The cat is out of the bag. Auto Forum CZ has just leaked the first photos of the BMW i8 Spyder.

A rumored cabriolet version of the BMW i8 was floating around the interwebs since 2011 and through our channels we learned late last year that BMW was looking into creating a variant of the i8 that will further validate the market for the hybrid sportscar. The i8 Spyder will run on the same platform as the i8.

And yes, the gull-wing doors are still there.

We can’t reveal all the details at the moment, but stay tuned tomorrow for exclusive photos and information on the BMW i8 Spyder.

          Sweet. I was thinking that they looked pretty official! 

          Any word on when the concept debut would be? Maybe Beijing?

    Just clarifiyng and correct me if I’m wrong, but I think those aren’t gullwing doors (e.g. MB SLS AMG), they’re more like scissor doors (e.g. Lamborghini).

      Sure, if you wanna get technical, yes. Sometimes it’s a term that is interchangeable, but you’re right.

      “green bs”

      What do you mean by that?

  • Speedster

    it looks like the car is getting closer to production ready with the new closed panel doors as opposed to the glass ones.

    Looks very good. I like the shortened wheel base – the car now actually looks small.

    This is BMW Vision Efficient Dynamics right? It’s a bit different though.
