The BMW i8 is one of the most innovative cars ever built by the Munich-based automaker. It uses a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a turbocharged three-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine and BMW eDrive technology in the form of an electric drive system.
The 1.5-liter combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8, while the 96 kW/131 hp electric drive 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).
Its exotic looks has received accolades from customers and journalists around the world, and it’s considered to be BMW’s flagship car.
So what can you add visually to an already perfect car? Many would resort to some carbon fiber aero parts but that will be in a way pointless on a car that was built with aerodynamics in mind. So next best thing is a set of custom wheels that will make it stand out even more on the street. Not that it needs to…
This particular BMW i8 went to Wheels Boutique who added a set of HRE RS102 wheels. The wheels come in sizes of 22×9 and 22×10.5 in the front and rear, a perfect fit for the futuristic looking hybrid. The wheels are finished in a vibrant blue color which works well with the other blue accents on the car.
Additionally, this i8 was lowered by utilizing a set of lowering springs, making the car look even more aggressive.
