The high-performance BMW i8 is ending up in our news again, this time in a rendering recently launched online, showcasing the plug-in hybrid in a four-door body style.
The rendering is signed by the famous designer Theophilus Chin and gives us a closer look on how the i8 model would look like in a four-door body.
The image with the four-door BMW i8 is based on the present i8 model and it is nothing more than a mere imagery exercise, as the model in question is unlikely to appear in the near future.
The BMW i8 plug-in hybrid began sales this summer, coming equipped with a 1.5-liter with three-cylinder turbocharged TwinPower Turbo petrol burner, backed by the BMW eDrive technology electric drive system.
The 1.5-liter unit develops 231 horsepower, while the electric drive provides an extra 131 horsepower, sending the power to the front wheels, allowing the car an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers.
The BMW i8 plug-in hybrid is priced from $131,700, with some dealerships to ask an additional $100,000 over the MSRP, given the fact that a special edition of an i8 was recently sold out for a rough $825,000 in Pebble Beach.
