Clearly, the BMW i8 is a high-performance coupe in every facet of its being. It garners most of the by-passers’ attention thanks to its futuristic looks, a powerful powertrain and impressive fuel economy. Developed especially for this model, the powertrain is a combination of a 1.5 liter three-cylinder petrol engine and electric motors, powering all four wheels. The combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8.
Furthermore, there is a 96 kW/131 hp electric drive as well, which sends its power to the front wheels and allows an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph). Thanks to this powertrain combination, the BMW i8 will accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.2 seconds. The vehicle is capable of going all the way up to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph (250km/h).
The BMW i8 is one of the most complete cars when the exterior design comes into play. But, for many, the only drawback is the design of the factory wheels. Luckily, the aftermarket industry comes with plenty of answers to this pressing question.
For the owner of this matte black BMW i8, the choice landed with a set of EDC Challenge forged wheels. While the i8 comes with futuristic looks, these wheels add that classical Y-Spoke design and big lips, where the complete thing, now a mix of new and old, looks quite impressive. The owner of this vehicle went with wheel sizes of 22×9.5 and 22×11.5 in the front and rear, respectively.
With the stylish Matte Bronze finish, the wheels complement the matte black beast quite nicely. Check out the complete media gallery of this build right below.
