The BMW i8 stands out with its futuristic lines, sporty interior and a highly advanced drivetrain. While its design is near perfection, there are always subtle things that can improve its looks, one of them is a new pair of custom wheels.
HRE Performance Wheels, one of the best in the wheels business, have applied their experience in the motorsport, racing applications and street cars to create a wheel line for the BMW i8. The wheels installed on the hybrid sportscar are the HRE RS103 line. Featuring a multispoke, the custom wheels add a classy look to the sportiness of the i8’s design, thanks to its black spokes matched with the silver color of the wheel.
The BMW i8 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). The powertrain allows the BMW i8 to sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in in 4.8 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 260 km/h (160 mph).
