BMW fans are often known for their wild imagination when it comes to future cars and some of the most rendered vehicles of the future are the supercars. BMW’s lack of a proper supercar since the almighty M1 has sparked a lot of conversations and debates over the years, and some of those were accompanied by car renderings, some more real than others.
But today’s rendering is not one of those that resemble anything close to a future BMW model.
A BMW fan has decided to 3D render the rumored BMW i9.
According to Autocar, the BMW i9 has been approved for launch in 2016. The UK magazine says the car will be called i9 and would use the same carbon fiber tub as the i8 but would get more aggressive styling, a larger engine and a more powerful electric motor.
The engine is expected to be the new modular 3.0 liter six-cylinder unit that will appear in the 2016 BMW 7 Series.
Styling wise, it’s unknown if the i9 would be a two door model like the i8 or a larger, sleeker vehicle with four doors. But one thing we know for sure, it will not resemble the Batmobile seen here. Even though the rendering is daring and unique, it is far from what a production-ready BMW would ever look like.
Yet, it makes for a great conversation topic around Christmas holidays.
