The BMW i8 Roadster reveals itself as futuristic right down to the last detail. Its progressive lines speak a formal language that can hardly be more dynamic. The most striking feature: the imposing lightweight carbon-fibre hinged doors, which can be opened comfortably. The athletic front continues to display the individual character of the car and proudly bears the BMW double kidney, flanked by full-LED headlights and redesigned Air Curtains. Starting at the bonnet, the distinctive V-shaped black belt stretches along with the entire car, underscoring its flat silhouette. The impressive streamflow design also optimises airflow and creates unprecedented aerodynamics. Thus, the BMW i8 Roadster is a perfect symbiosis of form and function that knows only one destination: ultimate freedom.
The interior of the BMW i8 Roadster also underscores its unique character. This is immediately apparent from the exclusive feature line Accaro Amido/E-Copper. The interior also reflects the dynamic lines of the exterior design, creating a futuristic dynamic throughout the cockpit. The centre cockpit is inclined to the driver and the controls are arranged intuitively – ensuring maximum driver orientation and clarity. Optimum lateral support and maximum comfort are provided by the new electrically-adjustable sport seats with memory function. Behind the seats is additional storage space. With the optional Travel Packet, retractable dividers and an extra Nappa Leather map pocket are available. In the dark, the LED interior lighting ensures a high-quality ambience. The contour lines of the doors, the instrument panel, the centre console and the steering wheel can be optionally and alternately dipped in the colours EfficientDynamics Blue, Amber Yellow and White.
The BMW i8 Roadster takes even the headwind’s breath away. This is not only due to its athletic appearance, but also its streamlined body, the extreme lightweight construction and the layered design of the LED tail lights, which the wind flows through.
Take the lead. It’s easy with the new BMW i8 Roadster. One of the reasons is its exceptional lightweight concept: the LifeDrive Architecture. It consists of the Drive module – an aluminium chassis and the Life module – an ultralight passenger compartment made of high-strength carbon-fibre. Both components are weight-optimised down to the last gram in order to take thought-out sustainability with perfected sportiness efficiently to the road.
BMW ConnectedDrive offers innovative solutions that provide high connectivity for the new BMW i8 Roadster – for a fully intelligent and sustainable form of mobility. For example, the BMW ConnectedDrive services for navigation always provide the most efficient route to the destination. In addition, the BMW Connected App Remote Services for iOS and Android give you plenty of relevant information about your BMW i8 Roadster – just a fingertip away.
