Ok so we mislead you with the opening banner headline but at least we spelled it correctly for once. This isn’t the all new BMW i8 Gran Coupe it is a restyled concept created by our Photoshop style-In-Chief buddy, Remco.
The i8 is a plug-hybrid sports car that combines a turobocharged 1.5-litre, three cylinder engine with an electric motor that is capable of 23 miles on electric power alone.
The i8 has a combined performance rating of 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds, a top speed of 160 mph and can return a combined economy…. No, no, no. When you own a sports car economy or mpg figures should never be discussed.
Some people consider the i8 to be a supercar, we don’t we categorise it as a sports car, it could probably get away with being called a hybrid-supercar.
Remco Meulendijk from the Netherlands, used his superb Photoshop skills to imagine what a Gran Coupe would look like. And we think it looks spot on.
As a stretched 4-door coupe the i8 looks just as good as it does in standard SWB.
