AC Schnitzer’s tuned BMW i8 was spotted in the wild in Netherlands. The styling package designed by AC Schnitzer includes a carbon fiber front spoiler, carbon fiber side skirts and a carbon fiber rear wing.

To enhance the driving dynamics, a lowering kit was applied to the i8 which reduces the ride height by 25mm front and 20mm at the rear. The original i8 by AC Schnitzer was scheduled to run on 21-inch AC1 forged alloy wheels that are approximately 30% lighter than the standard wheels. The company says they are 4kg or 9 lbs lighter than the stock wheels.

Yet the car spotted features Asanti custom wheels painted in black and with blue accents.

In the back, the i8 gets a racing wing for that extra pop. Not that the i8 needs that.

    People hate on this car, but they can’t deny that it’s the future. Plain and simple. They’ll shut up when their manufacturer of choice comes out with a copycat in 3 years.
