German-based carmaker BMW released its latest model, the 2019 BMW i8 Roadster back in March, with deliveries already starting in the United States and recently in the United Kingdom.
Well-received and appreciated all-over the world, the company`s newest toys has also attracted tuning companies, and that`s because of its design language and advanced technology.
One prove in this regard is the extensive tuning program that famous German-based aftermarket shop AC Schnitzer has carried out on the i8 Roadster. You can see full details about it in the media gallery below.
Famous for their exclusive programs, particularly at the exterior, AC Schnitzer have added a full body kit with parts made from carbon fiber. However, under the hood, the model has not received any new modifications. This means the same 1.5 three-cylinder turbocharged engine plus an electric motor, both delivering a total of 369 horsepower. It also manages an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds, meaning a 0.2 second difference compared with the i8 Coupe. The new battery also allows for an average consumption of 70 eMPG.
As for the exterior highlights, almost every inch of the car has been modified. Starting with the wheels, which is my favourite part, the technicians from AC Schnitzer have fitted 21 inches AC1 lightweight forged bi-colour, providing at the same time a 4.4 kg decrease in weight. They make the car extremely aggressive, especially since it sits lower to the ground, thanks to the new custom lowering spring kit.
From a visual standpoint, the 2019 BMW i8 Roadster by AC Schnitzer comes with a new front spoiler, middle front spoiler, front side wings and front and rear air outlets. There is also the “Racing” rear wing for more downforce or the 160 mm emblems on the sides, and the new door handle panels.
The interior perfectly complements the exterior with floor mats covered in velour, aluminum pedals and footrest.
