The 2018 BMW i8 Spyder boasts intricately tweaked LED lights, fitting the regular i8’s tailgate. It has also a couple of humps, which can be spotted behind the driver and passenger and it creates more visual drama.
In order to lower the roof, the car owner will require manually removing it and stowing this stuff away. Apparently, the Spyder’s design will most probably make it heavier compared with the regular coupé i8, although nobody knows yet how it will influence performance.
Just like the facelifted coupe, the 2018 BMW i8 Spyder could obtain a 10% power lift from its upgraded petrol-electric hybrid powerplant, capable of demonstrating up to 420bhp. The i8 coupé is currently deriving power from a fettled turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol powerplant, which functions in tandem with a front-mounted synchronous electric motor.
As for the car’s interior, it’s expected to come with the car maker’s fresh iDrive infotainment system, boasting gesture control technology.
The i8 coupé is worth £100,000, though the facelifted version is supposed to have a slight price lift.
