BMW i8 arrived at the market early in the year 2014 to be a revolution in the sector. The bavarian manufacturer had created a sporty appearance of the supercar, a futuristic, using some solutions virtually unpublished in the models homologated for circulation on public roads. A revolutionary design with a aerodynamics very neat, carbon fiber pouring in and a system composite propellant. The result? A car of the future brought to the present.
This sporty hybrid coupe caused a sensation and, despite all the new solutions and the costs of development and production of a model like the i8, its starting price was and approximately 130,000 euros. Yes, it is a lot of money, and neither is it that develops 600 HP, but it does not seem excessively expensive for a car as well. The case is that, upon its release, many we wanted to see a BMW i8 Roadster. It’s been almost 4 years, but we can already say that the sporty hybrid convertible is very next, as revealed by this teaser.
The above video of the BMW i8 Roadster putting to the test “at the gym” has been recorded at the factory in Leipzig, in Germany, where it also assembles the BMW i8 Coupe. That video is quite short, it only lasts 24 seconds, but we gives some clues of how it will be the convertible model. We can see that soft top will be canvas and that the windows later will be smaller, so the rear visibility will be more fair in his brother coupe. In addition, we enjoyed how twists body or how to assemble some parts of the vehicle.
The BMW i8 Roadster to be unveiled officially the 28th November with reason Salon Automobile Los Angeles. It is sensed that the first units will reach their owners in the first half of 2018, although there is no official confirmation on the part of the German brand, as is also the there are of their prices. We also have the question of whether this body convertible will maintain the same mechanical version or if, on the contrary, will have updated the system composite propellant to improve its performance. Soon we will resolve all these doubts.
