The BMW i8 was unveiled in 2013 and was quite a real sensation kind of plug-in hybrid on the market, especially because of its artistic design that would eventually lead to exquisite customizations in the tuning world.
And so it happened, the i8`s body style and design language being highlighted by different aggressive tuning programs that would make it worthy of any fictional name and Hi-Fi film symbolistic.
We have seen it wearing the Dark Vather`s clothing and now we are witnessing another outstanding program, highlighted by the “Dark Night Edition” theme, especially designed by Japanese tuning company Energy Motor Sport.
The BMW i8 Dark Night Edition looks extremely cool and ultra-futuristic at the same time, which implies the fitting of the Energy Motor Sport`s Evo kit, meaning some one-off body styling pieces.
We are looking here at bespoke front bumper, over fender with duct, rear wing and rear flipper kit and mirror cover.
Other features also include the custom-built exhaust system or the extremely wide 21-inch alloy wheels, which makes the car extremely imposing. Inside, the model has also received red leather and other bespoke tweaks. Overall, we might be looking here at the perfect model to go for a night photo session.
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.
