A gorgeous BMW i8 finished in matter orange has been recently seen resting in a parking lot in Sint-Martens Latem, the model being the subject of a lot of photos and head-turning. Surely, this is a rare occasion to get your eyes on such an exclusive model, especially since it was just awarded the International Engine of the Year.
The matte orange BMW i8 seen here was photo shot while sitting in Sint-Martiens-Latem, in Belgium, quietly waiting for its rightful owner and at a closer look, we might add that it looks extraordinary, even if some people might think that the exterior finish cannot get as kitschy as they think it is.
Apart the evolutionary design and wonderful body cues, the BMW i8 is also an extraordinary piece of German architecture, the model being the carmaker`s first plug-in hybrid, to use a conventional 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and an electric motor, the entire hybrid powertrain being hooked to a 7.1 kWh lithium-ion battery.
And the overall power is extraordinary, it is actually that makes it a standout plug-in hybrid, the model coming with 357 horsepower and 570 Nm of torque. And rest assure that BMW will not stop here and will keep on upgrading the current BMW i8, turning it into something that will revolutionize the entire hybrid industry once more.
