A revolutionary plug-in hybrid, this true sports car utilizes the innovative eDrive technology to combine the efficiency of an all-electric motor and the power of a TwinPower Turbo engine for an exhilarating driving experience that’s every bit BMW.
RED HOT REVOLUTIONARY.
One of the most striking vehicles ever created by BMW i, the i8 Protonic Red is the future of the automobile. The number of these revolutionary sports cars in the U.S. is limited to 100 and in an eye-catching vibrant red and gone in a flash, you won’t forget it when you see it.
VIVID COLOR, ICONIC DESIGN.
This one-of-a-kind extraordinary red, developed exclusively for the i8, highlights the vehicle’s futuristic, athletic lines while exterior accents in Frozen Grey Metallic create a beautiful, contrasting aesthetic that stops traffic. New W-spoke 470 light-alloy wheels gleam in Orbit Grey Metallic with hubs painted in Aluminum Matte for an unmistakably sporty presence on the road.
Breakneck and every bit BMW, the powertrain on this exclusive i8 Protonic Red Edition propels it from 0-60 in a pulse racing 4.2 seconds. This vehicle has tremendous power, with an eDrive electric motor situated at the front axle and a TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine in the rear. These two powertrains deliver an innovative all-wheel drive sports car with a total system output of 357 horsepower, 420 lb-ft of torque and an electric boost inherent in BMW’s eDrive vehicles.
"Three pistons combusting internally, a dash of electrons and lots of aluminum and carbon fiber are the i8’s main ingredients. Its 357-hp hybrid powertrain drives all four wheels; in our hands, the i8 hit 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and saw 38 MPGe on our 200-mile test run. The poised chassis and sharp steering are good fun, but eco-friendly tires and regenerative braking hinder performance. Familiar controls nestle in a plush cabin; the i8’s eye-catching styling is straight out of a sci-fi flick." Car and Driver.
