The folks over at Stanceworks are bringing us a photoshoot of the BMW i3 and i8 project cars by IND. Both cars were unveiled last week prior to their debut at the 2015 Bimmerfest.

For the i3 project, the folks over at 3D Design paired up IND to install a carbon fiber front lip painted in gloss black. The side mirrors were also swapped out for new carbon fiber mirror caps. A set of Cobra lowering springs bring the i3 closer to the ground.

HRE Wheels donated to the project a set of their 303 M wheels painted in electric blue color on the outer barrel and face and with a gloss charcoal inner barrel.

IND decided to approach the i8 tuning project with caution and they only installed their painted reflectors while giving the car a sportier stance, thanks to the Cobra lowering springs.

For the wheels upgrade, they went with the HRE S101 wheels with gloss charcoal outer barrel and face, and electric blue inner barrel.

BMW i8 utilizes 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).
