Abu Dhabi Motors, the official BMW importer in UAE, is well-known for showcasing some uniquely specced BMWs. Their silver M4 and brown i8 attracted lots of attention last year and now we bring you an i8 with white exterior paint along with Java Green accents.
Inside, the sports car gets a white and black colour combination. That said, there’s no tweaks to the performance of the i8. This means there’s a three-cylinder 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine that produces 228 hp, which is transmitted to the rear wheels through a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Meanwhile, between the front wheels is the 128 hp electric motor driving them through a two-speed automatic transmission. In Sport mode, these motors work in unison and the i8 produces 356 hp, enabling it to reach 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds and achieve a top speed of 250 km/h.
With use of lightweight material like aluminium, composite carbon fibre and polycarbonate glass, the i8 weighs just 1485 kilograms. The passenger cell in entirely made of carbon fibre and the lithium-ion batteries are under the body. As a result, the car hugs the ground with a 50:50 weight distribution for great handling and maneuverability.
