wrapped in wider tyres. Engine remains the same, which means we find a 1.5-liter three-cylinder petrol engine that generates 231 hp (170 kW) and 320 Nm of torque.

In addition, the BMW i8 carries an electric motor that delivers 131 hp (96 kW) and 250 Nm of torque.

The hybrid powertrain has a total output of 362 hp (266 kW) and 570 Nm of torque, which enables the vehicle to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h.

Moreover, the i8 offers an all-electric range of 20 miles (32 km) and a top speed of 75 mph or 120 km/h. [source: German Special Customs]
