BMW i8 MODEL OVERVIEW


The BMW i8 is a hybrid supercar that features impressive performance and efficiency, making it the pinnacle of BMW’s “i” line of hybrid cars. It comes equipped with a standard 1.5L turbocharged gas 3- cylinder making 228 horsepower combined with an electric motor generating 129 horsepower. Altogether, the i8 kicks out an impressive 357 horsepower. This breathtaking power rockets the i8 from 0-60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds. The top speed of the i8 has to be electronically limited to 155 MPH.

The BMW i8 has a total range of 330 miles, which is more than long enough to drive throughout Miami, Kendall and all of South Florida. The EPA has estimated that the i8 gets 76 MPG equivalent when in hybrid mode, by far the best of any hypercar on the market today. It also is capable of making 28 MPG in gas-only mode.

The design of the i8 is modern and stylish, with clear influence from the legendary BMW M1, BMW’s last mid-engined hypercar before the i8. The interior is as luxurious as you’d expect from a BMW, with a variety of cutting-edge tech to help you get the most out of the unequaled i8. Drivers in the Miami and Kendall regions of South Florida can take a test drive today to have an unprecedented driving experience.
