BMW i8 by EAS Looks Smashing with Sophisto Gray Wrap

There are some BMW products that are becoming increasingly popular amongst famous tuners worldwide.

Take for instance the BMW M2 Coupe, lately seen wearing one-off and eye-catching body styling kits and power boost under the hood. But the i8 is the present star, the carmaker`s first plug-in hybrid becoming the preferred subject for Hamann, Mansory and lately EAS aftermarket shops.

The technicians from European Auto Source of California have added some mods which make the i8 look more appealing and attractive.

The model can be admired in the media gallery below wearing the standout Sophisto Gray body wrap along with revised front splitter and bumpers.

It is common thing for EAS to leave the engine of a BMW intact, so we believe that this i8 comes with the stock yet high-performance hybrid powertrain.

The BMW i8 was unveiled with a I5 three-cylinder turbocharged TwinPower Turbo engine, developing 231 horsepower and sending the power to the rear axle. The conventional mill is coupled to an electric drive system which adds an extra 131 horsepower, all being sent to the front.

With all this sheer power, the plug-in hybrid is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, which makes it more outstanding than the M3 or M4. The all-electric range is also set at 35 km, at a topping of 120 km/h, with an overall of 530 km range.

The aftermarket specialists from European Auto Source have also released an impressive photo gallery with their latest work, enjoy the view and don’t forget to share your opinions with us!
