Rumour: BMW i8 Spyder Concept to hit Production

by Prateek Jose on December 18, 2013 No Comments

Rumours suggest that BMW s i8 Spyder concept car will go into production. The 2015 BMW i8 hybrid car is among the most eagerly anticipated releases of the year. It seems now that a convertible version of the model may also be waiting in the wings. BMW unveiled the convertible i8 Spyder while the model was still a concept.

However, reports tell us that the i8 has received approval from the higher-ups at BMW to go into production. If the rumours are in fact substantiated, the car can be expected to arrive by the end of 2015.

It was in 2012 that we were first given a look at the i8 Spyder, a car that immediately caught the fancy of the global audience. For the first time, BMW gave fans a clear look at a concept before it went into production, sans the glass door we re used to seeing on the company s concept cars. One of the main grouses that car buffs have with manufacturers is the way in which production versions fail to reflect the daring design elements that concepts sport.

However, news is that the styling of the i8 Spyder concept will be upheld to a great extent when it goes into production. This includes the tonneau humps, which are such a distinct facet of the car.

BMW insiders had been shown a prospective production unit which apparently wore a Solar Orange paintjob with blue highlights. This is the same colour scheme that has been used on the i3 and is a standard fixture on the i-series cars. In all probability, the car s drivetrain will be the same one used on the coupe-  a 1.5 litre Twin Power turbo-charged 3-cylinder petrol engine coupled with a lithium-ion electric mill.

It is capable of producing 231 hp in front and 131 hp at the back,  relayed to the wheels via a 6-speed gearbox. The electric motor can go about 35 kilometres before needing to be recharged.

The pricing of the i8 Spyder is obviously unknown at this point but it will be in the range of $135,925, which is how much BMW has said the coupe will cost. To understand how BMW prices its convertibles against the corresponding coupe, there is an $8000 difference between the 4 Series coupe and convertible.
