2015 BMW i8
One European's experience at Bonneville's famous SpeedWeek.
Through the SEMA Technology Initiative, Ford was able to collaborate with several of those companies to produce a low-volume niche vehicle. Ewing had the design, SEMA had the suppliers and soon, the GTX1 was born.
Classic Car Overview
From the moment you lay eyes on the BMW i8, its futuristic appearance commands attention. Its low, wide stance, aerodynamic lines, and scissor doors give it an unmistakably sporty and aggressive presence on the road. The striking LED headlights and taillights further enhance its modern aesthetic, while the sleek, flowing body contours optimize aerodynamic efficiency.
Underneath its sleek exterior, the i8 utilizes a sophisticated hybrid powertrain that combines a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric motor. The gasoline engine, located at the rear, produces 228 horsepower, while the electric motor, positioned at the front, adds an additional 129 horsepower. Together, they deliver a combined output of 357 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. The power is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
The electric motor draws its energy from a lithium-ion battery pack that can be charged using a standard household outlet or a dedicated charging station. This allows the i8 to travel up to 23 miles on electric power alone, making it ideal for short commutes or city driving. When the gasoline engine and electric motor work in harmony, the i8 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds, providing exhilarating performance that rivals many high-performance sports cars.
