Rendered speculation: BMW i8 Spyder tuned by Vorsteiner looks absolutely insane

Article by Christian A., on January 21, 2014

OK, we admit… it is only a rendering but it looks impressive! Made by Thomas van Rooji, the new rendering shows the upcoming BMW i8 Spyder fitted with a new set of wheels from Vorsteiner but also with a new paint scheme featuring some golden accents, as well as a new suspension. For those who don’t know, BMW insiders announced that the Bavarian manufacturer will build the i8 Spyder, which means that we should expect the vehicle later this year.

Just like the coupe version, the i8 Spyder will use the same 1.5-liter petrol engine rated at 231 hp (170 kW) and 320 Nm of torque, mated to an electric driver system and a lithium-ion battery.

The vehicle will also carry an electric motor that develops 131 hp (96 kW) and 250 Nm of torque. With a total system output of 362 hp (266 kW) and 570 Nm of torque, the i8 Spyder will be able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds while the top speed will be electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h. 

Using just the “juice” from the battery, the i8 Spyder will be able to travel for a distance of 35 km (22 miles) at speeds of up to 120 km/h or 75 mph. Fuel consumption will be less than 2.5 liters/100 km (over 113 mpg) with CO2 emissions of less than 59 grams per kilometer.
